What is network monitoring?

Network monitoring provides the real-time information needed to determine the overall performance of a computer network. Network monitoring is the process of discovering, mapping, and measuring the data and performance within a computer network.The LogicMonitor platform provides solutions for network monitoring by identifying where network traffic originates, autodiscovering network devices, ingesting network syslog data to detect anomalies and anticipating problems.

Comprehensive visibility into your entire network

Auto-discover network devices

2000+ out-of-the-box integrations for top brands like Cisco, Juniper, Meraki and more allows for autodiscovery of any device on any network.

Visualize your network

Discover and map relationships between critical infrastructure resources. Dynamic auto-generated topology maps allow you to contextualize network traffic and alerts in real-time.

Troubleshoot network issues faster

End-to-end visibility with unified network logs and metrics and intelligent alerting thresholds solves network issues at lightning speed. Learn more

Any device. Any network.

The LogicMonitor platform provides comprehensive monitoring for every kind of modern enterprise network so you can eliminate visibility gaps and break down silos.

  • Monitoring via SNMP, API, jFlow, NetFlow, sFlow, WMI, NBAR2, and/or IPFIX
  • Monitoring for firewalls, routers, switches, wireless devices, load balancers, and more
  • Support for SD-WAN and cloud-based networks
  • Network topology mapping, root cause analysis, and intelligent alerting

Network monitoring that deploys in minutes at any scale

LogicMonitor utilizes a lightweight, agentless collector that automatically discovers everything you need to know about your network.

Get the coverage you need for the most complex networks – whether resources are on-premises, spread across multiple data centers, or in the cloud.

  • Instantly discover and monitor all network devices, including cloud SD-WAN, in a single platform with lightning-fast implementation in dynamic environments
  • Enable Network traffic monitoring on every network device to visualize your entire network infrastructure, from bandwidth allocation down to packet loss, and everything in between
  • Ingest network syslog data in minutes for immediate context without requiring proprietary querying capabilities
  • End-to-end visibility in a single platform for visibility into your network and dependencies across IT environment alongside intelligent alerting thresholds

Improve network health and optimize performance

When problems arise, resolve them faster than ever before with LogicMonitor’s suite of troubleshooting capabilities. Unified network logs and metrics quickly pinpoint the root cause of network availability and performance issues.

LogicMonitor’s dashboards, topology mapping, log-based anomaly detection, and forecasting, elevate visibility into networks to minimize service issues and performance bottlenecks.

With auto-generated topology mapping, LogicMonitor allows you to discover and map relationships between critical infrastructure resources. Drill down further and generate a topology map based on an alert to streamline your troubleshooting workflow and quickly discover the root cause of performance-impacting issues.

Full network visibility into the metrics that matter

Metrics alone do not provide meaningful insights into network health and performance. Traditional network monitoring tools fail to provide full visibility into the connectivity of network devices in modern environments and don’t integrate access to critical network log data to provide context into the events needed for troubleshooting. With LogicMonitor:

  • See the performance of your network devices within your entire IT ecosystem
  • Visualize network traffic latency alongside logs to confirm high-performance availability
  • Understand the impact of network service issues to reduce risk and escalate appropriately to triage
  • Explore relationships between critical infrastructure resources and your network devices with auto-generated topology mapping
  • Identify traffic origination, ensure optimal performance with real-time metrics and logs, and keep a pulse of network health with custom dashboards

The tool for strategic Managed Services partners

SolarWinds had the big breach just as we left it. We loved how powerful it was, and how customizable - however, it is an ON-Prem tool, and as a growing MSP, that dynamic didn't and couldn't scale.
