Assignment 2: Resolving Performance Problems with the Network
XYZ Inc. has a small office with 80 users in California. The office employs a file and print server that caters to user requests.
Recently users have complained that it takes a lot of time to retrieve files from the server. In addition users have also complained that at times it takes a while to service print requests.
A network administrator of XYZ Inc. says that this is occurring because the network is not functioning at performance levels. What do you think are some possibilities for the cause of the problem? If making assumptions, please state what those assumptions are. What do you think would be possible solutions? Include a drawing of the topology that should be used and what types of networks you propose would work here and the accompanying justification.
