System Admin Tools

A brief overview of several sets of system administrator tools, why they are needed and how they can be useful to a regular computer user.
Every user whose work is somehow connected with a computer knows who the system administrator is and understands that this work requires knowledge in the field of information technology.

But often, knowledge alone is not enough and in order to perform diagnostics and restore the normal operation of computer technology, both ordinary and special tools are required.

Sooner or later, home users also have to deal with the maintenance of their computer. At a minimum, this is disassembling, cleaning and replacing individual components. A screwdriver is often enough for this, but when it comes to troubleshooting, this is no longer enough.

In order to measure the battery voltage on the motherboard, you need a multimeter, which is also useful for checking the voltage of the power supply and detecting breaks.

To restore a PC that has torn off from the front panel, wiring often needs a simple soldering iron, and craftsmen can even solder swollen capacitors on the motherboard or in the power supply.

To transfer the Internet cable or simply replace the connector, many have to apply to the provider and wait a few days for the master to arrive. All this can be done independently in a matter of minutes with crimping pliers on hand.

In general, a certain set of tools must be with the system administrator and a technically savvy user. In addition, many of the tools accounted for in the household.

It is very cool when everything you need will be in one place, and not scattered in different boxes. This task is solved by the system administrator’s toolkits, in which each tool has its own place, and thanks to a convenient case, you can take it with you to a friend or client.

These sets are so diverse that everyone can find the right one for their needs and budget. Here are an example of several options that are popular among system administrators.
