Why HPC Clusters Require Ultra-Low Latency Network Monitoring

High performance computing (HPC) requires an extremely high-powered network with ultra-low latency to move large files between HPC nodes quickly. IT and network operations (NetOps) teams in industries such as financial service, oil and gas, animation/3D rendering and pharmaceutical research need to monitor their networks in exacting detail to ensure they can support HPC workloads. But monitoring latency and other metrics at HPC-class performance levels creates a new set of challenges, including monitoring packets at 40Gbps and 100Gbps speeds, measuring latency at millisecond and nanosecond intervals, and detecting miniscule “microbursts” of traffic before they cause performance issues.
