Mix Master Mitch Wilson - a sales engineer for network performance measuring vendor Plixer International, has written and performed a hilariously funny hip-hop rap masterpiece, the Cisco NetFlow Rap, that you can now enjoy by watching the video below:
Lyrics of the Cisco NetFlow Rap song:
Workin’ in IT’s a breeze
Got my chair back, feet up, crossing my knees (cuz I’m feelin’ it)
Got the collector running data, it’s reelin’ it
Writing data to mySQL, there’s no sense concealing it
Finally realized I needed a tool
Called up the Plixer and they took me to school
Engineer’s on site, and if that wasn’t enough
Even set me up to integrate their stuff with WhatsUp
Tables charts and graphs galore
Signed up for the webinar and learned that there was even more
Now I can run a report
And find out which cohorts are busy building heavy forts on my ports
Check my Top Conversations every single minute
Now when there’s a network battle, instantly I win it
There’s not another tool on the market to top this
I got a group and a flash map for every office
Now when I’m off eating crawfish
An alarm is set off, and I will know, so I can instantly stop this
Go go to Plixer and they won’t steer you wrong
Then you too could sit back and listen to this song
But if you don’t go, I won’t be held responsible
When you get busted by the network constable
You need this, in any given network today
Don’t know how you’ve been livin’ with no NBA
If every day you fall victim to performance paralysis
I don’t know why you think you don’t need behavior analysis
So if you’re waitin’, procrastinatin’, hesitatin’, and tool debatin’
You can escape from the fake statement you’re statin’ and makin’
It’s frustrating, making mistakes, because you’re pacin’ and waitin’
For the boss to stop flaking, wake up and stop the budget breaking
So many vowel sounds that now my head is aching
May fall off because it’s loose, just like the feet of Kevin Bacon
But back to the track and the point that I was makin’
Hold up, there’s a phone call that I’m about to be takin’
There’s a radio station, somebody listens to it
But there’s an issue because there’s not enough legit bandwidth
We can resolve this real quick, just ran a report and found out that it’s Chris
Went to his cubicle and said Chris what’s this
The T1 is lit, the boss is pissed and pitching a fit
What’s that? How did we find out about it?
With the Plixer Flow Analytics
I spit this, just like a baby spits spinach
Flow Analytics will finish your decision, due to the features within it
Competition watching - chances of winnin’ business diminish
Like they were presidential running mates of Dennis Kucinich.
