This Systems Monitoring Tools and Techniques training prepares learners to choose and use the right tool for extracting and making sense out of your system's infrastructure health information.
A systems administrator who doesn't know systems monitoring is like a pilot who doesn't know their instruments, or a race car driver without a tachometer. In other words, a sysadmin 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 sysadmin 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.
After completing this training you'll know how to choose and use the right tool for extracting and making sense out of your system's infrastructure health information.
For supervisors, this training can be used to onboard new sysadmins, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a systems monitoring reference resource.
