The Evolving Idea of Network Performance Management

Network performance management (NPM) is a class of technologies that supports multiple enterprise network engineering and operations use cases by collecting and analyzing a range of network data, including infrastructure metrics, network flows, packets and packet metadata, logs, synthetic traffic, and network test data. These solutions typically offer defined workflows, dashboards, reports, alerts, and network maps and visualizations that support critical network management use cases. Primarily, IT organizations use NPM solutions to support three critical functions:

  1. Operational monitoring of network infrastructure and network traffic
  2. Network diagnostics and troubleshooting
  3. Capacity planning
