Network topology mapping is essential for any IT department responsible for maintaining complex networks.
By maintaining an accurate and timely map of the network, IT administrators can detect real-time network issues as well as anticipate bottlenecks within their configurations. Additionally, because topology maps highlight relationships between devices, they can be used to detect suspicious connections on the network (easily detected by comparing a current topology map with a baseline map). Ideally, using topology mapping in combination with network performance monitoring software helps enterprises improve network performance.
LiveNX includes a real-time network topology mapper to visualize discovered devices, interfaces, applications, VPNs, and users. Network and application performance data is shown in context on the network topology in an easy to interpret visual display.
