Network performance monitoring

Maintain responsive and performant networks no matter how widely distributed your resources are.

Find out how by reading the network monitoring tech paper.


Why monitor network performance?

  • teal icon-01

    Network availability

    Don’t risk losing host reachability and downtime — and failing to meet your SLA’s.

  • green icon-01

    Network responsiveness

    Control latency and packet loss to ensure your network remains suitable for your applications.

  • pink icon-01

    Network bandwidth consumption

    Stay on top of bandwidth load at the interface, and set up alerts before the interface is completely saturated.

InfluxData support for network monitoring.

  • Ping integration: The Telegraf Ping Input Plugin sends a ping message by executing the system ping command and reports the results.

  • SNMP integration: The Telegraf SNMP plugin gathers metrics from SNMP agents. It provides a solution for SNMP data collection and analytics using InfluxData’s platform.

  • Syslog integration: Telegraf can be deployed as a syslog collector with the Telegraf Syslog plugin. Syslog messages are sent from the monitored device to the IP address of the collector.

Put network monitoring with InfluxDB and Telegraf to work for you.

  • Gain a holistic view of your network performance monitoring by feeding data into a centralized time series platform.

  • Ensure responsive and performant networks in your hybrid, distributed and containerized environments.

  • Deliver consistent and predictable network performance to protect the dataflow sustaining your IT operations and applications.

Vonage, a UK-based cloud service company, chose InfluxData to provide 99.999% uptime monitoring of its global SaaS because InfluxData could meet and exceed its business and technical requirements. Grafana is used for all its graphing capabilities.

Coupa Software

In just 4 weeks, Coupa (a cloud platform for business spend), was able to go beyond building a proof-of-concept with InfluxData, and was able to create a working prototype that was kept simple and iterated upon often: It used Telegraf to collect data, a single InfluxDB node to store data, Grafana to visualize data, and Kapacitor to analyze data.


Using InfluxDB, ntopng is open to “big data” systems that can scale with data in volume and speed. It is able to export monitoring information in JSON format towards various systems including Elasticsearch/Logstash and ZMQ. ntopng is also able to collect, self-produce (from packets), and export monitoring information by normalizing it in JSON format.
