Networking Technology, Performance Monitoring

I count myself lucky that I had a professor in college who took the time to brainwash us all in the ways of network troubleshooting. To this day, I still jolt awake in a cold sweat hearing his voice chant “physical layer! physical layer!”  As many of you know, the Physical layer is  the first
