OVERVIEW

Short Description of network, computers, technical systems at agency,


further detailed in the rest of the document.

Example:

I&I is a seventy staff person incorporation. “They currently have 10


computers that are networked to a server running Windows NT. They are
sharing a 384K SDSL internet connection, and have a website and hosted
email under the domain name of I&I

Overall, I&I has computers ranging from five year old Pentiums to new PIII
computers, though most of their computers are 2-3 years old.

Their network is also showing its age, the wiring is all CAT5 but is not
organized in any way, and is chaotically connect to the hubs in the back
room. The server is having a few problems, crashing occassionaly and losing
print jobs, but overall has been functioning well for the last couple of years.
The hubs (2 - 8 po’rt) are both 10Mbps, and are completely full, though there
is a few slots available on the DSL router.

EXCHANGE PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZER

(Exchange 5.5 Only)


During recovery, the Performance Optimizer ensures that the recovery server is tuned properly. Hardware
being equal, performance should be similar after a full restore that reinstalls Exchange to a recovery
server. Note that the Performance Optimizer log stored in c:\winnt\system32\perfopt.log does not reveal
the specific settings chosen during optimization.
