Network Baseline Determination
The AshureNettm Network Baseline Determination
is a one-month study of network activity. RMON probes collect
information on network operations, performance, and trends
for one month to ensure capture of the network peaks and valleys
resulting from the business cycle. The Baseline provides a
good picture of the network operations when stable and healthy.
This picture can be used for comparison to future measurements
when network problems arise. The AshureNettm Network
Baseline Report contains graphs and tables of network operating
parameters and trends including: network utilization, protocol
traffic profile and distribution, errors, and frame distribution.
- An explanation of the recorded network statistics
- A discussion of standard statistic thresholds
- Recommendations for immediate and future actions to maximize network performance and reliability.
The study allows meaningful threshold alarm calibration and direction for setting RMON alerts. Establishment of minimum and maximum performance characteristics allows proactive management and diagnostics of network troubles before they impact network performance. If the network support staff does not have the necessary resources to maintain a pro-active network management platform, Remote Monitoring of their network provides a solution to ensure network stability.
