Network availability and network performance are two critical parameters that determine the successful utilization of any network – be it a LAN, MAN or WAN network. Disruptions in the network affect business productivity adversely and can bring regular operations to a standstill. Network monitoring from Altnix provides pro-active information about network performance bottlenecks and source of network disruption. Network monitoring improves business operations and productivity.
Benefits of Network Monitoring
|Network Availability: Network monitoring is capable of monitoring the availability status of all the links in the network as well the devices themselves that are part of the network. Hence network monitoring provides information on entire network availability.|
|Performance Analysis : Network monitoring identifies any performance bottlenecks in the network as well as bandwidth utilization on the devices and the entire network. Such analysis is useful in optimizing the network to meet the business needs.|
|Availability and Uptime Guarantee: Proactive network monitoring improves the remediation and resolution for any network related issues. You are able to accurately identify the source of the problem and then take corrective actions quickly. Hence the availability of the network improves dramatically.|
Network Monitoring Solution
Altnix provides end to end network monitoring solutions including routers, switches, firewall devices, VPN devices, gateways, servers and storage devices. Network monitoring from Altnix is available as on-premise monitoring implementation as well as in the form of Monitoring as a Service (MaaS) offering.
Altnix can monitor industry standard routers such as Cisco, Juniper, HP and Avaya. Router monitoring is typically based on SNMP protocol and can provide information around port availability, port status and packet transfer information. All types of routers can be monitored using this protocol. In addition, performance related metrics such as processor (CPU) usage, memory (RAM) usage for the routers can be monitored. Such performance monitoring provides information on why a particular router is running slow.
Altnix can monitor industry standard switches such as Cisco, Juniper, HP, Hauwei, ZTE, and Avaya. Switch monitoring is based on SNMP protocol and can provide information around port availability, port status and packet transfer information. All types of switches can be monitored using this protocol. In addition, performance related metrics such as processor (CPU) usage, memory (RAM) usage for the switch can be monitored.
LAN and WAN Monitoring
Altnix can monitor entire LAN or WAN infrastructure for organizations. LAN and WAN monitoring provides information about network connection problems, LAN or WAN segment status, network outages, sources of network issues and reports on network performance. Complete monitoring of LAN and WAN provides faster detection and resolution of network issues and network outages.
Bandwidth monitoring is a critical component of network monitoring for any network. Altnix can monitor the bandwidth for entire networks including bandwidth monitoring for individual routers and switches. Bandwidth utilization reports can be created that gives information at a port level or at a particular IP address level. Bandwidth monitoring gives insights about inbound and outbound traffic within the network.
SNMP Trap Integration
Most network failures generate SNMP events that need to be trapped and integrated into the monitoring tool. Altnix monitoring solutions provide SNMP trap integration for network devices such as routers, switches and firewall devices. SNMP Trap integration improves uptime and availability of network devices.
