Today, the adoption of effective solutions for the management of computer networks (CN) is not possible without their monitoring. Monitoring of various parameters allows the CN to receive the necessary information about their condition. The paper deals with the development of methods for monitoring in the context of the development of the CN. The problems of the CN monitoring in various aspects, such as the construction of a distributed monitoring architecture, intellectualization of monitoring methods, collection, storage and analysis of large volumes of network data, network traffic classification and clustering, network monitoring visualization, QoS monitoring, Wi-Fi networks monitoring, and summarizing of the existing approaches to address these problems (pp.63-73).

Keywords: computer networks, monitoring, distributed monitoring architecture, intellectualization of monitoring techniques, network traffic classification and clustering, network monitoring visualization, QoS monitoring, Wi-Fi networks monitoring.
