as far as disk scans, you're welcome to unmount and fsck it whenever you see fit. You should never need to though.

There are plenty of standards, but you've not asked about anything that should be standardized.
ok, so what is the list of standards?

There is no list. what do you actually want information about? You can't learn UNIX administration from a few pills or injections.

I've got about 18 years with a combination of UNIX flavors, HP/IBM/SOLARIS/DEc. This is my first take at Linux. I am trying to isolate the presentation layer sitting on top of Cisco UCS blades (b200 m3 es2680's) for an EMR implementation. We're using RHEL 6.3, VMware 5.0 and vSphere 5.1. I just got a vSphere client gui installed on my desktop. Will be developing a "gold" copy of the OS for supporting production, non-production and DR implementations with several databases (environments) installed to support a SDLC. Got an email for RHEL systems admin course, I think I'll try that route to get familiar with RHEL. Thanks for the quick reply anyway.

thanks alot for every gentleman replied trying to help,, I really gained a brilliant advises

@acid_kewpie: cool down a bit mate , you suggested to follow log files while I just had an un-logged network problem

the connection was having a lot of drops which was causing slowness and connection delay with only one particular AIX server ,, the connection from/to my server is perfect with all other servers, so I was suspecting that the problem is from AIX side till I forced them to restart them server

but after wasting lot of time,, I thought to have a try and restarted my network service, things came to be fine and normal (yet no any info in logs)

then after some time,, I faced another network dropping problem again but in another situation (and yet no any info in the logs)

after contacting redhat support since I have a support contract, they replied with no solution other than asking to update bug fixes and the OS in general to RHEL5.8 since am using RHEL5.3

thats why am asking for routines to reduce such failures.. anyways, chaps here had responded with a brilliant advises which are so useful in my opinion


now I need a recommended monitoring software to be used on Windows environment to monitor my Linux servers (I have a 42inch screen connected to a standard Win PC) which I wanna use in graphical monitoring tool, can you help me in this please ?

If you are happy to use a browser to see the monitoring, there are lots of tools like Nagios/Cacti, OpenNMS, Zabbix, Zenoss etc.
They can all monitor *nix & MS (eg via SNMP) and output web pages (AFAIK).
Not sure how many can run the server SW on MS.

You should setup OS monitoring tools like Groundworks to constantly monitor your servers configured to send them events and also email you if there are any problems. You need to be actively looking for issues that can lead to a problem, not sit around and wait for something to happen.
