In December, AWS announced the new VPC Reachability Analyzer tool. Using this tool, AWS can analyse the paths within your VPC to determine whether the various components in your VPC can communicate with each other or not. This can be useful for network connectivity and security:
Today, Skeddly’s adding a new action to assist with your network path analyses: Start Network Insights Analyses
With this new action, you can start analysing your pre-defined network insights paths on any schedule you want, sending you an email summary when the analyses are complete.
First off, why is the action called “Start Network Insights Analyses”?

When Skeddly starts the analyses, it can add tags to the analyses.
When the action completes, a report can be emailed to you summarizing the findings. The email can be sent to the email address of the primary Skeddly user, or one or more alternate email addresses.
The report can be in many different formats:
This new action is available today. Pricing for it can be found on our pricing pages.
