T ypes of Network Monitoring

Network monitoring services are essential for maintaining your organization's overall health and computer networks. Various types of network monitoring serve distinct purposes to ensure optimal functionality. Learn more about them below, or reach out to our team of network monitoring professionals for expert guidance.

Performance Monitoring

Performance monitoring involves observing and analyzing metrics to evaluate the efficiency and effectiveness of a system or network. Various metrics are monitored to gain insights into network performance. Latency assesses the time taken for a packet to travel from its source to its destination, while throughput measures the data transferred within a specific timeframe. Additionally, packet loss quantifies the percentage of lost data packets, providing crucial indicators of network health and functionality.

Availability Monitoring

Availability monitoring is essential for verifying the accessibility and functionality of a system or network. Common techniques include ping tests, which assess network reachability, and HTTP checks to confirm web server availability. Additionally, service uptime monitoring tracks the continuous operation of critical services. Ping tests involve sending a network packet to a target device and measuring the round-trip time, while HTTP checks assess the ability to receive HTTP responses. These practices ensure easy access to vital resources for your organization's operation.

Traffic Monitoring

Traffic monitoring involves the meticulous observation and analysis of data flows within a network, offering valuable insights into network performance. It aids in capacity planning, network optimization, and the identification of unusual or suspicious activities. By examining metrics such as bandwidth usage, packet counts, and application-specific data, organizations can anticipate future resource requirements, crucial for effective capacity planning. Additionally, suspicious patterns can be detected early, enhancing network security and reliability.

Security Monitoring

Security monitoring is about the careful observation and analysis of a system's activities to identify and respond to potential threats effectively. By monitoring network traffic, system logs, and user behavior for abnormal patterns, threats can be detected promptly. Real-time alerts enable swift and efficient action to mitigate and contain security breaches. Moreover, security monitoring aids in compliance efforts by ensuring organizations adhere to rules and policies, maintaining a secure and compliant operational environment.

Network Monitoring Services vs. Tools

Network monitoring services and standalone tools share the common goal of overseeing network performance but differ significantly in scope and approach. Standalone tools typically manifest as software solutions that users install and manage independently, offering a do-it-yourself approach. Conversely, companies often entrust network monitoring services to dedicated providers like Technical Support International, which manage the entire monitoring process by leveraging their expertise and infrastructure. Professional network monitoring services offer numerous benefits, including scalability to adapt to changing network sizes and complexities, real-time alerts, deep analysis, and comprehensive reporting, providing a holistic view of network health.
