Top 5 IT Resolutions for 2015- Resolve to Attain Ultimate Network Fitness Using these Expert Strategies

Network Instruments- 10 5 IT Resolutions

 

1PLAY BETTER WITH THE OTHER IT TEAMS. SHARE YOUR PACKETS

Raise your IT profile by promoting the packet. Find other teams that might benefit from packet intelligence too. That application developer in the break room might be interested to know the network impact and chattiness of an internal app they’re coding. Performance monitoring solutions like the Observer Platform can provide access to packets and simplify the sharing of analysis with easy-to-read graphical reports and dashboards.

As you upgrade your network, be sure your monitoring tools can keep up. When increasing network capacities, verify your monitoring infrastructure can interface with high-speed network connections. Another consideration to lighten the load on existing monitoring infrastructure would be to assess network packet brokers or aggregation switches to load balance large amounts of traffic across multiple monitoring appliances.

3GET SERIOUS ABOUT SDN

Upgrade your gear, add some new equipment, and do it right. In the case of SDN overlays and NFV, it will be mostly software but you’ll need hardware to run it. Fold new components into both planning and operations monitoring/troubleshooting systems and workflows. In 2015, EMA expects to see management tool vendors move from a “BYO API” approach to more pre-tested, out-of-the-box support for SDN underlays, SDN overlays, and NFV technologies.

4KEEP AN OPEN EYE ON THE INSIDE THREAT

Even if you don’t have the word “Security” in your title, the network team is the first line of defense against an inside threat. Question unexpected bursts of traffic or unusual behavior from a single client or internal device. Additionally, when thinking about access privileges, do you have a handle on who can access what assets? Does the network team give unlimited access to any file share? Key questions can minimize your exposure to internal threats.

5EFFECTIVELY MANAGE BIG PERFORMANCE DATA FOR BETTER TROUBLESHOOTING

With dynamic and distributed environments, it’s critical that a performance monitoring solution can scale and present an aggregated view of performance across all datacenters and intuitively drill to the correct appliance, regardless of the server or resource location at the time of the problem. Logical workflows and robust search capabilities quickly determine the location and scope of the problem, and facilitate root-cause analysis.
