What is network monitoring?
Network monitoring is an IT process that analyzes and monitors the availability, health, and performance of network devices in your office environment, such as routers, switches, and firewalls. This process also includes closely tracking other network components, endpoints, and links for their faults that help to diagnose, optimize, and manage various network resources both on-site and remote.
Network monitoring tools collect and analyze data from network devices and interfaces. Network monitoring software provides users with processed data in the form of tables, charts, graphs, and dashboards. It also delivers reports which correlate data, and helps IT admins interpret valuable information. In a nutshell, network monitoring tools ensure the availability and continuous uptime of network devices and their connections.
Why network performance monitoring is important?
Businesses rely on networks, whether they're on-site or remote. Ensuring continuous uptime with good health is crucial for uninterrupted business operations. Network monitoring tools provide insights on the performance of every network device and interface, along with their hierarchy. Site24x7, multi-vendor supporting, cloud-based, and scalable real-time network monitoring software, monitors your network 24x7 and helps reduce network outages.
Site24x7—A full-fledged network monitoring software
With our comprehensive cloud network monitoring tool, a brainchild of ManageEngine OpManager, you can easily drill down to the root cause of network issues with a complete network analysis. The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) trap processors and advanced alerting mechanisms let you detect anomalies instantly. Ensure uptime and fault management of all your SNMP devices with a secure, firewall-friendly architecture.
Monitor network traffic: Monitor the in and out traffic, packets, errors, and discards, and analyze the network performance based on these insights.
Identify network activities and traffic at the interface-level.
Ensure network and data security by tracking key attributes like backplane utilization.
Check the signal strength, data transfer rates, and usage metrics.
Gain insights into metrics like input volt, remaining battery stats, etc.
Analyze traffic distribution, and performance across data centers.
Obtain insights about VPN latency, session count, and tunnel flaps.
Track the number of pages printed, marker life count, and more.
Analyze memory size, buffer size for proper capacity planning of RAIDs and tape libraries.
WAN Accelerator Monitoring
Optimize WAN performance by monitoring WAN accelerators.
Track key metrics with our network monitoring solution
Monitor SNMP performance counters and tabular performance counters of all your devices. Add new counters and set threshold values to get notified instantly when a particular counter crosses its set value.
Track key metrics, including:
- Memory and CPU usage
- Undersize packets
- Oversize packets
- Interface in giants
- Drop event statistics
- Jabber packets
- Backplane utilization
- Active session count
- Buffer failures
- Interface collisions
- Disk utilization

Features of Site24x7 network monitoring software
Automatically discover all the devices present within a provided IP range, or a whole network (LAN or WAN) using SNMP.
Over 450 vendors like Cisco, HP, Canon, Juniper, D-Link, and Dell are supported, and you can monitor anything more by just entering the sysOID.
There are over 10000 device templates with custom options that offer predefined attributes, making the configuration easy and simple.
Obtain complete visibility using maps. Automate discovery and mapping with Layer 2 maps and create your network schema using topology maps.
View top devices based on response time and packet loss; and top interfaces based on traffic, bandwidth utilization, errors, and discards.
SNMP Trap Processing
Configure network devices to send SNMP traps to Site24x7, and receive processed alert messages for any trap defined in your SNMP MIB.
How does our network monitoring tool work?
Site24x7 Network Monitoring is an agentless, Software as a Service (SaaS) network monitoring solution that collects data from your network using an On-Premise Poller. This helps monitor both your internal and external networks. The Site24x7 network monitoring tool is SNMP based. You can either specify an IP range, or use Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) to discover the devices in your network. You can mention discovery rules, and device and interface filters which help to fine-tune the discovery. Once added, the On-Premise Poller starts to fetch data like traffic, bandwidth, packets, error, and discards from your devices.
You can configure threshold limits for all the key performance metrics at the device and interface level so that you can take corrective measures on any breach, and keep the network performance under control.
