Monitoring Network Traffic, Behavior and Administration
This course is included in our On-demand training solution.
Network management includes knowledge of the traffic within a network and the metrics of network performance such as jitter, delay, packet loss, and link loss. SPAN allows an admin to perform packet analysis on traffic, while IP SLA allows an admin to set up probes to watch network behavior. Each of these technologies represent an important tool for network engineers. This course covers SPAN, NTP, IP SLA, and AAA for use within and at the edge of the WAN. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Cisco exam Building Cisco Service Provider Next-Generation Networks Part 1 exam (640-875 SPNGN1). This exam counts toward the CCNA Service Provider certification.
This course is targeted at networking engineers who must interface with Cisco IOS, IOS XR and IOS XE devices. Additionally, those who have a need to understand technologies used in the service provider realm will benefit.
