In a recent examination of different network monitoring solutions, packet monitoring matrix switches, designed to allow for many taps to be aggregated and to connect to all the different monitoring systems that may be in place, was explored. As reported in an article on TMC Net, more organizations are expected to implement more network monitoring switches and solutions as time goes on. Many organizations have a number of systems that need to be observed to assure traffic flows across the network and packet switches continue not only to be popular, but a key tool for success.
“Networking monitoring has become a key topic in nearly every industry as so much is now driven by the network that business tends to cease in functioning if something with the network goes wrong. As a result, there is a significant amount of pressure placed on the IT department to ensure they can safely conduct network monitoring no matter where they are and without interfering with the current system or applications in place.”
