The prevalent challenge faced by any organization would be in meeting their goals or their budgets, without a heavy reliance on networked services and applications. Unfortunately, this widespread reliance on networking also means that the risks of network failures, outages or substandard performance can result in critical and sometimes irreparable damage to business and brand reputation.
These escalating risks need to be countered by the deployment of a comprehensive Network-Monitoring System that proactively assures availability and performance.
If you have an idea of implementing a comprehensive network monitoring strategy, then that is the only way to guarantee the required levels of uptime needed to support today's networked applications. In that perspective, a network monitoring function must be designed with the following primary goals:
IT360 is an integrated IT management solution which also does network monitoring to give you a real-time visibility into entire IT infrastructure and their interdependencies. The Network monitoring module of IT360 lets you monitor and receive alerts on all the network happenings you care about most! It scans your network for failures or irregularities before users report. IT360 provides instant notification of any problem by actions such as email, sms, trap, etc. and can take a number of remedial actions automatically.
IT360 guides you in monitoring the availability and performance of the various network devices such as Routers and Switches. It offers an end-to-end monitoring platform that offers advanced fault and performance management across WAN, VoIP services, network devices, and other IT infrastructure such as printers, UPS etc. It also enables automatic discovery of the network devices. With IT360, your network monitoring task is made easy by the extensive list of devices and interface templates containing device configurations.
IT360's Device Snapshot view shows various metrics such as the health, availability, response time, etc., of its network resources, at a glance. The Device Snapshot page can be viewed under the Networks tab, by clicking any of the individual devices under Device Summary, from the Network Overview page. Refer the below figure:
Now, clicking the link of any of the network devices under Device Summary, the Device Snapshot page of that device will be shown (as in the below figure). It displays the following information:
