As a user group leader myself I know how hard it is to secure good speakers on a consistent basis. Sometimes my group members are even forced to listen to me present (yet they keep coming back).
Heck, I will let just about anybody speak to my group.
Well is seems the great shaparone of “Microsoft Partner Groups”, Mike Iem, has done it again. Every year he starts off worried he won’t get enough good content for his 5W50 series and every year he out does himself. Seriously folks, watch some of the past stuff and be amazed at the quality of the content and speakers on this webcasts. You won’t be sorry. So from the “how in the world did he secure her to speak category” I bring you Mike’s latest catch:
How do you rapidly identify the source of network performance issues when you are working with a limited budget? Using free tools such as Network Monitor, Wireshark, nMap and the SysInternals Toolset, you can decrease the time it takes to identify the cause of performance problems and get the network back up to speed. In this webcast, Laura Chappell focuses on network basic monitoring methods and traffic patterns that indicate problems located at the client, infrastructure devices or the server. You will actually see evidence of a failing switch and improperly configured client. Learn to troubleshoot faster and more effectively.
