What is Network Monitoring Software?

Network monitoring software monitors one or more computer network(s) for up-time, transmission speed, quality of service (QoS) and/or failing components and records, documents, and notifies a network administrator (via email, SMS or other alarms) in case of outages or degradation of service. Network monitoring is part of network management.
