Switch Port Monitoring Tools and Software Market – Overview

Switch port monitoring is a job that is often unnoticed and companies do not keep an eye on which port and how many ports are being used the most and which one are having the highest throughput and bandwidth on the switches. Using a separate tool or spreadsheets to manage these complex tasks, take more time, which adds-up to its complexity. Thus, switch port monitoring tools and software help a network administrator to monitor and manage all the switch ports. Each switch port is assigned to a virtual local area network (VLAN) interface to separate various switch ports into separate VLAN. Switch ports assigned on the same VLAN can connect with each other using hardware switching.
