This week marks a milestone for Intel and Snap, our open telemetry platform that allows you to easily collect, process, and publish telemetry data at scale. We are thrilled to announce the release of our 1.0 version of Snap, almost one year from when we launched our original beta.
It was a privilege to sit in a workshop for Intel Snap during Intel Developer Forum 2016 which demonstrated low-level visibility into the hardware of the x86 platform. CPU Queues, memory buffers, bus activity and much more.
For me, this matters when running virtual network instances (NFV) and having visibility into the performance of the not only the VM/Container but the hardware they are using. If there is a performance problem, we have tools to diagnose whether the hardware or software is a problem.
Worth checking out and knowing about it.
