Synopses & Reviews
Terplan describes how network managers and system administrators can use Internet technology in the more secure environment of an intranet, emphasizing performance management and mentioning other management functions without detailing them. After overviews of the technology, he covers content authoring and management, log file analysis, traffic measurements, web server and browser management, load balancing and optimal distribution, look-through measurements, and trends.
To avoid serious bottlenecks, components of the Internet and of intranets-such as servers, browsers, and the access networks-must be properly designed, implemented, managed, and monitored. Beginning with the basics, Intranet Performance Management sets forth the standards, methods, and tools that can simplify and unify systems and network management, avoid the seemingly inherent problems associated with them, and contain costs.
In this book, world reknowned expert Kornel Terplan addresses:
Proactive server, browser, and access network monitoring
Managing and authoring home page content
Traffic management and load balancing in the access networks
Reviewing and evaluating usage statistics using log files
These tasks-essential to the success of an intranet-require the active and diligent work of the management team. Effective performance of these tasks allows for the use of inexpensive browsers, facilitates education, and improves Internet culture and scalability.
