Guys, i need your advice!
My company has a lot of branch offices situated across the country. Each office has two independent internet channels (primary and backup). Through this channels we use several business applications, so stability and quality of this channels are critical for business. We want to totally control quality and stability of this (both) channels channels in realtime. Which technology (metrics) and software would you recommend? Now we use simple Ping (every 60 sec) to gather the statistic and alerts. Ping is not objective instruments as we think and it has spaces between the requests.
What is best practice on your opinion?
I would certainly take a look at NetPath - Easy Visual Network Path Analysis | SolarWinds - this can be a unique tool for troubleshooting access to critical applications. You have the flexibility to deploy probes at each of the branch offices along with monitoring the network equipment and circuits themselves.
