The key to efficiently running networks is proper management. Performance management measures a network's level of operation, ensures that it maintains an acceptable level, and provides information for expanding the network. Fault management detects, logs, and notifies users of network problems and automatically fixes many problems to keep the network running effectively. These two management concepts go hand-in-hand by defining the capability of a network, then identifying and repairing problems. This technology is complex and even experience networking professionals struggle with these concepts and look for quantity instruction on how to implement them. Performance and Fault Management is a comprehensive guide to designing and implementing effective solutions that will measure and report the effectiveness of Cisco networks.
