Server Load is expressed in a number format (usually the x.xx format) and this number refers to the number of processes that are waiting in queue to access the processor or processors. This is calculated for a certain time period. It is important to note here that a higher number would mean a decrease in the level of server performance and therefore a smaller number is always preferable.

PHP(.php) – PHP:Hypertext Preprocessor is easy to learn. There are many readymade scripts available. It also helps in producing dynamic web pages and is a general purpose scripting language. It runs on the web server and has to be configured to process PHP code and create web content. It is free of charge. Most web servers and operating systems and platforms can display it.

Using the required code is also simple. You will use the WebControl.asp file with references to each server control. Each control has its own ASP file. Once your references have been created you are only required to write code for each event that you want to take place. Your page form will be handled by the Framework. You simply have to include form start and end asp when you have to code the form tags. It governs all of the necessary hidden fields. The final thing that you will have to do is include the web control.asp. It is the one function that makes sure everything you have created is executed according to your desire. It is applied before rendering control. There will be a number of examples expressing the function.

Find a local background investigations and convince them to give you a half-day ride along to gain firsthand experience. I can not express how valuable it is to see service completed up close and personal as opposed to hearing about it.

Ask questions about times to serve, how to handle the paperwork, what to say to attorneys and what an attorney expects of you. Take a trip with them to the courthouse to view the courthouse services in action also.

You now need to load bigdump.php in your browser. Open your favorite browser and enter the location of bigdump.php (example: http_//www_yourdomain_com/dump/bigdump.php) Once loaded you’ll see the BigDump menu and you should see your database backup listed.

Python (.py) – It is also easy to learn, but is not as widely used as PHP, ASP or even Perl. The disadvantage with this scripting is that it does not have a standard web application framework.

At this point, we know there is some insecurity in this server, as sockets are open by software which we did not install. Tracing the source of this rogue network program is another topic. Deleting the file may solve the immediate issue but rest assured the file and process will return without solving the underlying insecurity.

For most monitoring applications, this is enough to get a basic sanity check on the functioning of the mail server. Some website monitoring services go further by allowing you to design a script to thoroughly test the mail sending process. This more advanced process involves interacting with a POP3 or IMAP4 mail server as well.
