Hi, I’ve been googling and from what I came up with network monitoring is a piece of software or hardware that is used to identify problems on the network. Is there usually a person that sits and monitors all day or is it a system that usually sends alert to the network peoples cellphone or something. Somehow, I find it hard to believe that someone would just get paid to sit at a desk all day and look at a screen. I’m trying to learn about these things so I can better understand so I can one day get a job that might be involved in doing things like that. I’m sure there are many different software packages that will manage such as task. I believe I read about one called Solaris winds. The problem about having so many is that it ends up being like antivirus programs. Lots of them out there but you hardly see them in an enterprise corporate setting. I would much rather get familiar with something that’s usually used so my chance of getting work is greater. I’d be willing to take classes or maybe buy a trial if I knew what to choose. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
