Network Monitoring

The term network monitoring describes the use of a system that constantly monitors a computer network for slow or failing components and that notifies the network administrator (via email, pager or other alarms) in case of outages. While an intrusion detection system monitors a network for threats from the outside, a network monitoring system monitors the network for problems caused by overloaded and/or crashed servers, network connections or other devices.

For example, to determine the status of a webserver, monitoring software may periodically send an HTTP request to fetch a page. For email servers, a test message might be sent through SMTP and retrieved by IMAP or POP3.

sometime it shows failure such as when a connection cannot be established, it times-out, or the document or message cannot be retrieved – usually produce an action from the monitoring system. These actions vary — an alarm may be sent (via SMS, email, etc.) to the residentsysadmin, automatic failover systems may be activated to remove the troubled server from duty until it can be repaired.

Server Monitoring

Importance

Server monitoring is one of the base components of Server Management and due to the critical nature of servers, it is required that someone constantly monitors the status of the managed servers.The Server Monitor application can be used to monitor servers over a network or the Internet.The system administrator starts by adding new servers that should be monitored to the application. Required information are a unique name, the server address and the monitoring type.Available monitoring types areTCP / IP, Ping or Services.A TCP / IP monitoring for example requires a port that can be added in the same interface.

Network Management

Purpose of network management

  1. It manages cooperative behavior among devices, but there are relatively few products that actually provide that capability. Most equipment vendor NMS products work only with their own devices, and few products offer complete multi-vendor support.
  2. It ensures that a range of networks and its devices can be stable, reliable and efficient manner, so that all network resources are in good working condition, fulfills the user’s expected demand.
  3. It maintains networked systems availability or improve their performance.
  4. It help users efficiently and effectively use their diverse telecommunication resources so as to receive maximum service benefits and to help providers use their resources efficiently so as to enhance profitability.

Security Monitoring

How Security Monitoring works

Security monitoring is the single most important aspect of corporate and Internet technology.This type of close watching acts much like keeping the worst from happening.It is just like watching the network’s traffic to prevent the “hostile takeover” of computer and company assets such as servers and workstations.

This process is similar to the body’s immune system since they both involve watching and analyzing data traffic, much like white blood cells in the body looking for foreign substances and destroying them before they can do any damage.

In this Monitoring the interconnection of computers is the central operation; all data moving in or out through a network is watched for patterns that are recognized as threats.

Viruses, Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) attacks, and password hacks are all forms of threats that are watched.

In this Engineers can build complex pattern recognition algorithms to allow the system to flag suspicious activity into the systems.

Once an activity is flagged, the specialists will investigate the traffic. Determining where it comes from and where it is going. If one does in fact exists, then there are methods of response used that can limit the damage and stop the attacker.

Security monitoring is also one of the most exciting aspects of modern network technology and is often portrayed as a kind of Science Fiction battle.

Firewall Monitoring

As multinationals, as well as large corporations, access data from remote locations on daily basis Firewall Monitoring and VPN Routing is very essential rather important.

In Brief..

A firewall is a part of a computer system or network that is designed to block unauthorized access while permitting authorized communications. It is a device or set of devices that is configured to permit or deny network transmissions based upon a set of rules and other criteria.

Firewalls can be implemented in either hardware or software, or a combination of both. These are frequently used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet, especially intranet. All messages entering or leaving the intranet pass through the firewall, which inspects each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.

As one can see how this firewall can help secure systems via  the below diagram…

Asset Management

It’s not a software or an application. It is a collaborative program, designed by key stakeholders within an organization. It has defined processes, objectives, deliverables, and creates a mindset throughout the organization. It is a discipline, in fact, a well orchestrated asset management program can become the conscience of the company.

Every organization has assets, and it is our duty what we do to make a difference to the bottom line with those assets. Such things as vehicles, machinery and equipment, facilities, IT equipment including telephony and yes even people.

The constant need to maximize performance, produce more with less down time, provide optimal service to your customers and reduce overall operating costs, Asset Management becomes a way of doing business.

According to IBM:

Asset Management solutions enable asset intensive organizations to “do more with less” by increasing labor utilization 10%, reducing unplanned maintenance by 50% and inventory by 30% over the lifecycle of assets. It helps to mitigate license cost and reduce compliance risk.
