Book Description

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.
