Managing, monitoring, and troubleshooting are the routine tasks performed on every network regardless of its size. Proper management and monitoring of a network can forestall many problems that commonly occur in a network environment as well as make troubleshooting problems that do arise that much easier. However, even in the best designed and managed networks, problems will arise. Knowing the proper troubleshooting methodology and being familiar with the many tools available to troubleshoot network issues – both hardware and software –will make the task of finding and solving problems much easier. This course describes the methods used to manage and monitor modern networks as well as the hardware and software tools used in the troubleshooting process.
