Improving Network Performance I

GSP045

Google Cloud Self-Paced Labs

Overview

In this hands-on lab you get to read through some real-world scenarios, recreate the environments, and work on improving the performance of some troubled networks.

What will be fun to try is comparing the different instances to each other, just like the trouble-shooting use case, so you can prove the results and become familiar with the steps used to improve your own systems' performance.

This lab was adapted from blog posts by Colt McAnlis: Core Count and the Egress problem and Internal IP vs External IP. Colt blogs about Google Cloud network performance on Medium.

What you'll learn

  • How to test network connectivity and performance using open source tools

  • How to inspect network traffic using open oource tools

  • How the size of your machine can affect the performance of your network

Prerequisites
