IBM Researchers participated in a Skydive Hackathon which took place on 2-4 October (2019). Skydive is an open source real-time network topology and protocols analyzer providing a comprehensive way of understanding what is happening in your network infrastructure. Skydive is an important tool to support the Sodalite Monitoring.

The topics covered in the Hackathon include:

  • Project Governance
  • New native package dependencies (go.mod)
  • eBPF probe code walk
  • New AWS Flow Logs format
  • Reporting errors in flow capture via WebSocket

The network flow capture and log format impact how we report network information to the Sodalite Monitoring component.
