I need to speak tomorrow the network engineer and I would like to understand his so apologise for the Dummy question:
In the school we have a cab with a 24 port Netgear manageable switch with an admin and curriculum VLAN settings.
Usually, as I over heard, in the morning and around 4.30pm there are a slowdown period on the computers which connect to this switch.
No one could track this back yet. Questions:
- What is the best way to track back this slowdown
- Would it be a temporary solution to physical separate the two network with 2 switches
- If that would work how can I link them together to be able to see the curriculum from the admin side.
- Do I need an extra router then?
Too many questions but I have no clue where to start and the gentleman will be paid by hours... can you see where I am coming from?:)
Could you guide me in the right direction please? Any comment would be appreciated and please send links if you down vote the question:)
Update: It turned out that one room could not get IP addresses after deploying OS to them so it was overloaded? The server was idle with an 5% in the other room. Needs to find out the IP addresses of the switches and see what are the settings. So we can see what went wrong.
thanks for the suggestions
