Network monitoring is a critical part of managing network health, especially in enterprises where highly sensitive data and devices live across large-scale networks.
The network monitoring market continues to grow and diversify, as companies of different sizes, industries, and goals look to these tools for greater network transparency.
Read on to learn what the network monitoring market looks like and how it’s changing to meet new client needs:
A Closer Look at the Network Monitoring Market
Also read: Top Networking Trends & Developments
The network monitoring market reached about $2 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $5 billion by 2026, according to a report by Global Market Insights.
The expansion and changing landscape of enterprise networks drives larger companies to find tools that automate and simplify their network insights. Especially for organizations that are managing several types of networking devices and solutions — such as the Internet of Things (IoT), private 5G — and mobile networking through bring your own device (BYOD) policies, it’s become crucial for leaders to find tools that make key network metrics immediately actionable for network administrators.
The number of enterprise network monitoring tools is expected to continue its growth trajectory, especially with widely available free and open-source solutions on the market.
Auto-discovery: One of the most important features of network monitoring tools is discovery. This feature automates the process of logging and updating information on different devices, users, and other network components.
Packet capturing and automated data analysis: Packet capturing makes it possible for companies to track network traffic history, users, problems, and a variety of other metrics related to network performance.
Data visualization and mapping: It’s important for professionals with varying levels of technical expertise to understand high-level network metrics. Data visualization and network mapping simplify data into visual aids for all users to comprehend.
Event logging: Beyond major issues within the network, monitoring tools should keep a record, or an event log, that network administrators can refer to when they’re solving a problem.
Alerting system: When network monitoring software discovers a problem on the network, the tool should be set up to provide alerts to the team members who can resolve the issue quickly.
Reporting: Many times, network administrators will need to report on the problems they found and solved on the network, along with other metrics. Network monitoring tools often offer native reporting to make this process simpler.

Improved network visibility
With data visualization and dashboards, network monitoring tools are designed to improve network visibility. This is especially necessary for network administrators who manage growing and diversifying networks.
Networking teams can’t always plan for outages or network issues, but they can sometimes prevent them if they see the signs soon enough. Network monitoring tools work to help identify small problems before they turn into network-wide outages.
Time saved for network administrators
When certain network management tasks can be automated, it saves time for the experts who deal with network troubleshooting and management on a daily basis. Their time is now optimized, so they can focus on higher-value network needs.
Network security management
Network security can be cumbersome and expensive to manage. Automated alerts, event logging, and compliance-driven features in network monitoring tools all work together to improve network security.
Not everyone is a data expert. Network monitoring tools frequently include helpful data visualizations and graphs, so team members of all backgrounds can understand what networking work needs to be done.
Network monitoring tools collect network performance data constantly over extended periods of time. The data collected can be invaluable when tracking performance trends and network improvement needs over time.

Biden Answers Inflation Query by Calling Fox Reporter SOB
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden responded to a question about inflation on Monday by calling a Fox News reporter a vulgarity.
The president was in the East Room of the White House for a meeting of his Competition Council, which is focused on changing regulations and enforcing laws to help consumers deal with high prices. Reporters in the room shouted a number of questions after Biden’s remarks.
Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Biden about inflation, which is at a nearly 40-year high and has hurt the president’s public approval. Doocy’s network has been relentlessly critical of Biden.
Doocy called out, “Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?”
Biden responded with sarcasm, “It’s a great asset — more inflation.” Then he shook his head and added, “What a stupid son of a [expletive].”
His comments were captured on video and by the microphone in front of him. Doocy laughed it off in a subsequent appearance on his network, joking, “Nobody has fact-checked him yet and said it’s not true.”
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The White House has insisted repeatedly that it is focused on curbing inflation, with Biden reorienting his entire economic agenda around the issue. But the president has also shown a willingness to challenge a media that he deems to be too critical, especially Fox News and Doocy.
At his news conference last week, Biden said to Doocy with sarcasm, “You always ask me the nicest questions.”
“I have a whole binder full,” the reporter answered.
“I know you do,” Biden said. “None of them make a lot of sense to me. Fire away.”
J.Lo, ‘Marry Me’ Co-stars Talk About Life Imitating Art in New Rom-com
Jennifer Lopez can do it all, except age. She definitely does not seem to age at all, but in her new movie “Marry Me, J.Lo’s playing a part that looks and sounds familiar. We’re not complaining, and neither are her castmates.
Jennifer Lopez (as Kat Valdez): “All right, let’s do it again from the top. (singing) Marry me, marry me, say yes. Marry me, marry me, say yes.”
Jennifer Lopez is ready to say “I do” in the new rom-com “Marry Me.”
Entertainment reporter: “In 36 hours, superstar Kat Valdez and Grammy-winning Bastian will perform their new song ‘Marry Me’ and exchange vows in front of a streaming audience of 20 million people.”
But when her soon-to-be fiance gets busted cheating on her, she decides to tie the knot with a random concertgoer played by Owen Wilson.
Character in “Marry Me”: “Do you, some guy, take Kat to be your lawfully wedded wife?”
Owen Wilson (as Charlie Gilbert): “Okay.”
J.Lo says playing a mega-superstar singer who’s looking for real love hits really close to home.
Jennifer Lopez: “It was so much about it that, really, I could understand like nobody else could understand.”
Even to the point that…
Jennifer Lopez: “Kind of bearing my soul. It was actually a little bit more uncomfortable than playing a character that is nothing like you, because this is you kinda like really bringing real, personal life experience into a role in a way that I’ve never had to.”
Owen Wilson says that connection is what made J.Lo the best person to play Kat.
Owen Wilson: “You can’t imagine anyone but Jennifer Lopez playing this part, just because it seems so perfect for her skill set.”
One of those skills being busting a move.
Owen Wilson: “Everyone was watching the monitor, even the security guys, just because it’s fun watching her dance. You definitely don’t need a double for her dancing.”
Sarah Silverman, who plays his BFF in the movie, agrees.
Sarah Silverman: “We were at a J.Lo concert where she’s playing someone else named Kat Valdez. But it was unbelievable to watch live.”
J.Lo also got to reunite with Maluma for the movie, who she’s made music with before.
Jennifer Lopez: “Working with Maluma was a joy. It was so much fun. This was his first movie, his first time acting, and he was a natural. He was a real natural. He’s like, ‘You know, I’m not this guy. This is not who I – I’m not Bastian.’ I go, ‘No, I know. I know.”
Jennifer Lopez (as Kat Valdez): “I think we left smart six weeks ago.”
“Marry Me” asks for moviegoers’ commitment beginning Feb. 11.
