When is the most appropriate time to measure network operations to establish a network performance baseline?
- at random times during a 10 week period, so that abnormal traffic levels can be detected
- during quiet vacation periods, so that the level of non-data traffic can be determined
- whenever high network use is detected, so that how the network performs under stress can be monitored
- at the same time each day across a set period of average working days, so that typical traffic patterns can be established
Answers Explanation & Hints:
The purpose of establishing a network performance baseline is to provide a reference of normal or average network use to enable data traffic anomalies to be detected and then investigated. Network operations that are not average, or are not normal, cannot be used to establish a network performance baseline.
