Network assets are typically distributed over a wide area. Since managers cannot always physically scour the network to identify a faulty component, prior information is needed to structure an adequate response mechanism. Putting in a process around collecting this information should be a critical planning point for network managers.
Planning for Turbulent Waters
When a network component fails, there are five sequential parts to any remediation process. These sequential parts include:
- Knowing the components present in the problem area.
- Knowing what has malfunctioned.
- Devising a solution.
- Delivering the solution.
- Maintaining results.
