What is network performance management?
Network performance management is the collective technique that enables, manages and ensures optimal performance levels of a computer network. Network performance management generally requires that the performance and quality of service level of every network device and component be routinely monitored.
Network performance management typically uses performance metrics from across the network at a granular level. It checks the router's performance to measure the performance for each port.
Network performance monitoring processes help identify performance bottlenecks, while network performance management ensures that problems are alleviated and the network is brought back to the required performance level. In addition to internal metrics, Network Performance Management reviews, analyzes, manages, and manages performance from a user perspective.
The most important factors in network performance management include:
- network delays
- packet loss
- packet transmission
- error rate
