How to Investigate Server Load: Part 2
In this second tutorial on server load, we outline the steps that should be taken when investigating where server load originates and what may be causing your server to become overloaded.

How to Simplify Working With Kernels
What Is A Kernel?
The kernel is a piece of software that is at the core of an operating system. It usually has complete control over all of the server systems. It is normally the first program loaded after the bootloader has completed its tasks. The kernel then handles the rest of the start-up tasks as well as i/o requests from the system’s software. It then translates those requests into hardware instructions for the CPU (central processing unit).
How to Check Server Load on a Windows Server
What Does Server Load Mean?
Checking a server’s load allows us to evaluate server resources and confirm they are sufficient for any running application. It enables us to troubleshoot slow performance and reliably pinpoint any server resource that may need attention.
Useful Command Line for Linux Admins
