When a user or your boss informs you about a network problem, the first thing that comes to mind is, “Could I have prevented it?”.
Naturally, these unexpected issues could be prevented if you monitor the network’s relevant resources, services, and other performance aspects.
By monitoring your network, you can easily detect any disturbing signs of the problem before they occur and make a mess.
If you still need to start monitoring your network, it is better sooner than later! Network problems are always an opportunity to learn from, and by observing its condition, you can avoid future implications.
It is necessary to figure out which specific symptoms to track. These could range from device errors to temporary spikes.
A good network monitoring software should notify you not only about the problems but also about the system’s warning symptoms and errors. Prevent issues from escalation simply by getting alerts on time.
It is always better to catch network problems sooner than react when they suddenly come, so adopting this approach guarantees a healthy network flow.
