This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
A welcome return of the LCD panel to switches
I mused before in the Sick posting which you can read about here. hard cover published in '95, called Fatal defect, chasing killer computer bugs, by Ivars Peterson. When a major incident has occurred, I have often longed back to viewing the LCD panel on a network device, not only to identify an issue but more importantly to eliminate one. The LCD panel is also a great visualization during diagnostics. I was impressed that Juniper Networks has incorporated a LCD panel in their range of switches! Switches have finally returned to being sick again!
