Ok, every smart sysadmin should monitor their network. This way the clients and staff do not have to inform you if something is down before you know yourself. Common sense, right? Hopefully so! I make sure that when things go down I am in the know. If I'm not, then I am not doing my job effectively. Just to state... I always know!

Starting with a new company back in 2001 threw me into a slight Windows and heavy Linux environment. We had an Exchange server for internal email and a client still running NT4. Although, production servers were linux. And I use that term loosely since most of them were on Cobalt servers. Back then, Cobalt did not mean linux/redhat truly, but a form of a redhat based OS was there. The directory structure of where things lived were not necessarily in the standard places. Although, it was still linux and fairly easy to adapt.
