What is the purpose of Network Monitoring? Why is Network Monitoring important?

network monitoring and management


Network monitoring is an integral part of network monitoring and management. It can help you identify problems with your network, track down slow, clogged and failing links, and even provide the information you need to keep your business running smoothly.

Network monitoring can help you track down slow, clogged, or failing network links.

There are many reasons why a link on your network might be slow. For example:

  • The link is not capable of handling the amount of traffic that is being sent through it at any given time. 
  • The link has been disabled by mistake and needs to be re-enabled before it can be used again.

Once you have identified the problem with your links and reinstalled them with new software updates, then it’s time to look at what else may be happening on your network:

Network monitoring tools can provide visibility into how resources are being used on your network.

They can help you find out which users are using the most bandwidth, and even give you an idea of how much capacity is available for future growth. Network monitoring tools also allow you to easily see what applications and devices are accessing the network at any given time. This helps in determining whether there’s enough capacity left for other users, or if it’s time to upgrade some parts of your infrastructure such as switches or routers.

Network monitoring can provide the information you need to keep your network – and the business it supports – running smoothly.

  • Network monitoring tools can help track down slow, clogged, or failing network links. By analyzing traffic patterns over time, they can identify when a particular link has slowed down significantly and make recommendations on how to fix it. This can save both time and money by avoiding unnecessary downtime while waiting for repairs or replacement parts. 
  • Network monitoring tools provide visibility into how resources are being used on your network so that you know where capacity needs improvement before problems arise (e.g., CPU utilization). This allows you to prioritize projects accordingly based on their importance within different departments within your organization; if one department is underperforming due to lack of resources but another one doesn’t have enough capacity yet because everything else has been prioritized higher up on their list then maybe those resources should go towards helping out this second group first until there’s room again later down through those other departments which could take longer than expected due simply because there weren’t enough earlier on when first starting out doing this sort of thing.”

Network performance monitoring is a critical part of overall network management.

Network performance monitoring is a critical part of overall network management. The goal of this type of monitoring is to identify problems and issues with your network, so you can resolve them before they become larger problems. 

  • Network performance: This type of monitoring looks at how fast data travels between devices on the network, how much bandwidth is available for users, whether there are any packet loss issues (or other types) and other information related to speed or latency in your network.
  • Security: Security issues may stem from either hacker trying to break into your system using brute force attacks (the most common), or malicious code that has been injected into legitimate software packages by attackers who want access without having their identities revealed—this kind of threat includes viruses but also includes more serious threats such as malware infections if left unchecked long enough.

Monitoring your network gives you the data you need to improve it. 

A healthy network is important for maintaining a productive environment, and monitoring helps detect problems before they affect users.


Network monitoring is one of the best ways to make sure your network is running efficiently and effectively. By using this technology, you can maximize the performance of your network, minimize downtime and outages, and even reduce costs by identifying areas that need improvement before they become problems for users.
