...NT1430 Final Review 1. Know what a swap partition is used for. a. The swap partition is an independent section of the hard disk used solely for swapping; no other files can reside there. Swap partition is used to turn the hard drive into extra RAM. 2. Know what an architecture is, and which are supported by Fedora. a. 32 and 64 bit b. Fedora CDs and DVDs hold programs compiled to run on a specific processor architecture (class of processors, or CPUs) c. There are several that Fedora supports: i. EM64T/AMD64 ii. A 64 bit distribution allows each process to address more than 4 gigabytes of RAM. iii. I383/i686 (Intel x86) iv. X86_64 (AMD64 and Intel EM64T) v. Mac PowerPC (PPC) 3. Know how the root of the file system is represented. a. The root is represented by a / b. Fedora uses the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) file system structure, which defines the names, locations, and permissions for many file types and directories. c. The two most important elements of FHS compliance are: i. Compatibility with other FHS-compliant systems ii. The ability to mount a /usr/ partition as read-only. This is especially crucial, since /usr/ contains common executables and should not be changed by users. In addition, since /usr/ is mounted as read-only, it should be mountable from the CD-ROM drive or from another machine via a read-only NFS mount. 4. Know what the cp command is used for. a.

Nt-1110 Unit 6 Research Paper

...Matt Bristow NT-1110 Unit 6 Research Paper NAS Devices NAS is an acronym for Network-Attached Storage. It is basically a file-level computer built for data storage connected to a computer network providing data access to any computer connected to that network. The speed for any particular NAS device varies from 1 gigabit all the way up to 10 gigabits depending on what upgrades a pc has such as an upgraded network cards. The capacity range for NAS devices also depend solely on the budget set forth. It can be a low range system with 500 gigabytes, all the way up to a wallet-busting 16 terabytes. The fault tolerances when set at RAID 10 are the most stable since more devices can fail while protecting against any potential data loss. The advantages of an NAS device are that since it is a dedicated file storage device, accessing said data is a lot faster than typical in-pc hard drives. Another advantage would be the amount of storage you're capable of having. It far outpaces pc's in storage capabilities because all it is built for is storage. For a family with a lot of pictures or videos, the advantages are that any computer connected to the NAS device can access them. It's a library for any media/documents/or anything else you can think of that can be accessed at any time by any pc connected to it. They might be pricey for a casual pc user but when dealing with multiple pc's connected to a single network, an NAS device would be the perfect option when space becomes an issue...

Lp4 Assignment: Chapter 4 Review Questions

...LP4 Assignment: Chapter 4 Review Questions 1. What is risk management? Why is the identification of risks, by listing assets and their vulnerabilities, so important to the risk management process? Risk management is the process of identifying risk, as represented by vulnerabilities, to an organization’s information assets and infrastructure, and taking steps to reduce this risk to an acceptable level 2. According to Sun Tzu, what two key understandings must you achieve to be successful in battle? According to Sun Tzu, the two key understandings we must achieve to be successful in battle are Know Yourself and know the enemy. Know yourself: First, you must identify, examine, and understand the information and systems currently in place within your organization. This is self-evident. To protect assets, which are defined here as information and the systems that use, store, and transmit information, you must know what they are, how they add value to the organization, and to which vulnerabilities they are susceptible. Once you know what you have, you can identify what you are already doing to protect it. Just because a control is in place does not necessarily mean that the asset is protected. Frequently, organizations implement control mechanisms but then neglect the necessary periodic review, revision, and maintenance. The policies, education and training programs, and technologies that protect information must be carefully maintained and administered to ensure that they......

Caff 321 Chapter 1-4 Review Questions

...MICHELLE LU - 011810966 CAFF 321 CHAPTER REVIEW QUESTIONS (1-4) Chapter 1 1. Why does Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness, say that experiences might bring more satisfaction than durable goods? Do you agree or disagree? Although happiness is not easily defined and it really depends on who you ask and what their degree of happiness is in their life, Gilbert the author of Stumbling on Happiness, explains that experiences might bring more satisfaction than that of durable goods.  With this he is simply stating the fact that happiness is dependent the things you do in life and not the objects. It is the time that you share with friends and family what makes life meaningful and that creates happiness. All the objects in the world that money can buy is meaningless when you don't have anyone to share it with. 2. Harvard economists Alberto Alesina and Paolo Giuliano say that strong family ties imply more reliance on the family as an economic unit that provides goods and services and less on outside institutions such as those found in the market place and government.  Why does household production (doing things together or making things within the home) activity have such an impact on family ties?  Can you give an example from your own family?   Not completely sure if I am answering this question correctly but basically the way I see things, I must say I agree with both economists who say that strong family ties imply more reliance on the family as an economic unit......

Week 2 Chapter 3 & 4 Review Questions

...Week 2 Problems/Exercises: Chapters 3 & 4 Michael LaBarge DeVry University Chapter 3 2. List and describe the common skills and activities of a project manager. Which skill do you think is most important? Why? Common skills of a project manager include: interpersonal skills, leadership skills and technical skills. Interpersonal skills include the skills needed to effectively communicate with others what needs to be done and the process that should be taken to get it done. Leadership skills are important because as the project manager is in charge of the project, they must be able to successfully lead their team from initiation to completion of the project as efficiently as possible. Technical skills are the skills needed to understand all aspects of the system that is to be created or modified and what it takes to make that happen. Common activities of a project manager include: leadership, management, customer relations, technical problem solving, conflict management, team management and risk and change management. I believe that the most important skill that a project manager must possess is leadership. I think that with the right team, the PM can get assistance on the interpersonal and technical aspects of the project. However without the proper leadership, even the best team will ultimately fail, or at least have many difficulties. Also, many of the activities that a project manager must do are leader/management based. 4. Describe the activities performed......
