Network monitoring software enables your IT team to effectively monitor your mission critical network infrastructure.
Good network monitoring software applications will monitor the physical network, including switches, routers and other important equipment associated with the network infrastructure.
Network monitoring software can also perform many other tasks, including: mapping IT networks, auditing software, managing IT assets, regulating power consumption, CPU usage and assisting with configuration and change management.
Many network monitoring software applications will monitor a network in near real-time, ensuring that any problems can be swiftly addressed. Network monitoring software tends to run either as a server application, or can be installed as a standalone network applicance (usually with a web based user interface).
