What is Network Monitoring?

Network Monitoring | Network Performance Monitoring (9)

Network monitoring is a critical IT process that tracks network components and endpoints and provides fault, performance, and traffic monitoring. It involves monitoring critical network issues, providing fault detection, and health monitoring of various network elements from the device level to the protocol and interface levels.

Network monitoring systems include tools that track network operations. It is critical to monitor traffic, bandwidth utilization, and other metrics using performance counters. Further, examining the health and performance of network interfaces for their faults helps to manage various network resources, both on-site and remote. Network monitoring tools help IT admins reduce the meantime to repair (MTTR) to solve real-time network performance issues with instant alerting and data in the form of tables, charts, graphs, dashboards, and reports.

Why are network monitoring tools important?

Businesses rely on networks, whether they're on-site or remote. Network monitoring tools are crucial to:

  • Ensure continuous network uptime with good health for uninterrupted business operations.
  • Provide insights on the performance of every network device and interface, along with their hierarchy.
  • Analyze the performance at the device and interface levels using performance metrics.
  • Identify threats well in advance.
  • Generate alerts and avert downtimes.

Site24x7 is a multi-vendor supporting, cloud-based, and scalable real-time network monitoring solution that monitors your network 24x7 and helps reduce network outages. Its high availability mechanisms help to monitor your network without any interruptions.

Key features of Site24x7 network monitoring tool


Automatically discover all the devices present within a provided IP range, or a whole network (LAN or WAN) using SNMP.

Multi-vendor Support

Over 450 vendors like Cisco, HP, Canon, Juniper, D-Link, and Dell are supported, and you can monitor anything more by just entering the sysOID.

Device Templates

There are over 10000 device templates with custom options that offer predefined attributes, making the configuration easy and simple.

Network Mapping

Obtain complete visibility using maps. Automate discovery and mapping with Layer 2 maps and create your network schema using topology maps.

Health Dashboard

View top devices based on response time and packet loss; and top interfaces based on traffic, bandwidth utilization, errors, and discards.

Configure network devices to send SNMP traps to Site24x7, and receive processed alert messages for any trap defined in your SNMP MIB.

Sensor Monitoring

Site24x7 also supports SNMP-based sensor monitoring using which you can monitor attributes that are tracked by sensors by simply creating custom device templates.

Support for Custom MIBs

In addition to the default MIBs provided, you can upload custom MIBs from your system and use them to add custom performance counters of your choice.

VoIP Monitoring

Assess the quality of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services throughout the call path by tracking different metrics including jitter, latency, and packet loss.

Hear it from our customer

I wanted to give a shout-out to Site24x7; we love them; they are great. We've got clients who need to access information in the UK, the US, anywhere in North America, Asia, or Europe. We've got points that we can leverage from Site24x7, and we can test latency between countries and continents, and it's just great. We love those guys. Great service, great support, and I wouldn't look anywhere else.

How does the Site24x7 network monitoring tool work?

Site24x7 Network Monitoring is an agentless, Software as a Service (SaaS) network monitoring system that collects data from your network using an On-Premise Poller. This helps monitor both your internal and external networks. The Site24x7 network monitoring tool is SNMP based. You can either specify an IP range or use Classless Inter-Domain Routing (CIDR) to discover the devices in your network. You can mention discovery rules and device and interface filters which help to fine-tune the discovery. Once added, the On-Premise Poller starts to fetch data like traffic, bandwidth, packets, error, discards, and other performance data from your devices.

You can configure threshold limits for all the key performance metrics at the device and interface level so that you can take corrective measures on any breach, and keep the network performance under control using our cloud network monitoring solution.
