Gartner has published the 2016 Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics.

Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (NPMD) solutions play a key role in helping IT ops support increasingly complex technologies and services with network visibility, detection of performance issues and root cause analysis, according to Gartner.

The new report covers vendors' continued innovation with operational analytics, integrated GUIs and more flexible deployment options.

According to the Magic Quadrant: "NPMD tools allow for IT operations to understand the performance of application, network and infrastructure components via network instrumentation. These tools also provide insight into the quality of the end user's experience. The goal of NPMD products is not only to monitor the network traffic and infrastructure to facilitate outage and degradation resolution, but also to identify performance optimization opportunities. This is conducted via diagnostics, analytics and root cause analysis capabilities to complement monitoring of today's complex IT environments."

Vendors included in the report :

- Corvil

- Flowmon Networks

- Genie Networks

- Hewlett Packard Enterprise

- InfoVista

- NetScout Systems

- NetScout Systems (Fluke Networks)

- Niksun

- Paessler

- Riverbed

- SevOne

The NPMD market is a fast-growing segment of the larger network management space. Gartner estimates the size of the NPMD tool market at $1.1 billion and growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.0%, according to Gartner's Market Share Analysis: IT Operations Management Software, Worldwide, 2014.
