Tools to tame complexity and eliminate inefficiency...
From the home PC user to the most elite systems architect, everyone yearns for expanded bandwidth. OPTIMIZING BANDWIDTH, by Michele Petrovsky, offers a thorough grounding not only in bandwidth basics, but also in the implications imposed by the usage of communications media, network topographies and extent, and server and client applications.
Accessible to those without technical backgrounds, as well as the most seasoned professional, this book tackles heavy-duty bandwidth topics, including how to:
· Grasp bandwidth basics, from TCP/IP through hardware, software, and connectivity
· Increase usable bandwidth on many platforms
· Choose optimal channels and topography
· Maximize bandwidth by changing the configuration of connections, switches, protocols, interfaces, and operating systems
· Configure client/server apps and Web browsers for peak efficiency
· Perform network "angioplasty" for improved circulation
OPTIMIZING BANDWIDTH examines real-world scenarios, benchmarking, and monitoring these both before and after the implementation of bandwidth tweaks, in order to offer readers down-to-earth suggestions on how to configure their own bandwidth resources more efficiently.
