Monitoring is an important concept in network management as it helps network operators determine the behavior and status of a network. Traffic engineering, service quality, and the detection of anomalies also depend on decision-making and monitoring.
Network monitoring is aimed at supporting proper management operations. Monitoring solutions are the foundation of further management, such as traffic monitoring and network reliability.
SolarWinds is a worldwide leader in providing powerful and affordable software for IT management. Its products serve many organizations around the world, regardless of the type, size or complexity of the IT infrastructure.
It also gives companies the power to monitor and manage the performance of their IT environments, on-site, in the cloud or hybrid models.
The SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor can be installed easily and ready in no time. The tool automatically discovers and deploys network devices within an hour. The approach to monitoring a whole network makes it one of the easiest and intuitive user interfaces to use.
The company has refreshed its network management offerings by adding monitoring systems. The new monitoring addition supports the ACI initiative of Cisco and has unique capabilities for detecting anomalies.
Network management refresh helps with multi-vendor network monitoring; deeper visibility of network insights; smart maps; NetPath and PerfStack for easy troubleshooting; smarter scalability for large environments; and advanced alerting.
Software-defined networking (SDN) is getting more popular for network delivery and management. An application for SDN monitoring is primarily network management and monitoring tool working with the network operating system and a set of APIs.
These APIs are integrated into each node, device, and network medium throughout the network and help to extract and deliver network monitoring data to SDN application monitoring records and analyze various network changes to evaluate the overall network operation.
Among the new features, the company has focused on the new monitoring support for Cisco ACI environments, the networking giant adopting SDN, and other game-changing network modernization technologies. With this new support, organizations can monitor logical and physical networks in Cisco ACI facilities using a single tool to track APIC tenants and leaves’ health scores.
