Network Performance Monitoring

Definition - What does Network Performance Monitoring mean?

Network performance monitoring is a routine process to evaluate, analyze, report and track on the performance of a computer network.

It enables network administrators and managers to keep track of the overall performance and quality of network service delivery of the underlying network.

Techopedia explains Network Performance Monitoring

Network performance monitoring primarily enables routinely checking and optimizing the network for performance. Typically, it is done through network performance monitoring software, network monitoring or management software that provides statistical insight and metrics into network performance. Some of the metric measures within performance monitoring include:

  • Network availability and response time
  • Network download and upload speeds
  • Network delays

Once these metrics reach or are about to reach their minimum or maximum threshold, network administrators and managers are informed about it so they can take preventive or meditative measures to ensure the network remains on or above required performance levels.
