7 benefits of network monitoring

Published on 29 November 16

Network monitoring has become one of the most important, and occasionally overlooked, tasks for any company that depends on IT systems. So, probably the business you own or work for (unless you're a market farmer or a manufacturer of medieval lutes). You know what happens if your IT system is down - lost business, customer dissatisfaction, unproductive employees - and if you work in the IT department people will be pointing the finger at you. Of course, if everything's working fine, don't expect a pat on the back.

We have seen that a lot of companies, if they use monitoring at all, use it for basic indicators like free disc space, bandwidth, CPU usage, etc. But that is to forget all the other components of your system, like OSs, applications, databases, servers... Therefore, here I will show you some key benefits to think why your organization should install a network monitor. For more information check this full article related to a network monitor. I am used to use Pandora FMS, however, there are hundred of network monitoring tools easy to install and configure.

Here are 7 benefits that network monitoring can provide:

  1. A global view of your network, through a single interface, and without needing to go device to device to see what's going on.
  2. Cost savings made from having your infrastructure 100% available.
  3. Catch small issues before they become big problems.
  4. Configure alerts and notifications to go from a reactive model to a proactive one, and get a head start when your tool warns you of incidents.
  5. Get a complete inventory of all your devices, of any type; routers, servers, desktops...
  6. Manage the growth of your system in a more ordered and efficient way.
  7. Apart from a global view, they also give you a segmented view of specific operations, depending on the user. Different users get customized views of the operation, seeing only what they need to see. A procurement manager doesn't need to see the same information as a system administrator.
What do you think about network monitoring? Have we forgotten anything?
