Best Network Monitoring Software

Network monitoring software provides a baseline and tracks the performance of an overall computer network. These solutions detect problems caused by overuse or issues within the server and network connection. They also measure response time, availability, consistency, reliability, and the overall traffic of a network based on real-time and historical performance data. IT teams can benefit greatly from a network monitoring solution, or even free network monitoring software. If a network crashes or varies from the baseline, the network or IT administrator is alerted. These tools provide data visualization for administrators to increase understanding of the performance metrics. Network monitoring software provides similar functionality to application performance management software, but for an entire network as opposed to a specific web application.

To qualify for inclusion in the Network Monitoring category, a product must:

  • Constantly monitor the performance of an entire computer network
  • Create a baseline for network performance metrics
  • Alert administrators if the network crashes or varies from the baseline
  • Suggest solutions to performance issues when they arise
  • Provide visualizations for network performance data
