NANOG 86 Keynote Speaker - Harlan Stenn

Tech Pioneer Talks about "The NTP Project" + the Importance of Timekeeping in Tech. 

Network Time Protocol (NTP) Project Manager + President of the Network Time Foundation, Harlan Stenn to the NANOG 86 Keynote stage!

Watch Now.

Keynote Talk Title: Me, NTP, The NTP Project, and Network Time Foundation - How We Got Here: Welcome to my Hallucination.

About Stenn: Harlan Stenn is a nearly 50-year veteran of the IT industry. Harlan began programming computers in high school in 1971. He holds a bachelors degree in Business Administration (Accounting) from The Colorado College in Colorado Springs, and an MSE in Computer Science from Washington University in St. Louis.

A well-versed entrepreneur, Harlan has launched several successful businesses and has been a respected, sought-after I/T consultant and contractor for decades who is well known for writing astonishingly portable C code since the early 1980s. To put it another way, if NTP is Dave Mills' edifice, Harlan is its janitor.

In mid-2011 he started Network Time Foundation (NTF), with the mission to provide direct services and support to improve the state of accurate computer network timekeeping. NTF now works with several time-related projects, including NTP, Ntimed, Linux PTP, RADclock, and the General Timestamp API and Library. The GTSAPI is a way to make sure that a timestamp contains enough information to be useful outside of the system on which it was “taken". Several new projects are in the works, including Khronos, and several SyncE packages.

Preface: History of the Network Time Foundation -  From the earliest days of human history, people have had a close relationship with time...

Computers aren't intelligent; they keep poor time. So how do global networks track when a transaction happened and the nanoseconds that make up a timestamp count? Learn More

NANOG 86 Health + Safety

The health and safety of meeting attendees are very important to us. We believe the most effective way to ensure the safety of all attendees is to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 . Please note that proof of vaccination will not be required to attend NANOG 86. Be aware that while NANOG will make every effort to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission on site, it is possible that you may come into contact with people that carry the virus through your travels.

Full Abstract

How often do you find yourself doing the same set of commands when troubleshooting issues in your network? I am willing to bet the answer to this is: quite often! Usually we have a list of our favorite commands that we will always use to quickly narrow down a specific problem type.

Switch reloaded unexpectedly? "show reload cause"
Fan failure? "show environment power"
Fiber link reporting high errors or down on your monitoring system? "show interface counters errors", "show interface transceiver", "show interface mac detail"

Outputs like the above examples help you quickly pinpoint the source of your failures for remediation. SSH'ing into the boxes and running these commands by hand is time consuming, especially if you are for example a NOC dealing with numerous failures throughout the day. Most switch platforms have API's now and you can instead program against them to get these outputs in seconds. We will go over a variety of examples and creative ways to use these scripts for optimal use of your troubleshooting time and to get you away from continually doing these repetitive tasks by hand.

NOTE: The tutorial examples will be using python and the Arista pyeapi module with Arista examples, but the concepts can easily be transferred to other platforms and languages.

Cat Gurinsky: Cat Gurinsky is a senior network engineer working on global large scale datacenter deployments. In previous network engineering roles for higher education and data center companies before that, she has worked on everything from enterprise and wireless deployments to internet exchanges and data centers. She first started working in network engineering in 2007 and began attending NANOG in 2009. Cat has previously served NANOG as part of the Development Committee from 2011-2012. She has served on the program committee since 2019 in the roles of secretary and vice-chair prior to becoming the current chair, which also makes her the current PC liaison on the NANOG board. Cat has a passion for BGP, Python, Arista eAPI, network tools, automation and anything that can help make life easier in large scale networks.
