Best Practice of ManageEngine IT360

Monitoring active networks, applications, and bandwidth consumed by the devices is a must to gain accurate and real-time visibility of the health of your network. However frequent monitoring can become a huge strain on your network resources as it generates a lot of traffic on the network, especially in large networks.

We recommend monitoring only the critical devices and applications on the network. This is a best practice adopted by the network administrators worldwide.

Frequently Montior the devices, applications and interfaces that are critical, say every 5 minutes once. Devices, applications and interfaces that are not considerd critical or has inferior roles to play, monitor them less frequently, say 20 to 30 minutes once.
