Riverbed Opens Up Network Device Visibility with Flyscript

Flyscript is an umbrella effort across the Riverbed portfolio, initially providing REST-based APIs as well as a Python SDK to enable developers to extend and integrate with specific Riverbed technologies.

Christopher White, senior director, Riverbed Technology Council, explained to Enterprise Networking Planet that Flyscript builds on an existing effort at Riverbed. For the past 10 years, the Stingray product has had a technology called TrafficScript that enables developers to extend that platform. Riverbed acquired the Stingray technology in July 2011, when it bought technology vendor Zeus.

Riverbed is now taking that same basic idea of extensible APIs and bringing it to the Cascade Profiler and Cascade Shark networking profiling and monitoring devices.
