Server Maintenance

Usually the task of the system administrator is server maintenance which involves keeping a server updated and running so that the server and the network operates smoothly and efficiently.  Any computer network irrespective of size that is not well maintained will experience application or system failure.  The system administrator should perform preventative maintenance where he or she routinely monitors performance, security and backup procedures.  They typically use automated system monitoring utilities which often come with the server as a package but the administrator still needs to check log files, hard disk utilization, file permissions and redundancy.  The server environment needs to be monitored also as temperature is vital to the correct operation of electronic equipment.

Security and application functionality should also be kept up to date as they are endlessly evolving. Server logs will show any evidence of hacking or security breaches. The antivirus software should be updated by the administrator continuously.

The administrator should also ensure service pack and software updates are installed on the entire network which may have to be done when the server and the computers are not being used after business hours. There are also many other tasks which may need to be completed such as system restoration or hardware repair or upgrades.

A thorough backup plan is very important in case there is a system failure and loss of data. This plan should allow for a speedy recovery ensured by data being constantly backed up. This process should be tested.
