Network Observability at LinkedIn

Audience: Intermediate

The LinkedIn infrastructure has thousands of services serving millions of requests per second. At this scale, various kinds of data points must be collected, processed and observed to maintain the health of the infrastructure - one of them is network flows.

Our infrastructure components export flows at the rate of 2M packets per second. This talk describes a data collection, processing and storage system for network flow data written in Erlang. It gives an overview of the system’s architecture and some of the interesting challenges we faced while scaling this system.
