Manufacturing Made Easy with Saplings Synchronized Clock Systems

The production department in any company typically runs hand in hand with the company’s overall success.

The 3 Most Important KPI's to Monitor On Your Windows Servers

Much like monitoring the heath of your body, monitoring the health of your IT systems can get complicated. There are potentially hundreds of data points that you could monitor, but I am often asked by customers to help them decide what they should monitor. This is mostly due to there being so many available KPI options that can be implemented. However, once you begin to monitor a particular KPI, then to some degree you are implicitly stating that this KPI must be important (since I am monitoring...

A Simple Solution To Combatting Virtual Data Center Blind Spots

Blind spots are a long-established threat to virtual data centers. They are inherent to virtual machine (VM) usage and technology due to the nature of VMs, lack of visibility for inter- and intra-VM data monitoring, the typical practices around the use of VM’s, and the use of multiple hypervisors in enterprise environments. Virtual machines by their nature hide inter- and intra-VM traffic. This is because the traffic stays within in a very small geographic area. As I mentioned in a previous blog...

Scalable NetFlow - 3 Key Questions to Ask Your NetFlow Vendor

Why is flows per second a flawed way to measure a netflow collector's capability? Flows-per-second is often considered the primary yardstick to measure the capability of a netflow analyzer’s flow capture (aka collection) rate. This seems simple on its face. The more flows-per-second that a flow collector can consume, the more visibility it provides, right? Well, yes and no. The Basics NetFlow was originally conceived as a means to provide network professionals the data to make sense of the traff...

Why Just Backing Up Your Router Config is the Wrong Thing To Do

One of the most fundamental best practices of any IT organization is to have a backup strategy and system in place for critical systems and devices.

Encryption: The Next Big Security Threat

As is common in the high-tech industry, fixing one problem often creates another. The example I’m looking at today is network data encryption.

It’s used on both internal and external communications between servers, as well as server to clients. Many companies (e.g. Google, Yahoo, WebEx, Exchange, SharePoint, Wikipedia, E*TRADE, Fidelity, etc.) have tur...
