sFlow telemetry from the switches and routers comprising The International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC16) network. The chart shows a number of conference participants pushing the network to see how much data they can transfer, peaking at a combined bandwidth of 3 Terabits/second over a minute just before noon and sustaining over 2.5 Terabits/second for over an hour. The traffic is broken out by MAC vendors code: routed traffic can be identified by router vendor (Juniper, Brocade, etc.) and layer 2 transfers (RDMA over Converged Ethernet) are identified by host adapter vendor codes (Mellanox, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, etc.).
From the SCinet web page, "The Fastest Network Connecting the Fastest Computers: SC16 will host the most powerful and advanced networks in the world – SCinet. Created each year for the conference, SCinet brings to life a very high-capacity network that supports the revolutionary applications and experiments that are a hallmark of the SC conference."
SC16 live real-time weathermaps provides additional demonstrations of high performance network monitoring.
