New Training: Systems Monitoring Tools and Techniques
In this 26-video, advanced training, CBT Nuggets trainer Trevor Sullivan covers the knowledge network technicians need to choose and use the right tool for extracting and making sense out of your system’s infrastructure health information.
A network technician who doesn’t know systems monitoring is like a pilot who doesn’t know their instruments, or a racecar driver without a tachometer (that’s the RPM gauge). In other words, a network technician can be perfectly capable and good at doing their job, but they also need access to the data that will enable them to diagnose existing problems and predict upcoming ones.
This systems monitoring tools and techniques training is designed with an on-the-job network technician in mind. It familiarizes you with the capabilities of many tools available — some for free, others for a fee. Your job will be easier when you know the alerting, notification and reporting tools that are just waiting for you to use them.
The three-part series covers topics such as maximizing the data you can retrieve from Windows’ Task Manager, selecting the right alert, notification, or reporting tool for your network, and minimizing unplanned downtime with advanced knowledge of infrastructure issues.
