The program should collect the inbound and outbound network traffic data on
computers. With such a program you can easily find out which computer in your
network uses up the available bandwidth.
What other benefits will we get when we use a bandwidth monitoring program?
We can identify a guilty employee, who uses the company resources for
personal affairs, or find computers infected by a virus which generates a lot
of network traffic.
When the bandwidth monitor constantly collects the statistics about the
inbound and outbound traffic which passes through each networked computer, it
can display the dynamic of speed transfer changes in the real-time on graphs
and tables. When the program monitors your network traffic usage 24 hours a
day, it will be able to detect network failures and network bandwidth
problems. The program can notify you in time about the bandwidth p... (more)
Network monitoring is the most important part of the system administrator's
or IT manager's work. The larger the company is, the more employees work
there, the more clients are served by this organization, the more vital the
server monitoring process is. It is worth mentioning that nowadays there are
a lot of companies with rather small and simple networks where servers are
also used and need to be monitored.
The server equipment is to operate round the clock 7 days in a week all the
year. It is not recommended to stop the server operation because this can
lead to a company's wo... (more)
Any modern company needs systematization, detailed analysis, and control of
the network traffic that is transmitted through the company's computers,
servers, and other devices. This process is called the traffic and bandwidth
monitoring. The importance of the constant traffic monitoring is determined
by a lot of reasons.
First of all, it is essential for companies which have to limit the traffic
volume utilized by users per day, week, month if, for instance, the
connection to the Internet is limited. A bandwidth monitoring program allows
the system administrator not only to cont... (more)
Network's stability depends on its architecture and the elements that the
network consists of. That is why the system administrator needs to know its
topology. The network map in front of his eyes helps the IT manager to view
where all the network devices are located. In this case, he gets an
opportunity to react on occurred failures more quickly.
There are three solutions for the problem:
1. Drawing the network map manually. This process includes the wire tracking
in order to discover the topology, and the map drawing on paper or using the
computer. This method is free, but very... (more)
Above all, the network inventory allows optimizing the hardware and software
expenses that can be rather high. For instance, software licenses can be
duplicated by users (this is out of the Copyright Low), some license keys can
be expired and the IT manager can forget to renew them. Sometimes, vice
versa, expensive software might be never used by employees. Moreover, the
information on the antvirus software updates can help to evaluate the network
protection. The inventory database analysis allows the system administrator
to detect the unlicensed software installation on users' c... (more)
