What is Network Monitoring?

Network Monitoring

Network monitoring is a critical IT process that tracks network components and endpoints and provides fault, performance, and traffic monitoring. It involves monitoring critical network issues, providing fault detection, and health monitoring of various network elements from the device level to the protocol and interface levels.

Network monitoring systems include tools that track network operations. It is critical to monitor traffic, bandwidth utilization, and other metrics using performance counters. Further, examining the health and performance of network interfaces for their faults helps to manage various network resources, both on-site and remote. Network monitoring helps IT admins reduce the meantime to repair (MTTR) to solve real-time network performance issues with instant alerting and data in the form of tables, charts, graphs, dashboards, and reports.

Why are network monitoring tools important?

Businesses rely on networks, whether they're on-site or remote. Network monitoring tools are crucial to:

  • Ensure continuous uptime with good health for uninterrupted business operations.
  • Provide insights on the performance of every network device and interface, along with their hierarchy.
  • Analyze the performance at the device and interface levels using performance metrics.
  • Identify threats well in advance.
  • Generate alerts and avert downtimes.

How does the Site24x7 network monitoring tool work?

Site24x7 Network Monitoring is an agentless, Software as a Service (SaaS) network monitoring system 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, discards, and other performance data 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.
