About the Talk

When I joined the networking team at DigitalOcean a few years ago, I dove into an entirely different world of software-defined networking in the data center. Virtual switches, networking protocols — these were concepts that I had encountered at the surface level before — but now I frequently found myself debugging them. With time, I came to rely on a variety of Linux networking tools for introspecting, troubleshooting, and examining network state. In this talk, I’ll share some of my favorite Linux networking tools and discuss scenarios in which they are quite helpful.

Situations in which popular Linux networking tools can be leveraged.
