Network administrators often desire redundancy when creating telemetry subscriptions in order to ensure that updates are not lost if a particular receiver fails. However, dynamic telemetry subscriptions do not offer a natural way to achieve such a redundancy. Proposed herein are techniques to facilitate redundancy for dynamic telemetry subscriptions through which multiple telemetry data receivers, that each initiate a dynamic telemetry subscription Remote Procedure Call (RPC) towards a device, can be attached to an existing subscription initiated by a first receiver as long as parameters for the subscription RPCs initiated by the receivers are identical to parameters for the existing subscription initiated by the first receiver. Such techniques can be utilized to reduce duplication in collecting data from a backend and also to enable higher scaling.
