Monitoring your network transportation from time to time is important in order to know that your network equipment is functioning properly, that your machines are only accessed by authorized IP addresses and that there’s no suspicious data transfer to undesirable destinations or unnecessary data transfer within your network.
Usually users and managers only check the network performance when they notice slowness in upload and download processes and perform thorough analysis only when they have a strong suspicion of an intrusion. Avoiding regularly monitoring the network transportation might be harmful for your organization, therefore you need a tool to regularly monitor your network and allow you to view all the relevant information about what’s happening in your network.
AimBetter enables you to easily analyze your network performance and transportation in real time and for past issues, as it saves logs of your systems’ data for as long as you set.
In AimBetter, the Network section of OS Tools is divided to 4 subsections: TCP, Interface, IP and UDP.
The Network section of the OS Tools is a complementary to the Network section of the performance screen as it gives you detailed information about the inbound and outbound traffic in your network, TCP statistics, Network interface metrics, IP metrics and UDP metrics.
The TCP subsection presents the following information for TCP: TCP outbound traffic, TCP inbound traffic, TCP version 4 metrics and TCP version 6 metrics.
The interface subsection presents the following information for the network interface counters: Counter name, Instance name, Mean value, Minimum value and Maximum value. All values are for the most recent round minute.
The IP subsection presents the following information for IP counters: Counter name, Mean value, Minimum value and Maximum value. All values are for the most recent round minute.
The UDP subsection presents the following information for UDP counters: Counter name, Mean value, Minimum value and Maximum value. All values are for the most recent round minute.
As shown above, the following metrics are monitored: Connection failures, connections active, connections established, connections passive, connections reset, segments received/second, segments retransmitted/second, segments sent/second, total segments/second, bytes received/second, bytes sent/second, total bytes/second, current bandwidth, offloaded connections, output queue length, packets outbound discarded, packets outbound errors, packets/second, offloaded connections, output queue length, datagrams forwarded/second, datagrams outbound discarded, datagrams outbound no route, datagrams received address errors, datagrams received delivered/second, datagrams received discarded, datagrams received header errors, datagrams received unknown protocol, datagrams received/second, datagrams sent/second, total datagrams/second, fragment re-assembly failures, fragmentation failures, fragmented datagrams/second, fragments created/second, fragments re-assembled/second, fragments received/second, datagrams with no port/second, datagrams received errors, etc.
AimBetter provides thorough information about your network transportation and metrics and displays every detail that has a meaning regarding your network transportation, performance, metrics, etc. and it also helps you monitor the security of your network. With AimBetter you can be sure to have all the important information you need regarding your network to keep it well functioning and secure and easily troubleshoot it whenever needed.
