This is a deep dive training on infrastructure monitoring! We would like to say, “Finally!” It took a long time to prepare good examples, tools and scenarios for you! Regular monitoring ensures that you always have up-to-date knowledge about how particular components of your infrastructure operate. The most important thing in monitoring is to work out the baseline that can be a good reference to identify problems and to analyze some specific conditions of infrastructure components to operate. In vast majority of cases operating system troubleshooting involves monitoring, from analysis of the boot process to network performance or even particular processes. During the seminar you will become familiar with great monitoring tools and their efficient usage and several techniques for monitoring infrastructure components and their particular working phases.
The course covers the following operating systems: Windows 8.1/10, Windows Server 2012 R2 / 2016.
Enterprise administrators, infrastructure architects, security professionals, systems engineers, network administrators, IT professionals, security consultants and other people responsible for implementing network and perimeter security.
To attend this training you should have good hands-on experience in administering Windows infrastructure. At least 8 years in the field is recommended. You should have good understanding of how operating system works. Ideally you should have read “Windows Internals” by Mark Russinovich book
