In the previous modules, you’ve learned how to create reports from data gathered from network devices, create device configurations from data models, automate device and service provisioning, and integrate individual components you built into a full-blown network services orchestration system.

It’s time to move to the next level: respond to significant events reported by your network in real time and adjust the network behavior accordingly. Welcome to the challenging world of Event-Driven Automation.

In this module, you’ll discover the unpleasant reality: it’s hard to define what an event is, and it’s hard to identify significant events based on plethora of messages the network devices are sending you in form of SNMP traps, SYSLOG messages or streaming telemetry. You’ll also find several tools you could use, and learn more about SALT, a tool that’s becoming more popular in complex automation environments that would be hard to handle with simple tools like Ansible.
