Monitoring the Surf Shoppe Servers

Monitoring the Surf Shoppe Servers

 

• The Surf Shoppe will be undertaking a subsidiary but very important function for MegaCorp – determining the cost-effectiveness and profitability (i.e., TCO and ROI) of a possible new operating mode (e.g., a private cloud, etc.). For this reason, it is imperative that the servers and other systems utilized by the Surf Shoppe be carefully monitored for performance and other issues. Sam Ayam, the MegaCorp CIO, who originally conceived the Surf Shoppe concept, wants to know if there is a “single best” design for a performance monitoring console.

Write a five to eight (5-8) page paper in which you cover the following considerations:
1. Sam wants you to design a performance monitoring console that can be viewed from a single screen, if at all possible. He is hoping that you can come up with something that is easily readable at a single glance but provides the critical performance indicators that an administrator would need to have at his or her “fingertips”. Determine whether or not it is possible to design a performance monitoring console that can be viewed from a single screen that is easily readable at a single glance but provides the critical performance indicators that an administrator would need to have at his or her “fingertips”.
2. Analyze the advantages and disadvantages of designing a performance monitoring console that can be viewed from a single screen that is easily readable at a single glance but provides the critical performance indicators that an administrator would need to have at his or her “fingertips”.
3. Imagine that it is possible to design a single-screen console that adequately displays all of the critical server performance data. Synthesize how many servers a single-screen console like this can be used for.
4. Determine if there are specific server types that would be more appropriate for monitoring via a single screen or if something can effectively be designed for any server role. Justify your answer.
5. Create a supporting graphic, depicting your single-screen console and its likely contents. Note: For this assignment, it might be easiest to use a screenshot of the actual console. Furthermore, the graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.
6. Sam thinks that you should use the MegaCorp SAN for data storage, considering your workload as Surf Shoppe SysAdmin, with only one assistant. He feels that maintaining your own Surf Shoppe NAS for local data storage would be more trouble than it’s worth. Explain whether or not you agree with the provided scenario and explain your rationale.
7. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.
