About a year ago, I started a study of emergency incidents that our customers filed with us. What I found was really surprising, and defied conventional wisdom. I learned a lot about preventing emergencies. I just published the outcome as a white paper, including checklists that you can use and modify for your own servers. (Analysis of the nature and causes of emergencies is due to be published in the next issue of IOUG’s quarterly SELECT journal.)
