This section provides a high-level guide for how to approach troubleshooting.
Understand the problem through effective questioning and formulate a problem statement. To do so, ask questions to determine both what the problem IS and IS NOT. For example:
- How do you describe the problem?
- What sites have the problem?
- When did the problem begin?
- When does the problem happen?
- Was there a problem before the SD-WAN install?
- Do particular users experience these issues?
When you have clear, correct, and relevant answers to these questions, you can establish next steps that ensure a systematic approach to problem solving. For example, you may want to “divide and conquer” by breaking a problem into small, easily resolved issues that build toward a bigger resolution.
