Skydive is an open source real-time network topology and protocols analyzer. It aims to provide a comprehensive way of understanding what is happening in the network infrastructure.
Skydive agents collect topology informations and flows and forward them to a central agent for further analysis. All the informations are stored in an Elasticsearch database.
Skydive is SDN-agnostic but provides SDN drivers in order to enhance the topology and flows informations.
- Captures network topology and flows
- Full history of network topology and flows
- Ability to follow a flow along a path in the topology
- Supports VMs and Containers infrastructure
- Unified query language for topology and flows (Gremlin)
- Web and command line interfaces
- REST API
- Easy to deploy (standalone executable)
- Connectors to OpenStack, Docker, OpenContrail
To quick set up a working environment, Docker Compose can be used to automatically start an Elasticsearch container, a Skydive analyzer container and a Skydive agent container.
curl -o docker-compose.yml https://raw.githubusercontent.com/skydive-project/skydive/master/contrib/docker/docker-compose.yml docker-compose up
Open a browser to http://localhost:8082 to access the analyzer Web UI.
You can also use the Skydive command line client with:
docker run --net=host -ti skydive/skydive client query "g.V()"
You can also download the latest release and use the
all-in-one mode which
will start an Agent and an Analyzer at once.
sudo skydive allinone [-c skydive.yml]
