Metering gives a clear picture of your network and pinpoints future hotspots, bottlenecks, etc. It can also be a valuable tool in capacity planning and gauging your network’s ability to succeed in the future. It allows you to ultimately lower your support calls by providing better and faster services.

That’s why I’m on the pro-metering side; it allows you to extract useful information from your network infrastructure, giving you more evidence to base your decisions on.
