How Do You Measure Network Health and Performance

It is important to regularly assess the health and performance of your network, as this has a significant impact on the success of your business. A poorly performing network can impair normal business processes and operations, reducing your business productivity and ultimately, its profitability.

How Do You Measure Network Performance

To accurately get a measurement of your network performance, some possible indicators that should be assessed are:

  • Network bandwidth: This is a measure of the maximum capacity of your network; it is the maximum amount of data that can be transmitted between two points across the internet. The higher your network bandwidth, the better its performance.
  • Throughput: This is the amount of data processed by a network at any given point in time. The more data processed by the network over a defined period of time, the higher its performance.
  • Individual device performance: This relates to how individual devices are able to take advantage of the bandwidth and throughput capabilities of the overall network. This is how your customer will judge and measure your network performance.
