SDN solutions are complex and troubleshooting/monitoring them is even harder. It seems that while we have improved the automation of the network we have lost visibility and operability. For example, in order to troubleshoot an issue you have to understand the network in general but also to have a deep understanding of how the SDN solution is implementing the network. And if you have multiple SDN solutions deployed – for example, managing containers on VMs on a cloud platform - finding the root cause of an issue starts to be really hard.

In this presentation, I will introduce a new project called Skydive which some colleagues started a few months ago, which aims to bring back visibility and operability to the network. I will explain the global design and concepts, how to setup a lab environment, and what we would like to see happen next.
