Unit 1. Assignment 1. Homework

1. Why is the CPU the most important component in a computer?

The CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. It does all the processing for the entire system. Without it, your computer can't do anything. It has nothing to process information. It's just dead without it.

2. What number does a bit that is turned on represent? What number does a bit that is turned off represent?

When a bit is turned on, it represents a "1". When it is turned off, it represents a "0". The exact value depends on where the bit is within the byte it is part of.

In the binary number 0000 0001, the last bit is set to 1 and represents the number 1.

3. What would you call a device that works with binary data?

Digital Data is data that is stored in binary, and a Digital Device is any device that works with binary data

4. What are the words that make up a high-level programming language called?

The words that make up a high-level programming language are known as key words or reserved words.

5. What are the short words that are used in assembly language called?


6. What is the difference between a complier and an interpreter?

A compiler translates code from a source language (e.g. C, C++, and Java) to a target language, which can then be executed by a (virtual or physical) machine.

An interpreter reads code in an interpreted language (e.g. PHP, Perl, and Java Script) and directly executes the contained instructions.

7. What type of software controls the internal operations of the computer’s hardware?

The programs that control and manage the basic operations of a computer's hardware are generally referred to system software.

Nfs (Network File System)

...NFS (Network File system) IPtables NFS protocol was developed by SUN microsystems using UNIX. NFS allows severs to share local directories with client systems. NFS runs on UNIX, DOS, Microsoft, VMS, Linux and more. NFS allows a client to access files on a remote server. The client user is usually unaware on the storage location on the file they are using. NFS reduces the storage needs used on the client and aids in the administration work load. With an NFS the file system stored on a remote server and the directory is shared over a local network. The server has a large capacity disk drive and device so that copies for file can be backed up with a problem. Diskless systems boot from the file server and load the system from a fileserver. Because a diskless client doesn’t require much to run a file server system you can use older machine as clients. Other options for NFS for Linux are netboot and dataless system. Netboot uses TFTP (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) that runs PXE (Preboot Execution Environment) a boot server for Intel. Dataless systems allow the user to store all files remotely but only Linux based applications can be kept on the disk. IPtables are composed of two components netfilter and IPtables. Netfilter a set of tables that hold rules the kernel uses to control network packet filtering. IPtables set up, maintain, and displays the rules stored by netfilter. Rules use one more categories matches or classified with single action. The rule that applies to......

...Introduction: Global Positioning System, GPS Summary of key findings: Google,, Wikipedia, In a nutshell describing GPS - A navigational system involving satellites and computers that can determine the latitude and longitude of a receiver on Earth by computing the time difference for signals from different satellites to reach the receiver. Today, it is widely used by the civilian public for both commercial and recreational use. In addition to GPS, other systems are in use or under development. The Russian Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) was in use by only the Russian military, until it was made fully available to civilians in 2007. The navigational signals transmitted by GPS satellites encode a variety of information including satellite positions, the state of the internal clocks, and the health of the network. These signals are transmitted on two separate carrier frequencies that are common to all satellites in the network. Two different encodings are used: a public encoding that enables lower resolution navigation, and an encrypted encoding used by the U.S. military. So in 20 years you can just imagine where this will lead… As of December 2013, there are 32 satellites in the GPS constellation. The additional satellites improve the precision of GPS receiver calculations by providing redundant measurements. With the increased number of satellites, the constellation was changed to a......

Network Management System

...Network management systems are giving IT professional an advantage on their own networks. This is giving them access to software and hardware at a moment’s notice without leaving the comfort of their desk or home. The NMS consists of a set of software and hardware tools that is integrated into the network. This management system is able to identify devices that are on the network. The NMS can also be used to monitor all devices and rate how the device is performing and if it is matching the device expectations. This system can track the performance of the bandwidth, if there was any packet loss, and the performance of all the routers/switches. The network management system will give the IT department notifications if anything seems to be off with the network. This will give the IT personnel time to isolate or fix before the problem effects the network (Hale, 2013). Cisco is a big company that has a very large network. They manage millions of endpoint devices and with a huge network that require a significant amount of monitoring from the IT department. “Cisco Connected Grid Network Management System is a software platform that helps to enable a clear separation between communications network management and utility operational applications. These include Distribution Management System (DMS), Outage Management System (OMS), and Meter Data Management (MDM)” (Cisco Connected Grid Network Management System, 2014). This management system can monitor multiple networks and all......

...circuit-switching network is the telephone system, which links together wire segments to create a single unbroken line for each telephone call. Packet switching: Refers to protocols in which messages are divided into packets before they are sent. Each packet is then transmitted individually and can even follow different routes to its destination. Leased line: A permanent telephone connection between two points set up by a telecommunications common carrier. Typically, leased lines are used by businesses to connect geographically distant offices. Time-division multiplexing:  a type of multiplexing that combines data streams by assigning each stream a different time slot in a set. TDM repeatedly transmits a fixed sequence of time slots over a single transmission channel. T-carrier system: the name of the combination of different physical line standards(DSO, DSI, DS3 and others), plus circuits switches that use time division multiplexing (TDM) features, that together allowed the phone company to create digital circuits from end to end and create leased line services for customers.

Principles of Network and System Administration

...Chapter (Self-test Objective) Question # 1: What kinds of issues does system administration cover? Answer: As we discussed in class, a Network System Administrator has to be knowledgeable, has to have customer service skills to be stay calm & collected when a complaint occurs, and must be able to rectify the problem. As the course text book “Principles of Network and System Administration”, by author Mark Burgess mentions in chapter #1 section 1.6 The challenges of system administration : “System administration is not just about installing operating systems. It is about planning and designing an efficient community of computers so that real users will be able to get their jobs done. That means: • Designing a network which is logical and efficient. • Deploying large numbers of machines which can be easily upgraded later. • Deciding what services are needed. • Planning and implementing adequate security. • Providing a comfortable environment for users. • Developing ways of fixing errors and problems which occur. • Keeping track of and understanding how to use the enormous amount of knowledge which increases every year.” The author also mentions that some of the Network System Administrators are responsible for both the hardware of the network and the computers which it connects, i.e. the cables as well as the computers and some are only responsible for the computers. Most importantly a System Administrator must have an understanding of how data flows from......

...Network Attached Storage Network Attached Storage (NAS) is a dedicated hard drive which is set up with its own network address and provides file-level data storage services to other devices on the network. It allows both programming and files to be served faster because they are not competing for processor resources. NAS usually configured with a web browser and do not require a keyboard, mouse or monitor. Unlike other external hard drives, NAS has a processor. Some NAS devices will run using standard operating system like MS Windows, many other NAS devices use their own proprietary operating system. A NAS can store any data that appears in form of files, including email boxes, Web content, remote system backups, etc… Overall the use of a NAS parallels those traditional file servers. NAS devices come in many varieties depending on you build it or purchase it from a vendor. The speed is usually 1GB Ethernet connection but it can be changed to multiple GB to 10GB, fiber optic by adding PCI-e network cards. The capacity range also can be varied. If you have a port replication and add-on hardware drive controller cards, there really isn’t a limit on size. For example: if you have a board with 6 SATA ports which can be replicated (1 to 5 port) allowing 30 drives to be attached. Then if 3TB drives were used in RAID 50 that would be 72TB of storage capacity. As far as fault tolerance, RAID 50 can be quite stable if it’s set-up correctly. While RAID 10 is one of the best set-ups...

Network Attached Storage System

...35%-50%/year decreases in the cost per byte. In recent years, the amount of storage sold almost doubled each year and is expected to sustain annual growth of at least 60%. Secondary storage has a healthy place in future computer systems. While many storage products are directly attached to personal computers, most disk array products (65% and rising) are deployed in local area network file servers. This centralization of storage resources enables effective sharing, better administrative control and less redundancy. However, it also increases dependence on network and file server performance. With the emergence of high-performance cluster systems based on commodity personal computers and scalable network switching, rapidly increasing demands on storage performance are anticipated. Specifically, storage performance must cost-effectively scale with customer investments in client processors, network links and storage capacity. Unfortunately, current distributed file system architectures severely limit scalable storage. In current distributed file systems, all storage bytes are copied through file server machines between peripheral buses (typically SCSI) and client LANs. In essence, these file server machines act as application-level inter-network routers, converting namespaces (disk block versus file range) and protocol layers (SCSI versus RPC/UDP/IP). This is a critical limitation for cost-effective scalable storage. Specifically, the......

...Networking operating system It is the software that runs on a server and enables the server to manage data, users, groups, security, applications, and other networking functions.[2] The network operating system is designed to allow shared file and printer access among multiple computers in a network, typically a local area network (LAN), a private network or to other networks. The most popular network operating systems are Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows Server 2008, UNIX, Linux, Mac OS X, and Novell NetWare. Multiuser File Sharing A network operating system manages concurrent requests from clients and provides the security necessary in a multiuser environment. A file sharing component is installed in each client machine that interacts with the server to share files and applications as well as devices on the network such as printers, faxes and modems. Peer-to-Peer In a Peer-to-peer network operating system users are allowed to share resources and files located on their computers and access shared resources from others. A peer-to-peer network sets all connected computers equal; they all share the same abilities to utilize resources available on the network. Client/Server Client/server network operating systems allow the network to centralize functions and applications in one or more dedicated file servers. The server is the center of the system, allowing access to resources and instituting security. The network operating system provides the......
