Chapter 18. Network Performance Anxiety

In This Chapter

  • Understanding performance problems

  • Looking at bottlenecks

  • Developing a procedure for solving performance problems

  • Monitoring performance

  • Implementing other tips for speeding up your network

The term network performance refers to how efficiently the network responds to users' needs. Obviously, any access to resources that involves the network is slower than similar access that doesn't involve the network.

However, it shouldn't take much longer. If it does, you have a network performance problem.
