The present invention leverages a data gathering service to provide information regarding a network system's health, performance and/or utilization via a computing entity, local and/or remote. This provides an optimized means to aggregate a single network's data and/or multiple networks' data, decreasing the amount of effort required by system administrators to keep a network operational and/or to provide control of its utilization and/or update a system's state. In one instance of the present invention, a data gathering service aggregates data from systems and provides access to this information via a communication means. In another instance of the present invention, aggregated data is utilized to provide manual and/or automatic control of one or more aspects of a system's utilization by an entity and/or a person. In yet another instance of the present invention, aggregated utilization data is employed to provide a management/productivity tool for end-users of a networked system.
