A Presentation on Servers & Splunk

  2. 2. WHAT ARE SERVERS O A server is an computer program that accepts and responds to request made by another program called client. They are the storage block of services that a user need. O Servers committed to the specific task are called COMMITTED SERVER. Example: DNS,FTP etc.
  3. 3. NEED OF SERVERS O All time access to all users. O The hardware & software is upgraded according to time. O All information is at one place. O No need of technical expertization of any server related term because the entire tasks are done by server personnel. O Data processing is fast. O Can track record of accessing data.
  5. 5. HTTPD O Its actually the Apache Web Server. It was launched in 1995. O HTTPD server works on HTTP function as a request-response protocol in a client- server computing model. O About 51.6% servers all over the world uses HTTPD.
  6. 6. FTP O File Transfer Protocol(FTP) is a standard Internet Protocol for transmitting files between computers on internet over TCP/IP. O Clients initiate conversations with servers by requesting to download a file. Using FTP, a client can upload, download, delete, rename, move and copy files on a server. O Content available without login, also known as anonymous FTP. O FTP sessions work in passive or active modes.
  7. 7. NFS O The Network File System (NFS) is a client/server application that lets a computer user view and optionally store and update files on a remote computer as though they were on the user's own computer. O NFS uses Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) to route requests between clients and servers. O The NFS protocol is one of several distributed file system standards for network-attached storage (NAS). O NFS was originally developed by Sun Microsystems in the 1980's and is now managed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
  8. 8. NIS O NIS (Network Information System) is a network naming and administration system for smaller networks that was developed by Sun Microsystems. O Using NIS, each host client or server computer in the system has knowledge about the entire system. O NIS is a UNIX-based program.
  9. 9. NTP O NTP (Network Time Protocol) is a network protocol that enables you to synchronize clocks on devices over a network O The NetBurner NTP server obtains highly accurate time by synchronizing it’s local clock to GPS satellites O NTP Servers are generally categorized in to several tiered categories- Stratum 0,1 & 2
  10. 10. SAMBHA O Samba is a free software re- implementation of the SMB/CIFS networking protocol, and was originally developed by Andrew Tridgell. O Samba allows file and print sharing between computers running Microsoft Windows and computers running Unix O Samba provides file and print services for various Microsoft Windows clients and can integrate with a Microsoft Windows Server
  11. 11. SSH O Secure Shell (SSH) is a cryptographic network protocol for operating network services securely over an unsecured network. O SSH was designed as a replacement for Telnet and for unsecured remote shell protocols such as the Berkeley rlogin, rsh, and rexec protocols. O SSH uses public-key cryptography to authenticate the remote computer and allow it to authenticate the user
  12. 12. TELNET O Telnet is an application layer protocol used on the Internet or local area networks to provide a bidirectional interactive text-oriented communication. User data is interspersed in- band with Telnet control information in an 8-bit byte oriented data connection over the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). O Telnet was developed in 1969 beginning with RFC 15, extended in RFC 854, and standardized as Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Internet Standard STD 8, one of the first Internet standards.
  13. 13. MAIL SERVER O The terms mail server, mail exchanger, and MX host may also refer to a computer performing the MTA function. O A mail server is a computer that serves as an electronic post office for email.
  14. 14. DHCP O The TCP/IP protocols include a DHCP protocol. It automatically assigns and keeps tabs of IP addresses and any "subnetworks" that require them. O DHCP is a part of the "application layer," which is just one of the several TCP/IP protocols. All of the processing and figuring out of what to send to whom happens virtually instantly
  15. 15. DNS O The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical decentralized naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. O The Domain Name System has been in use since the 1980s.
  16. 16. SPLUNK O Splunk is an American multinataional corporation that produces software for searching, monitoring, and analyzing machine-generated big data O Splunk has a mission of making machine data accessible across an organization by identifying data patterns providing metrics, diagnosing problems and providing intelligence for business operations
