The Network Performance Monitoring (NPM) market consists of tools that leverage a combination of data sources to provide a holistic view of how networks (including corporate on-premises, cloud, multicloud, hybrid and other networks) are performing. Data sources include: Network-device-generated traffic data Raw network packets Network-device-generated health metrics and events NPM tools provide diagnostic workflows and forensic data to identify the root causes of performance degradations — increasingly through the adoption of advanced technology, such as artificial intelligence (AI) or machine learning algorithms (ML). Finally, based on network-derived performance data, NPM tools provide insight into the quality of the end-user experience.

Most queries' defaults were abstracted to the point where information was less useful and the results would be misleading.
