Ethernet Performance Test Software
Optimize your Network by Running Regular Performance Tests
Performance Testing is an integral part of network management. PRTG Network Monitor is a powerful Ethernet performance test software, which continuously monitors your network and displays the monitoring data in clearly laid out graphs and tables.
PRTG's functionality includes availability and bandwidth monitoring, making sure that all your Ethernet devices are up and running and tracking network activity.
How Does PRTG Monitor Ethernet Performance?
The various technologies PRTG uses come in very handy for Ethernet performance testing. The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is used to monitor network device readings such as memory, temperature, disk usage, or CPU load, as well as uptime and bandwidth consumption.
The PRTG network management tools are Cisco certified and can be used as a Cisco performance monitor: the software supports the NetFlow protocol which supplies comprehensive monitoring data on Cisco devices.
As it is an advanced bandwidth calculator and network reporting tool, PRTG also helps you to determine possible bandwidth bottlenecks that might affect Ethernet performance. The Ethernet performance test software shows you not only accumulated bandwidth consumption, but enables you to see network activity over a longer period of time. This way, you can determine Ethernet performance at peak times, when the load on your network might be much higher than average.
