Businesses place a lot of trust in the reliability of their IT infrastructure to provide customers with seamless connectivity – 24*7. Take the example of an online store, an hour’s downtime would mean huge business losses! Large enterprises expect their network infrastructures to work flawlessly without outages or slowdowns. Network slowdowns greatly reduce the productivity of employees and hence negatively impact the overall functioning of the business.
IT teams hence need to be equipped with the right tools to locate potential bottlenecks and take corrective actions before minor fallacies turn into major catastrophes. Taking proactive and preventive actions can save businesses from suffering huge losses due to network unavailability. The last thing an IT team would want is to react and try to fix something after a lot has been damaged.
Preemptive network monitoring is the answer to finding and fixing issues in your network proactively before users and businesses are impacted.
With unified network monitoring, you can locate specific network congestions, configuration changes, server systems, virtual servers and other network devices. Without the right monitoring tools, your IT teams get bogged down with manually analyzing, troubleshooting and correlating data to pin point and fix problems after they have already hit the network.
Here’s how you can work out a perfect monitoring solution for your business:
You get a comprehensive view of your network
To be able to identify issues before they impact your business, you need a comprehensive monitoring solution that gives you detailed statistics in real time. You can stay ahead of potential problems and tackle them before they cause any harm to your network infrastructure. Setting thresholds and configuring alerts and notifications for threshold breaches enables you to take preemptive action and create strategies to prevent such incidents in future.
Empowers you to perform real time analysis of problems and performance issues
Gathering data that goes beyond mere up and down states of network devices enables you to perform a real time analysis of the performance issues of your network. This can also help reduce the tide of calls to your IT support team.
Helps you limit the impact of network performance on businesses
Configuring alerts and notifications that warn you about heavier than normal traffic conditions on your network, unusually high bandwidth consumption or under-performing servers, applications or databases can help you take action and limit its impact on end users and businesses as a whole.
Helps you eliminate gaps in network visibility
The lack of a ‘complete view’ of your network on a single console increases the time to isolate and fix potential network issues. In order to quickly find and fix issues, you need to eliminate these gaps in network visibility by implementing a monitoring solution that can pin point your ‘problem areas’ on a dashboard or by plotting it on a map.
With planning ahead of time, you can implement a network monitoring solution that can proactively help you locate and fix potential issues ultimately minimizing the impact on the overall business.
