Collecting as many metrics, statuses, and logs about the servers is indeed the first step, you never know what data you will need to solve a particular problem.

The second step is to process and correctly pinpoint where the network performance/behavior differs from the expected range/baseline. 


Can your network monitoring software automate the obvious (execute remote corrective actions in response to alerts) and notify the IT person about only critical situations where the human needs to make a decision about the resolution options? 

We expect the network monitoring software today to do just that. 


I would say NetCrunch can do it, but do you have any experience with other monitoring products that provide a similar type of monitoring experience for IT teams?

Hello,  For Network Analyzer, you can use Elastiflow. It's pretty complete even though its development has stopped lately (we have recently deployed it in production for a customer). It is still just as good as it was a few years ago. For Network Configuration Management, it really depends on the sets of features you're looking for. But, you can use the Ansible & Gitlab combo. We've written a full tutorial for it on our website: https://www.zen-networks.io/ne... Good luck!

I recommend checking Riverbed, depending on what you need: SNMP, MIB, or Flow. They have many tools available but they are not open source.
