What is Network Management?


Network Management software is software that is used to provision, discover, monitor and maintain computer networks. Network management software usually collects information about network devices ( which are called Nodes ) using protocols like SNMP, ICMP, CDP etc. This information is then presented to network administrators in an easy to understand and accessible manner to help them quickly identify and remediate problems. Problems may present itself in the form of network faults, performance bottlenecks, compliance issues etc. In some cases the software may try to rectify the problem. Network management software may also help with tasks involved in provisioning new networks.
