Data and data analysis is the key to understanding the health and security of network-based servers and websites. Most companies today work in an IT-based network-style system that can perform multiple complex tasks simultaneously with great efficiency for a variety of departments. Often, these networks require regular updates, whether they are standard upgrades or security patches to continue to keep the system healthy and secure. Performance monitoring tools can provide that key data to those charged with keeping those systems online and performing properly.
Performance monitoring tools provide the coordination of documentation that goes on throughout the entire network. The data from performance monitoring tools can provide important insight to a system's coordination and health, especially when an upgrade or change occurs, whether planned or performed on an emergency basis. This information can help ensure everything continues to run smoothly. If there is a hiccup in the system, the data from the performance monitoring tools can be identified and adjustments can be made before the hiccup becomes a major issue.
Additionally, the information gained from performance monitoring tools can allow for analysis of specifics related to network traffic and resource utilization, quite possibly the two more important bits of information for an information technology professional when it comes to the health of the network they are charged to keep online. This information can help identify peak activity times and ensure the appropriate resources are available. Without the data gained from performance monitoring tools, chances are the network will not run at its optimum. As a result, issues that could've been identified early in their existence will go unmissed and potentially result in a catastrophic failure, costing both time and money.
The utilization of performance monitoring tools should be part of every companies initial site architecture and best practices for ongoing maintenance to the entire company's network. These tools will help ensure server uptime, responsiveness and resource utilization are within healthy levels as well as identify potential issues related to server maintenance and time lags, avoiding wasted time waiting for the network to respond.
