Network monitoring

February 19, 2024
Network monitoring is a set of software and hardware tools for tracking network parameters and operation: traffic, bandwidth, and uptime. With their help, network administrators promptly detect failures in devices or connections and find traffic bottlenecks - slow or failed elements.
With network monitoring, an administrator can monitor network performance in real time, identify weaknesses, and optimize efficiency.

Why network monitoring is needed

  • IT infrastructure failures increase the risk of financial losses for business due to downtime, reduced productivity, lost profits. Network infrastructure monitoring helps to track the processes that occur in the company’s network to prevent failures in a timely manner.
  • Network monitoring allows you to control all the devices connected to it and the traffic passing through it.
  • Companies and organizations that need to comply with regulatory requirements need easy-to-use network monitoring tools.
  • Network monitoring programs can help you identify security threats to your system in a timely manner.

Network monitoring protocols

Network monitoring protocols allow you to monitor network health and detect performance issues.

  • SNMP is a simple application layer protocol with a call and response system to check the status of various devices. It is suitable for monitoring system status.
  • ICMP is a protocol for sending information about IP operations and errors when devices fail. It is used in routers and servers.
  • ThousandEyes – A synthetic protocol for monitoring and proactively detecting performance problems.
