You work as an administrator for .com. During the rollout phase of a new marketing campaign, Sandra, the systems administrator for a small advertising firm, received complaints from employees stating that they could not access applications hosted on the server. About the same time alerts were generated. The servers running MetaFrame Presentation Server and hosting applications ceased to function. Upon reviewing historical reports from Resource Manager, Sandra spotted a gradual decrease in available memory on the server over the course of several months. Further, a marked decrease in the amount of memory available was noted just before a new campaign rollout when a higher than average number of users were accessing graphic design and project management applications. After this discovery Sandra immediately rebooted the server in an attempt to release the memory that was consumed by the graphics design and project management applications. What are two important changes Sandra should implement to decrease the likelihood of this or a similar incident happening again? (Choose two.)
Implement a preventive maintenance schedule that includes rebooting the servers on a weekly basis.
Lower the Available Bytes and Committed Bytes counters thresholds so warnings will be given prior to memory reaching critical levels.
