B.define SLA as a custom property in the Orion database, and populate it with the correct SLA values
C.export the charts to a visual editing tool and hand draw the SLA level on the charts
D.use SQL Reporting Services to export the data
Answer: B

Q: 7
Over the course of 24 hours, a node was sent 200 ping requests in an effort to monitor its availability.
Of those 200 ping requests there were:
100 responses of less than 10ms
50 responses of greater than 20ms
50 requests with noresponses
What was the availability of that node during this period of time?
Answer: C

Q: 8
