Automation Story: Building a Network Inventory Database

What’s the next logical automation step after you cleaned up device configurations and started using configuration templates? It obviously depends on your pain points; for Anne Baretta it was a network inventory database stored in SQL tables (and thus readily accessible from his other projects).

Notes

  • I’m also saddened that it’s often really hard to get data out of a network management product;
  • Check out our network automation course when you’re ready to start your own automation journey.
