Network monitoring is the practice of monitoring and analyzing network traffic, devices, and systems to ensure performance and security. It involves the collection and analysis of data from network devices like routers, switches, servers, and applications.
Network monitoring tools collect data on network traffic, bandwidth utilization, errors, and other metrics to identify and troubleshoot problems. IT teams can proactively detect and resolve issues before they impact end users.
This helps to improve network performance, increase uptime, and reduce downtime.
