Network Monitoring

Network Monitoring Solutions

Reduce the risk of downtime and proactively manage network issues before they affect users and customers. Get immediate visibility into device performance.

What are Network Monitoring Solutions?

Network monitoring solutions are important software tools that help you stay one step ahead of network problems by giving you visibility into device health and traffic patterns. Get a proactive inventory of your devices that shows you status and performance metrics that help prevent outages and downtime. Solutions provide either agentless network monitoring, collecting data using protocols already installed on your IT servers, applications, and hardware to collect data, or agent-based, relying on installing agents on every item you want to monitor.

 

Network Monitoring Concepts

Network Probes

Here’s how network monitoring probes work and why they’re important.

A network probe delivers a question to your devices and quickly returns with the specific information you need. This sounds simple, but their job is critical as it gives IT and network administrators the power to monitor performance in real time.

SNMP

what is snmp and how it works

SNMP stands for simple network management protocol. It's an application layer protocol that talks to your network to find out information related to network device activity like bytes, packets, and errors transmitted and received on a router, connection speed between devices, or the number of hits a web server receives.

Network Mapping

Network mapping creates a diagram of all the devices and infrastructure connecting to your network.

Self-Healing Network

Self Healing Networks with Network Automation

self-healing network uses network monitoring combined with an automation tool to resolve network issues immediately and without having to get anyone involved, saving your IT team valuable time.

Real-Time Network Monitoring

Real-time network monitoring gives you fast, frequent, and reliable network polling in as little as 30 seconds.

How Network Monitoring Solutions Help Organizations Prevent Outages

As your network grows, manual management becomes impossible as optimal network performance requires 24/7 monitoring. Network monitoring solutions show you every physical and virtual device, application, and system running on your network to make this process faster, easier, and more effective. When there's trouble on the network, from an overloaded switch to a failed router, network visibility lets you easily identify culprit devices—saving your organization time and money. Here's how:

  • Visual maps guide IT teams straight to issues
  • Alerts help you spot issues before they get worse
  • Hybrid IT monitoring helps you maintain smooth network performance across all your distributed technology
