LAN is more complex to monitor when compared to a WAN. A typical LAN comprises of devices of various types such as router, switch, AP, servers, printers. Each of these devices need to monitored at varied intervals and the performance metrics that need to be monitored also varies. The complexity in monitoring them doubles further if the fact that each of these devices are manufactured by multiple vendors is taken into account. Further some enterprises need visibility into the subnet level.
