Network monitoring forums - How to's.

By TobeJ ·

I am currently working for a company that has multiple locations and depending on the site can have anything from 50 to 350 network devices running on the internal network. Now in a few instances in the past I have used a few network monitoring tools to try and identify issues or problems that come with slow network slowness.. I eventually found the culprit, but not by using the network monitoring tools exclusively.. I am looking for a good forum that I can join that has discusses Network monitoring tools (Eather real, Wireshark MS NM etc). If someone knows of such a forum, please let me know.

Thanks for your time.

Network Monitoring or Protocol Monitoring?

by Nonapeptide In reply to Network monitoring forums ...

To me, when someone says network monitoring, I think of Nagios, WhatsUp Gold, TheDude, etc.

Protocol analyzing brings to my mind things like Ethereal, MS NM, and even Snort.
I'd suggest hanging out at <a href="">Snort's forums</a>, maybe check out <a href=""></a>, and also <a href="">Tek-Tips has a sniffer forum</a>, although I'm not sure how active or good it is.
My advice: hang out at the development forums or IRC channels for your favorite proto analyzer be it Ethereal, Ettercap, Snort, etc..

Network Monitoring and its uses

by nancywarner123 In reply to Network monitoring forums ...

Hello Toby,

Network Monitoring is one of the best technique to keep monitoring your network 24x7 .

There is lot of tools , lot of service provider for monitoring your network or system . In my point of view tool is not 100 % worthy and even some of the module are not work properly but if you use network monitoring service provided by IT Consultant company you can get the difference of monitoring service . Even your complete data of network get backup means IT Consultant provide you monitoring service, online backup service ,virtualization etc .

And you didn't need to expand your time on monitoring your network or data, take backup ,purchase various tool for different different purposes. They provide you complete service as per your requirement.

I know one of the service provide you can check there : ""
