Hi folks! So more often than not, it can be quite difficult for a network administrator to track down a potential problem on their network. When running a large network with hundreds or thousands of ports, it’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
Well if you have a network monitoring system (an mms), then you can easily have your devices report back to you on what’s going on in your network at a glance. There are many products out there available for this and most of them will let you try out their products for free.
The key thing is to ensure you purchase proper network equipment that supports netflow or sflow so you can get proper reporting on what’s happening in your network.
