Angry Requirements for a job advert

Hi everyone,

I was perusing through job columns in one of the dalies and came across an IT network specialist job with two of the requirements being:
  1. Manage and monitor the internet connections, ensure bandwidth availability for critical applications such as video conferencing and voice traffic, analyse any unusual usage patterns and intervene to resolve any problems or incorrect usage of the available bandwidth.
  1. Collect statistics on performance indicators and post monthly reports to the intranet in a format that can be easily understood by staff.

I was wondering how these two could be tackled by using linux. My initial thinking was that the first one could be solved by having a bandwidth manager (like MTRG) on a linux gateway.

The second requirement seems vague to me (or maybe I just don't understand it).

Could anyone have a better angle to this?

As for the how-to part, I have no clue. I haven't enough experience with linux to configure it to do that, but I'm sure it's possible. As for the second part, to that I do have a clue. If you've got a linux machine doing the main part of the job, it should be by default or by easily configured to collect statistics on whatever they mean by "performance indicators." You would then take the statistics and personally compile them into a report that you would publish on the LAN in whatever manner they want. Much of it I'me sure they will inform you exactly what formats they want or else they will tell you to "have fun with it."
