comment Bandwidth planning for TCP/IP and Ethernet overhead
yes different traffic type would result in different overhead percentages, so it would be nice to see if anybody's done some survey to estimate the ratio based on traffic/app type. Additionally, any simple process to measure this for one's own apps?

Remember the more disks one buys, the more backup-and-recovery strategies need to be applied for each disk.

comment Is Round-Robin DNS “good enough” for load balancing static content?
yeap i know what NLB does. I'm recommending that over DNS RR because a server failure won't cripple half the users.

comment Complete infrastructure capacity planning exercise
I bought the book and found it decent; although it was rather thin for its price and lacking a sense of building new infrastructure for new projects in the enterprise.

Getting a down-vote means disagreement. Getting an up-vote means agreement. It is fundamental mechanics for these sites. If you gladly accept up-votes, you ought to gladly accept down-votes in view that not everybody shares your opinions.

Good remembrance on the "problem solver"; a lot of folks i meet just want an instruction booklet that tells them what to do for every possibly conceivable problem. They don't want to think about what's happening; just gimme the Step 1-to-23 to resolve this issue.

In my experience, most admins just continue to overload on manual clicks, and take longer than ever to complete their work. :-) I think there are different categories of laziness, some are lazy to think and just wanna click brainlessly; some are lazy to click and think to reduce that.

The main effect is admins wasting their time performing repeated manual chores on multiple machines - longer turnarounds - which can impact our development schedule (always never enough).

I don't script just because i "like it". I script because it saves_me_time in the long run. One whole week to setup a server, or use scripts to configure it in one day. You decide.

My point is all these "horrible tasks" they'd still rather do them manually. :-)

yes the scripts i wrote back into those days automated the created of directories, DACLs permissions, IIS site setups, etc. But my colleagues weren't motivated by that. Took one of them two whole months to learn how to write a script function to return a date in string format.

Unfortunately, since i have long gone into a development and consultancy career, the admins i encounter now are mainly those of my customers. I do not always have a chance to make them look bad in front of their management or IT lead :-)
