Network Performance Monitoring Software Overview

What is Network Performance Monitoring Software?

A network performance monitoring system monitors the entire network for performance problems and collects performance data such as network traffic analysis performance bottlenecks, network delays, packet losses, crashed servers or other problems.

Network Performance Management Increasingly Important?

The IT network environment is becoming ever more complex with the proliferation of virtualized components, cloud-based services, and BYOD (Bring your own device), and understanding how resources are being consumed and why slowdowns are occurring is critically important.

In addition to standard metrics like response time, availability, and uptime, consistency and reliability are measured against clearly defined performance benchmarks and are becoming the norm.
