Performance-Based Network Management Keeps Organizations Functioning at Optimum
Published 2006, Posted October 2006
IT organizations have spent billions of dollars implementing fault management tools and processes to maximize network availability. While availability management is critical, infrastructure reliability has improved to the point at which 99.9% availability is not uncommon. Given these improvements in device availability, companies are focusing more attention on performance management. By measuring how networked applications perform under normal circumstances, understanding how performance is impacted by infrastructure and application changes, and isolating the sources of above-normal latency, IT organizations can ensure problems are resolved quickly, mitigate risk, and take measured steps to optimize application performance. In this whitepaper, you will learn why this shift is taking place now and how to use a new Performance First model that will enable you to manage your network for application performance.
