I have also used Kentik's months of historical data for forensic work, especially with my old job. I was at a service provider previously and we got DDoS'd all the time, constantly. It was much easier for me to go back in time and look at some of these DDoS events and look at the signatures so I could just figure out which buckets most of them fit into. I could say, "Okay, I had these many incidents, these are the different types of issues I saw, and maybe if we take these actions we might be able to stop this kind and that kind of DDoS." It was much easier for me to go back and look at it as a holistic view.

In terms of the solution's months of historical data for forensic work, we reformulated the way we calculate costs so we had to go back into the historical data and use that raw data to calculate the costs again. It wasn't necessarily forensic networking, but it was forensic cost and business work.

We have also used Kentik's months of historical data for forensic work. It tells us what the heck happened. When you're in it, you're just trying to do what you can to get things working again. That historical view allows us to go back and say, "Okay, we had this major outage last week. We know that it was partially due to this, but what actually happened and what was impacted by what was going on?"
