Paragon Insights Push-Model Overview
As the number of objects in the network, and the metrics they generate, have grown, gathering operational statistics for monitoring the health of a network has become an ever-increasing challenge. Traditional ’pull’ data-gathering models, like SNMP and the CLI, require additional processing to periodically poll the network element, and can directly limit scaling.
The ’push’ model overcomes these limits by delivering data asynchronously, which eliminates polling. With this model, the Paragon Insights server can make a single request to a network device to stream periodic updates. As a result, the ’push’ model is highly scalable and can support the monitoring of thousands of objects in a network. Junos devices support this model in the form of the Junos Telemetry Interface (JTI).
Paragon Insights currently supports five ‘push’ ingest types.
