Network operations and engineering support personnel need to monitor the health of the platforms in their network and be
able to configure, analyze and repair local or remote computers to satisfy customer expectations. Often, there exists a
contractual service level of performance, making network management an essential part of the system. The network operator
needs to know the status of the network and needs the tools to take any necessary corrective actions.
