STEP 1: LAN Modeling
The following tutorials will lead you through creating the WAN simulation. You will be creating a WAN that spans several cities along the East Coast. You will be simulating the network with no back load and then duplicating the scenario with a back load and analyzing the results.
Open the IT Guru 15 tutorials. Expand the tutorials link. Expand the basic tutorials link. Expand the LAN Modeling link and complete the overview, setting up the scenario, configuring applications, building the network, background load, collecting statistics, and comparing results sections.
STEP 2: Screenshot
After completing the IT Guru 15 LAN Modeling tutorials, take a screen shot using Ctrl + PrintScrn or another screen capture utility. Arrange the screen and resize windows so that all items can be seen. The screenshot should contain the following:
final network configuration graph of overlaid results of average point to point utilization graph of the overlaid results of average FTP download response time
Click on image to enlarge.
Paste the screenshot into a Word document.
Include your analysis on the backload in the Word document containing your screen shot of the final results.
How is background traffic affecting the FTP traffic? Theorize possible solutions. What would be your recommendations from the analysis?
STEP 3: Submit to the Dropbox
Submit the completed Word document to the weekly iLab Dropbox.
