3: Proactive Approach

World-class infrastructures employ a proactive approach to identify and prevent potential problems impacting performance and availability. Marginal infrastructures are forced to take a more reactive approach toward problem solving. For example, a proactive strategy may use the analysis of meaningful utilization metrics to predict when an out-of-capacity condition is likely to occur. Armed with this information, technicians can then decide whether to add more capacity or to reschedule or reduce workloads to prevent outages or performance problems. A reactive approach allows no time to identify these conditions and make proactive decisions. Other performance and capacity indicators such as memory swaps and bandwidths can similarly be analyzed to proactively identify and prevent bottlenecks and outages.
