At 9:00 am each morning, all of the virtual desktops in a VDI implementation become extremely slow and/or unresponsive. The outage lasts for around 10 minutes, after which everything runs properly again. The administrator has traced the problem to a lab of thin clients that are all booted at 9:00 am each morning. Which of the following is the MOST likely cause of the problem and the BEST solution? (Select TWO).

  1. Add guests with more memory to increase capacity of the infrastructure.

  2. A backup is running on the thin clients at 9am every morning.

  3. Install more memory in the thin clients to handle the increased load while booting.

  4. Booting all the lab desktops at the same time is creating excessive I/O.

  5. Install 10-Gb uplinks between the hosts and the lab to increase network capacity.

  6. Install faster SSD drives in the storage system used in the infrastructure.

  7. The lab desktops are saturating the network while booting.

  8. The lab desktops are using more memory than is available to the host systems.

Question No: 25 – (Topic 1)

A security consultant is conducting a network assessment and wishes to discover any legacy backup Internet connections the network may have. Where would the consultant find this information and why would it be valuable?

  1. This information can be found in global routing tables, and is valuable because backup connections typically do not have perimeter protection as strong as the primary connection.

  2. This information can be found by calling the regional Internet registry, and is valuable because backup connections typically do not require VPN access to the network.

  3. This information can be found by accessing telecom billing records, and is valuable because backup connections typically have much lower latency than primary connections.

  4. This information can be found by querying the network’s DNS servers, and is valuable because backup DNS servers typically allow recursive queries from Internet hosts.

Answer: A
