Baselining is a method for analyzing computer network performance. The method is marked by comparing current performance to a historical metric, or "baseline". If the performance of a network switch or other network components is measured over a period of time, that performance figure can be used as a comparative baseline for configuration changes.
Baselining is useful for many performance management tasks, including:
- Monitoring daily network performance
- Measuring trends in network performance
- Assessing whether network performance is meeting requirements laid out in a service agreement
