BigAdmin can be a tough place to find information. It's big, it's community driven, and it's trying to satisfy the needs of a variety of customers. It's your best friend -- and, sometimes, your best friend can be incredibly frustrating to work with.
So let me be your BigAdmin search engine, and point you to a great document you might not know about -- the N1 SPS Usage Best Practices Guide (PDF). Peter Charpentier and Toli Kuznets, the authors, have compiled a bunch of great information here to help you get the most of out N1 SPS software. And it's short and sweet -- 31 pages total. Not even long enough to put you to sleep.
The two sections of this guide that got me interested?
- CLUI Command Deciphering (p. 12, despite what it says in the table of contents) - This section breaks down the N1 SPS command line syntax, mapping out the architecture of the CLI.
- Modeling (p. 17) - This section describes two approaches to modeling your applications in N1 SPS -- essentially, how you break down your application into distinct parts, then capture those parts as SPS objects.
