  1. What is the air force instructions series that covers NM?
    33 series
  2. What does AFPD 33-1, info resources mgmt establist policy on?
    Acquiring, planning, and managing its info resources
  3. What actions does AFI 33-1, Base-level planning and implementation outline?
    Standardized mgmt practices and tells how to manage planning and implementation of communications and info systems and the base level infrastructure
  4. What are the 3 areas of distributed responsibility does DICC consist of?
    Global, regional, and local levels.
  5. What is NM?
    mechanisms for monitoring, control, and coordination of resources within the open systems interconnection enviroment, and osi protocol standards for communicating info pertinent to those resources
  6. What is a NM server?
    A bundle of application software designed to significantly improve network efficiency and productivity. The network mgmt server is a network server that runs snmp based mgmt applications
  7. Where should the NM server be located?
    Area strictly controlled by the NCC
  8. Briefly describe the three most common NM architectures
    centralized(has NM platform on one system at a location thats responsible for all NM duties) Hierarchical(uses multiple systems, with one acting as a central server and others working as clients) Distributed(combines the two, multiple peer platforms)
  9. what are the 4 levels of activity that one must know before applying mgmt to specific services or devices
    Inactive, reactive, interactive, proactive
  10. This is the case when no monitoring is accomplished
  11. This is where network support personnel react to a problem after it has occurred yet no monitoring has been applied
  12. This is where you are monitoring components but must interactively trblsht to eliminate side-effect alarms and isolate problems to a root cause
  13. This is where automated monitoring components provide interactive problem analysis, giving a root cause alarm for the problem at-hand, and automatic restorative processes are in place whenever possible to minimize downtime
  14. What is configuration mgmt?
    Process of obtaining data from the network and using that data to manage the setup of all managed network devices
  15. 2 features of an NMS that alleviate manually configuring a network's devices
    auto discovery and auto mapping
  16. What does performance mgmt consist of?
    the facilities needed to evaluate the behavior of network objects and the effectiveness of communications activities
  17. List the steps you must take to provide accurate performance mgmt
    gather statistical info (tread analysis, maintain and examine logs of system state (history), Determine system performance under natural and artificial conditions, alter system modes of operation for the purpose of conducting performance mgmt
  18. What are the 2 functional categories of performance mgmt? Describe each.
    Monitoring-tracks historical data by tracking activities on the net, Tuning-Deals strictly with the adjustment of the parameters on the network devices to improve operation
  19. What is security mgmt?
    encompasses protecting sensitive info on devices attached to a data network by controlling access points to that information
  20. 2 subsections of security management
    network security and nms security
  21. what is fault management?
    process of identifying, locating, and correcting network problems (faults)
  22. Fault vs. Error
    Faults are abnormal conditions that require NCC personnel to take action to correct or repair. errors sometimes arise on a normal functioning network and do not necessarily require attention.
