By using the network performance monitoring and diagnostics (NPMD) tool you are preventing a lot of problems, not only this but also you are keeping the network performance healthy and operating as visibility it should be. Without using the NPMD tool you will be facing a lot of problems and you need to pay for fixing these problems, reactive and fire fighting basis. So, to avoid all of that you need to use the NPMD tool. Below are many reasons why you need to use the NPMD tool.
With network monitoring you have the ability to know which device has the problem. So, you don’t waste your time in finding out where exactly the problem comes from. Do not get it wrong, modern NPMD will cover everything in the modern IT infrastructure, not just network devices, but also server, application, services.
Know what is happening
Network monitoring software keeps you up to date on the operation and connectivity of network’s devices and resources. If you don’t use network monitoring software, you have to manually check for the status, and that takes time to notice among the big number of devices if there is a device that is down. It helps you to know exactly your network visibility, uptime, for all the components and elements you want to measure and track.
Keep your security software operate
When you adapt a software for security, do not expect that it’s enough. You have to monitor the network to ensure that the security software is running as it has to and is up all the time. Using modern NPMD will help to know exactly what you have in your hardware and software inventory, as well as monitoring for the change attempt for the network device configuration and by who, as well as provide a snapshot of the baseline configuration to know exactly for the change attempt.
Ensure your customers
Before the user knows about the problem and calls you, you have to be aware of all the network problems and fix them as fast as possible, in a proactive manner. So, without network monitoring software you will be doing this manually which will take a long time and still not all the problems are discovered. Passive, reactive and fire fighting operation model is not enough to please any customer, whether it is an external or internal customer, you need to be proactive to inform them of the specific device or application or service with early warning, downtime notification and up time notification in the automated manner.
Save your money
By avoiding network problems or discovering them before they cause harm you will be saving money because you don’t have to pay to fix a problem. In the modern world, any form of unplanned downtime will cause business productivity and transaction delay (or loss, if the end user buys it from another online store).
Check your network status from anywhere
Wherever you are, you have the ability to check the network status by just logging in to the web interface. All you need is the internet. Modern NPMD provides secure remote access from anyplace, anywhere so you can continue to remain productive.
In conclusion, there are many reasons for why to use the NPMD tool. Some of them are: discovering problems, knowing what is happening, keeping your security software operating, ensuring your customers, saving your money, and checking your network status from anywhere.
