Monday, 12 May 09:00 – 11:00


Stefan Wallin, Tail-f

Network providers are challenged by new requirements for fast and error-free service turn-up. Existing approaches to configuration management, such as CLI scripting, device-specific adapters, and entrenched commercial tools, are an impediment to meeting these new requirements. Until recently, there has been no standard way of configuring network devices other than SNMP, which is not optimal for configuration management. The IETF has released NETCONF (RFC 6241) and YANG (RFC 6020), which are standards focusing on configuration management. The presentation will give a technical overview of these standards, and will show how NETCONF and YANG address issues around automation and programmability. The tutorial will also contain live demos.

Applying IPFIX to Network Measurement and Management

Brian Trammell, ETH Zürich

This tutorial gives an overview of the IETF IPFIX (IP Flow Information Export) protocol. IPFIX provides an extensible information model, self-describing data format and protocol for the export of IP traffic flow information. It is further applicable to any application area dealing with relatively large volumes of semantically similar event data. The tutorial uses open-source tools (the python ipfix module and the QoF passive performance monitor) to illustrate existing and new applications of IPFIX, as well as the technical details of the protocol.

Using RIPEstat

Christian Teuschel, RIPE NCC

RIPEstat is the RIPE NCC’s “one-stop-shop” for information related to Internet number resources – data that can be very helpful in the daily operation of a network. In this tutorial, attendees are introduced to RIPEstat and will learn to use its features in interactive sessions, such as creating a dashboard to monitor their network. Laptops are required.
