Have you ever heard of a network complexity index (NCI)? It turns out it can be very helpful information to pass on to executives to help them see how various changes are adding to their network complexity over time. A new open-source tool will be released next month by Infoblox called "Tapestry" that will provide this index by measuring endpoint interaction data from control systems throughout the network, like DNS.
The software-defined networking angle for this tool comes in when you look at where the tool will be running – an open-source SDN control plane called "Loom." Tapestry will be available on FlowForwarding.org next month.
