There are some things that Microsoft builds into their product that are just amazing, while other things that are just pathetic! When it comes to monitoring Active Directory, we have both. However, by using the good and supplementing the bad with other options, a fantastic solution can be achieved!
The Good and Bad of Active Directory Monitoring

When auditing is configured for the different objects (users, groups, …
Delivering business-critical services to end users without any disruption or degradation in the quality or speed can be quite a challenge. The underlying network and server layers must be in top shape, because any performance degradation, fault, or attack in these layers will affect the service delivery.

Do you struggle with monitoring and tracking of Active Directory changes? Do you want to monitor Active Directory changes but have given up due to the complexity?
Microsoft provides some very detailed tracking capabilities in Active Directory by using auditing and advanced auditing. These technologies are not new in concept, but some of the details are radical and new to most admins. Setting up auditing and advanced auditing can be very tricky and not 100-percent clear. Then, after you have events being logged, you must manually sift through the logs to find what you want. Tracking down an individual event can be like searching for a needle in a haystack …if the event is even still in the log t…

With ever-growing enterprise networks, a lot of concerns arise with regard to network usage. Traffic analytics becomes a key aspect in order to ensure:
* Productive usage of the network bandwidth
* Secure network
* Continuous availability of the network
and a lot of other associated factors.
The dependence on the network is ever-increasing. This dependence in a way boosts productivity of the organization but the flip-side is that the bandwidth usage for applications other than that concerning business will heavily impact the flow of business activities. Unproductive bandwidth usage leads to bandwidth competition between the different applications using the network. This could even le…

This is where organizations must make sure that all the parameters and underlying supporting infrastructure should work perfectly to give an unmatched experience to end users.
Gartner says, “End-user experience monitori…
