I was reading a white paper called "Network Monitoring – Shifting from Fire Fighting to Fire Prevention" and didn't understand what it meant by data point. Can someone explain to me what a data point is? Thank you!

In general, a data point is anything that you can define and measure. Pertaining to networks, you are looking at things like latency or connection speed.
