It is a well-established practice for network managers to gather Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) data and metrics from network devices, complemented by NetFlow and packet inspection, for planning, monitoring, and troubleshooting network health and performance. But network log data is becoming increasingly important for these purposes as well. Research by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) in early 2014 found that network log data is actually the most common data source in use today for planning, monitoring, and troubleshooting network health and performance. In November 2104, EMA released the findings from "Log Analytics for Network Operations Management," a follow-on study documenting current uses and best practices for using log data as part of network management. In this study, over 60% of research participants indicated that log data was more important than any other network management data type. This paper reviews several key findings and recommendations.
