About this Hands-on Lab

Linux servers are a wealth of information, and they have a number of system tools to aid us in discovering facts and data about our servers and the services we host on them, including what might be wrong with them. In this lab, we’ll reinforce core troubleshooting skills by practicing gathering information from the system itself and related documentation.
