Proactive network management – what is it?
A proactive approach to network management ensures prompt resolution of various network issues through network monitoring, data gathering, analysis, and execution of corrective and remedial activities. Service providers maintain an optimised network and happy clients as a result. Your company’s technology might be among the most advanced of its kind, but in the end, it will create problems. Businesses know that not encountering issues regarding their technology solutions is not possible. So they’ve (wisely) been focusing on preventing technological issues before they occur. Proactive monitoring is when your company is constantly searching for signs which indicate that a problem may be imminently occurring. This technique allows IT professionals to identify problems that could seriously impact their tech and stop it from their way. Proactive outage network handling
Three types of power outages can be classified according to their duration and impact:
- Once the fault is resolved, power is automatically restored.
- A brownout refers to a drop in power supply. Brownout is caused by the dimming of lighting when the voltage drops. Brownouts can lead to equipment failure or incorrect operation.
- A blackout is when there is a complete loss of power in an area. It is the most serious type of power outage. It is particularly difficult to quickly recover from blackouts that result from or result from power stations tripping. The duration of an outage can vary depending on its nature and how it is configured in the electrical network.
Rolling Blackouts are when electricity demand exceeds supply. They allow customers to get power at the right voltage, at the expense of customers who do not have power. These blackouts are common in developing countries and can be planned in advance or happen without notice. These have also happened in developed countries. For example, in the

of 2000-2001 when the wholesale electricity market was deregulated by the government. Blackouts can also be used to protect the public from fire, as an example of a gas leak.
Network teams gain from proactive surveillance methods and tools, too.

Automatically identifying network problems For a proactive solution for monitoring networks to function, it must be able to identify any problems on its own.
THE ROLE OF THE IT DEPARTMENT
Traditionally, IT departments were able to detect issues only manually by a user complaining about a problem, or through the network team looking through information on the network. But this method of identifying problems with networks is not effective and does not account for every issue. Your business needs to identify problems like this and address them these issues before they grow into an issue that is much larger. Real-time alerts When an issue does arise within your network, you must be aware of it immediately after it occurs. The less time that passes between the problem arising and your team is aware of the issue the more effective. NPMs are constantly scanning the network for any issues. If they spot something unusual such as spikes in bandwidth usage or slow data transfers between two points and so on. This will immediately trigger the alarm. Monitoring proactively also lets you identify issues that occur within your network during the daytime. If your network experiences an issue while your team is not in the office, and you don’t find out about it the issue until you get back at work, then you’re likely to lose time trying to determine the cause.
Proactive monitoring tools:
By looking at the data together with other indicators of malware Network teams are able to find potentially harmful data in their networks.

But the network, system and application downtimes continue to be a common occurrence, resulting in the company’s several thousand dollars. Operational analytics for IT can provide useful information that can help companies get back up and running faster after downtime. In this article, we’ll explore the three methods IT teams can become more proactive in their work.
1. Plan and optimize the use of cloud infrastructure:
There are two methods to make this powerful resource truly beneficial to the company:
Determine if you require reserved or on-demand instances, and then schedule automatic scaling of cloud infrastructure in accordance with requirements.
2. Prepare and plan for the possibility of downtime:
The biggest obstacle when tracking trends in downtime is the lack of visibility. The reason for downtime is many underlying problems. The creation of a war room dashboard to monitor alarm history could aid in tracing patterns and also help predict the time when systems will fail. The following report reveals variations in the daily alarms. If the graphs show zero fluctuations, that means there’s nothing to change with the number of alarms. Small variations in the number of alarms per day are okay, however, extreme fluctuations can be a reason to be concerned.
