Understanding Intent-Based Analytics (IBA) in Apstra Operating System (AOS)
Intent-Based Analytics (IBA) is an important feature of AOS and a main enabler for closed loop telemetry. IBA allows network operators to specify how they expect their network to operate and continuously validates their intent, generating alerts when it detects a deviation. AOS provides a real-time representation of all state in the system, including interfaces to physical elements such as switches and links. It also shows virtual elements, security zones and applications — all part of the same graph. This white paper shares a basic understanding of the Apstra AOS solution, and the benefits IBA provides.
