Host-INT brings network packet telemetry

Conclusion

Host-INT adds packet telemetry to Linux hosts, providing an effective way to monitor network conditions in data centers, including congestion, packet drops, and latency. Host-INT works to provide an outside-in look at network performance, and you can combine it with Switch-INT for a more comprehensive management tool. The software and more documentation are available on GitHub [3].
