Techniques are presented herein that support a new, low-overhead network topology discovery mechanism that is based on data from existing operational log sources such as, for example, syslog entries. Such an approach lowers the operational cost of any solution that requires knowledge of a network’s topology. Additionally, such an approach allows for the ongoing rediscovery of a network’s topology to track over time the documented or undocumented evolution of the same.
