Visual tools that reduce complexity and make big data accessible are in high demand. The process of developing and showing graphical representations of network components, network metrics, and data flows is known as network visualization. In simple terms, it's the visual component of network monitoring and analysis.
Why visualize Networks?
The global network is extensive. Often, you need to be aware of such connections in order to provide meaningful solutions. Network visualization can be useful in this situation. Its widespread use can be attributed to four main factors:
- Simple - Node-link network modelling is simple, even for those with no prior experience using network representations.
- Rapid - When data is presented in a tangible way, humans are excellent at identifying patterns. With network visualization, trends and outliers may be seen quickly.
- Expandable - Network visualization enables analysts to go beyond individual data points, exposing context, structure, and connections between individuals.
- Incisive - Visualizations enable analysts to interact with and study related data, revealing previously hidden insights.
Network maps : Maps may be used to display not just the individual devices, physical connections, logical connections, rack locations, and even floor layouts that makeup your network architecture, but also the complete network topology.
In light of this, an interactive network visualization tool may transform your information into insight.
So, here's what you need! A powerful network monitoring tool like OpManager, that lets you quickly dig down from a broad view of the network to devices and ports using OpManager's network topology function. Along the process, you will get live warnings and comprehensive network analytics that help you make quicker and wiser decisions. Additionally, by automating your network documentation procedures, you may significantly lower your tech debt.
