Remote network monitoring is a process enabling the IT teams to gain visibility of the remote network. It involves monitoring the network proactively to help the network perform seamlessly. These systems monitoring the remote network provide real-time insights of the performance, detects issues promptly and resolves them before they impact the end user. This way, the remote network, though at a distance, performs without any hassle.

What are the benefits of remote network monitoring?

Here are few benefits of remote network monitoring:

  • Remote network monitoring enables efficient network performance, ensures easy data transfer between central and probe set ups.
  • These tools detect potential network issues proactively, well before they impact the IT operations, thereby reducing network downtime.
  • By preventing network disruption and downtime, organizations can save a lot on maintenance and operation.
  • Remote network monitoring software will be able to accommodate growing networks. Hence, they support organizations that have changing business needs.

With so much benefits in place, here are a few deployment options you should know.

Remote Network Monitoring tool Deployment Options

  • You can consider deploying multiple probes on the same LAN to distribute the load across the probes for scalability.
  • On the other hand, this edition lets you monitor remote sites where you can deploy the probes in the remote networks.

The remote network monitor probe-central architecture makes it possible for enterprise monitoring by scaling with your network as you expand to more locations and multiply the resources. A site-wise segmentation de–clutters your network management tasks.

You can distribute the polling engine by adding more probes for enterprise network monitoring. As you can see, scalability is the main focus of this edition.

Let us see a little more on how this design works.

Remote Network Monitoring Software: OpManager

Remote network monitoring - Deployment

Remote Network Monitoring (RMON), the enterprise edition of OpManager network monitoring solution consists of two distinct server components, the central and the probe. As the names suggest, the central server is the component installed in the NOC or the central location from where the administrator can take control of all the distributed resources over the LAN⁄WAN. The probe is installed in the site which it is required to monitor and report the fault and performance to the central server.

  • Remote network management can be achieved with OpManager's remote network monitoring service.The central server is installed at the NOC/datacenter.
  • The probes are deployed in the remote location and are registered with the central server. The probes can be deployed even behind firewalls or proxy servers.
  • The probes discover, map, monitor, and detect faults in the networks that they are configured to monitor and report the findings to the central server.
  • Communication between the probes and central server is XML over HTTP⁄HTTPS, and is secure.
  • The central server collates the data and presents them in a unified console for easy monitoring and management.
  • A web console is available for the probes for the local administrator to access the required information.
  • The centralized console on the NOC side provides a bird’s eye view of the distributed enterprise networks and their performance.
