Abstract: Research has shown that there is a substantial lost in productivity anytime the performance of computer network becomes suspect. The resultant financial effect of supplementary bandwidth investment presents a daunting picture. Performance issues are very crucial in computer networks, for example when many computers are interconnected, complex interactions arise with unforeseen consequences. This complexity leads to degradation of performance if the system is not managed properly. The research explores the use of performance management aspect of the network management to maximize efficiency and productivity in computer network. It also tries to find out the features of performance management, examines current solutions to performance management features, investigate about techniques adopted to achieve quality of service and then attempts to recommend an appropriate performance approach to a medium sized company. The research is expected to reveal that performance management concept is one of the most efficient and effective network management approaches which ensures automated and preventive maintenance, thus relieving the network managers of doing manual investigation to find out many problems that the network might create. The research outcome enhances network availability to users, remote and automated monitoring to network administrators and then increase productivity to cooperate bodies.
