This week, you’ll be completing the second phase of the project by responding to additional questions that have been raised by Faster Computing. Members of the company have asked about process monitoring and management, which you’ll learn more about this week.
Monitoring and Managing Processes
Your experience with Linux has taught you that it’s not uncommon for systems to run for months or even years without a single reboot. You know that in Windows, whenever updates are installed—or if the system is “acting up”—a common troubleshooting tactic is to reboot. But in Linux, it’s seldom necessary to reboot, and you have found that rebooting can cause issues in a production environment. With this in mind, it will be critical for Faster Computing to be able to monitor and manage processes. There are many tools available for this, such as Top, which shows an overview of the main running processes on a system.
Faster Computing will also need to understand how the logging process works in Linux. When there’s a system problem or failure, the logs can lead to the source of the problem. Without logs, troubleshooting certain issues would be difficult or impossible.
Faster Computing was impressed with your presentation. The company is interested in moving forward with the project, but the senior management team has responded to the presentation with the following questions and concerns:
(12.3.2: Describe the implementation of controls.)
(10.1.2: Gather project requirements to meet stakeholder needs.)
(12.4.1: Document how IT controls are monitored.)
(2.3.2: Incorporate relevant evidence to support the position.)
(10.1.3: Define the specifications of the required technologies.)
The deliverable for this phase of the project is a memo. There is no minimum or maximum page requirement, but all of the questions must be fully answered with sufficient detail. The recommended format is to respond to the questions in a bulleted format. Provide sufficient detail to fully address the questions. You must cite at least two quality sources.
(1.2.3: Explain specialized terms or concepts to facilitate audience comprehension.)
Create a memorandum template with a header of your own design or choosing, brief introduction, addresses Faster Computing, Inc’s questions, and summarizes your position on adopting the specific version of Linux.
(1.4.3: Write concise and logical sentences in standard academic English that clarify relationships among concepts and ideas.)
Your memorandum should not include spelling or grammatical errors. Any Linux commands must be displayed in lower case. Information technology acronyms (e.g., SSH or FTP) should be explained for the reader.
