Your mission: achieve the highest levels of performance for your systems (and make sure your SysAdmin is celebrated this SysAdmin Day).

 

THWACKsters, before we can launch this mission, we need to go through a launch status check. We’ve never lost a THWACKster on a mission, and we’re sure not going to lose one on my watch! Failure is not an option.

 

When I call out the system you give me a go/no go, got it?

 

Applications? Go! Everything has been checked with cross-stack data correlation.

 

Servers? Go! We’re seeing all green on our AppStack™ Dashboard!

 

Virtual machines? Go! VMAN shows that we resolved the sprawl issues we were seeing during testing. 

 

Storage? Go! Storage Resource Monitor shows we have plenty of capacity for this mission.

 

All systems go!

 

Catch you on the flip side.
