Each people to have car know, change engine oil and change tire help car go smooth and the life-span is more permanent regularly, thus protect existing input. Likewise, take several preventative measure too can help data server of centre run smooth and the life-span is more permanent. And the more important thing is, these measures contribute to preventing the server from presenting stoppage in transit; In some cases, the stoppage in transit of server will result in suffering the huge economic losses soon.
In order to let your server run under the best state, you need to keep the appropriate environment, safeguard and control positively, and make a plan, like that in case the server really breaks down, the staff know how to do.
Keep the good and suitable computer lab environment
Mostly there are advanced apparatuses to control the physical state of the data centre in the large-scale data centre, but a lot of smaller its computer labs of server of company are not in the appropriate temperature or humidity range, or not accomplished due and clean. The marketing commissioner Joe Guenther of TERiX computer service company points out: “The system perhaps can still run under overheated, pass wet, dust too many environments, but they can not reach due service life absolutely, and compared with running under the environmental state that is proposed, easier to be influenced by environmental condition, therefore is cranky frequently. ”
The data centre service line manager Mark Gonsalves of the service company of pollution control says, data centre should arrange kind to clean time of time tables quarter while being every, want, sweep one at least every year under the floor. He says: “The environment is cleaned, the data centre runs to stand up the more smoothly. ” He adds, guarantees the clean environment means, it is unnecessary to change the high apparatus of the cost. He says, if your data centre environment is very dirty, some hardware manufacturers will announce it is invalid to guarantee the hardware.
Positive Prevent trouble before it happens
If adopt preventative maintenance and appropriate control software, can avoid or reduce other a lot of server questions. The products of SEI service company support the manager Chad Peters to say: “You can find early before the question has not appeared yet. ”
Preventative maintenance mainly includes three jobs: Check the wrong daily record carefully, find out the upgraded edition of the firmware or software, and go to computer lab to check. Peters shows, his company checks one to the wrong daily record twice every year. He explains: “Which hard disk have we begun to write the mistake into the daily record? Which fan rotational speed do we have not to reach the due level? Which optic fibre network card we have to begin to present some questions, are some mistakes written into the daily record? If any, then we can change positively, in case that the corresponding part breaks down. ”
You can take this opportunity too just, check firmware and software on the server again while checking the wrong daily record, guarantee not to miss any important upgraded edition. The sale of TERiX Company and commissioner Larry Quinn of the marketing say: “Understand knowing what kind of systems you have, what kind of patch edition operating system of running on it uses. If your scamp work in assets and patch management, has saved the expenses on short terms, but guarantee that will increase the long-term expenses. ”
Preventative maintenance should also include going to data centre to check, guarantee all cables are connected in place, guarantee it is still in situ to manage the apparatus the air flow, guarantee the computer lab keeps the due clean intensity.
Before coming in the next preventative maintenance that plans, you should use and control the solution, so that when the server begins to go wrong, you can receive the alarm as soon as possible. There are complexity and price of a kind in great numbers no solution of one on the market now, so you need, make, compare, find, suitable for the solution that oneself need most by some.
