  • 1. How To Monitor Your Computer Network With A Network Monitoring ToolThese days, we all know that network security is more important than ever before. This is why havingthe right network monitoring tool is essential. This is a system that is set up with software that monitorsyour network and serves to watch over the other machines connected to the network, as well as each ofthe users and what they are doing. When doing network monitoring, the tool you choose is going to belooking for the way your network is using power provided to it, scan for malware and virus infections,servers that are crashing and a number of other things that can spell disaster for your network.Generally speaking, a proper network monitoring tool will take on the job of sending what is called aping to each of the systems on the network. This ping is like touching base with a computer that needsto respond quickly to the monitoring system. If it fails this, then the network monitoring softwareregisters that there is a problem and will report this anomaly to the network administrator. This can bedone via a text message, an email or other options that bring a trained expert onto the scene.When it comes to network monitoring tool you do have another option, though. Certain types ofsoftware take a wider approach by looking at the overall usage of the network so that when somethingthat differs radically from the norm is seen, it can be reported. Options do include not just networkmonitoring software packages that focus exclusively on this function, but those which are built into alarger package as part of a suite of network tools. Which one you choose depends on your needs.There are a number of different tools meant do the job of acting as a network monitor for everyoperating system made today. Each package will have a slightly different approach, be easier or moredifficult to use and have varying price tags. Primarily, most network administrators are going to want tochoose a tool for the role of the network monitor that is going to be best suited to the type of networkthey are running.When choosing any of these packages, what will matter most is that you evaluate how they work withyour most prevalent needs. Sensitive data will need a much more robust approach to protection, butmost systems need the basics along with security software to help prevent intrusions.
