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 tools also ensure that any problems are mitigated such that the network is restored to optimum operating conditions.

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.

Pricing Information

Network Performance Monitoring tools are most commonly sold as a one-time license or perpetually licensed, although limited free versions are often available for very small networks. Pricing scales with the scope of the buyer's network. One-time purchase plans are usually structured as tiers of coverage, with each tier providing support up to a certain threshold of devices and/or servers. Perpetual licenses are more granular, with pricing scaling per device monitored. Plans targeted towards smaller business networks start around $2,000 for one-time purchases, and can range up towards $60,000 for large-scale enterprise plans. Perpetual license pricing can vary as well.

Additionally, some monitoring software is open-source and free to use. For these products, vendor support and/or official add-ons may be paid services on top of the free platform.
