Network Monitor, or as it is commonly known as Netmon, is a DNS data analysis tool developed by Microsoft engineer Raymond Patch. It is designed to perform network analysis as well as troubleshoot network related issues. Any packet that is sent from the host network is sniffed for signs of malware. And any packet that is received by the host undergoes meticulous scanning so as to ensure that it is virus free. In addition, it performs routine traffic observations. This provides the engineer a crystal clear picture of how cluttered or how spacious the network transmissions are. The robustness of available filters dishes out the efficiency of every application installed on your PC. It is a free software tool so you need not pay for its services. Not every user can understand it though. Its complex mechanism is comprehensible only by advanced engineers.

Key Features Of Netmon

Analyse Data Packets
Grab individual data packets from their path of flow and observe them for analytics. In this way, you can polish down every packet before sending it on its way to another server. This helps you to review the speed stats and dissolve network issues before they can even occur. Netmon’s inbuilt filters also help you to view specific parts of the traffic. You can use these filters for an in-depth analysis of certain data pockets.

The steady flow of packets from one network to another doesn’t mean speed or time is measurable. Sometimes, the process can be awfully slow and sometimes, it may not even happen successfully. This can happen due to various things, one of them being network clogs. These clogs occur when the traffic flow is unchecked for too long. Luckily, Netmon ensures your network is never clogged again. With this, you can analyse traffic flow from server to server. It gives you an insight of your network speed.

Real-Time Data Provision
As the packets flow in their medium, you get to view their bandwidth latency, disk usage and event logs all in real time.

How To Download On PC
