Abstract

Juniper Networks seeks to support enterprise networking customers by providing automated data collection and device monitoring services. The Lightweight Collector (LWC) project is designed to gather data from network devices on customer sites, process this data to cloud services, and present an interface for customer exploration. We designed a dashboard to aid in the diagnosis of underlying LWC issues, developed novel machine-learned techniques for semantic data type detection in a network domain, and built a system to gather LWC performance information through Amazon Web Services (AWS) Greengrass. Our work equipped the development team with a set of preliminary software components that increase the visibility of the behaviors of the LWC and facilitate the collection of network data.
