Kentik has been great for us on notification and analysis.
They are pretty much accurate and you can set-up tons of alerts and even action.
For example Automatic blackhole for DDoS
I wouldn’t use them to shift your traffic around (aka traffic engineering) but I'm sure you can set that up as well.

I know this topic has gone around a couple times but wondering if there are any new strong opinions on inbound+outbound traffic analysis with a bonus for excellence in traffic engineering at the edge. A typical use case would be finding an AS or prefix representing a large volume of inbound and/or outbound traffic via provider A that could just as well or better be moved via provider B.

I know solutions like Kentik do a lot more but I’m focusing on just the above use case. Also ignoring the cloud vs. on-prem difference, assume that doesn’t matter.

Will reward any helpful advice with a picture of me give you a virtual high-five or 2 thumbs up. Your choice.
