Have you ever built a root-cause algorithm?
Root cause is so dependent upon each individual network with all of its nuances so it’s difficult to find one-size-fits-all methods. Individuals can develop the experience and can learn to read the signs and understand the linkages. Machine learning can too.
One technique that I find transfers across networks is to build root cause algorithms around network hierarchy (if your network has a hierarchy). eg VPNs over Ethernet over MPLS over transmission over fibres bundled in cables inside conduits / trenches.
If a conduit is taken out by a backhoe then all child elements and related alarms can be ignored / suppressed.
Do you have any root-cause algorithms that transfer well across networks?Read the Passionate About OSS blog for more.
