Network Management Tools
Network management refers to the activities, methods, procedures and tools that pertain to the operation, administration, maintenance and provisioning of networked systems.
- Operation deals with keeping the network (and the services that the network provides) up and running smoothly. It includes monitoring the network to spot problems as soon as possible, ideally before users are affected.
- Administration deals with keeping track of resources in the network and how they are assigned. It includes all the “housekeeping” that is necessary to keep the network under control.
- Maintenance is concerned with performing repairs and upgrades, for example, when equipment must be replaced, when a router needs a patch for an operating system image, when a new switch is added to a network. Maintenance also involves corrective and preventive measures to make the managed network run better, such as adjusting device configuration parameters.
- Provisioning is concerned with configuring resources in the network to support a given service. For example, this might include setting up the network so that a new customer can receive voice service.
Network management tools are mostly used by large corporations to log and examine network traffic, proxies and other information going through the network. This software can analyze traffic without installing any software on your computer, because it monitors the traffic which goes through the central servers of the network.
