Network management is implemented using a variety of tools. It delivers an automated method of managing network devices and resources. It controls the performance and availability of network services. The aim of this research is to demonstrate that a set of network monitoring tools can be used to show the geographical location of a network problem. It was conducted using the network monitoring tools PolyMon and NetMaCon. PolyMon uses its monitors to monitor different parameters of management information. It generates an alert when a specified threshold is reached and stores the data in the database. NetMaCon uses the stored data to generate a visual display of the location of the network problem.
