In this course we are going to help you prepare for the Linux Professional Institute LPIC-1 201 exam, this course being the first in a a series of three for this exam. In this course, we look at monitoring, networking, and system messages which relate to the exam objective 200, 205, and 206. Starting with monitoring, the course will guide you through data collection with the package sysstat before looking at graphical representation with collectd. With that done, we learn to monitor services with Nagios. Then we look at Networking and even configure our own Wireless Access Point. With networking done, we turn to Bacula as a backup solution on the network and look at how we can message users who refuse to log off. This is a full and descriptive course for the Network Administrator who is looking for that next step.
