Focus groups are an essential step in enhancing your understanding of how community residents view the behavior you wish to promote. However, by themselves, focus groups do not always provide sufficient information to develop a community-based social marketing plan. Focus groups are limited by the small number of participants, the impact that members of the focus group have upon one another, and the qualitative nature of the answers obtained. The small number of participants makes generalizing the results to the larger community unwise and, while interviewing participants in groups is cost-effective, members of a focus group can have a substantial effect on what opinions are expressed. Furthermore, the qualitative data obtained in focus groups places limits on the types of analyses that can be performed. Despite these limitations, focus groups provide valuable in-depth information about what issues participants see as important and also how they speak about the topic (., do they use the word watershed in speaking about local rivers and lakes?). As such, focus groups will help enrich your understanding of the activity you wish to promote, and help ensure that your survey will be well-constructed, comprehensive, and contain questions that will be readily understood by the respondents.
The next step is to establish a baseline for normal Step Functions performance in your environment. To do this, measure performance at various times and under different load conditions. As you monitor Step Functions, you should consider storing historical monitoring data. Such data can give you a baseline to compare against current performance data, to identify normal performance patterns and performance anomalies, and to devise ways to address issues.
One more step to add at the very beginning for people like me who miss the blatantly obvious: Make sure your computer name is what you want it to be before you start! I followed this tutorial to set up my DC and DNS, and then followed another tutorial here [ https:///files/support/infinityinstaller/content/installermaster/ ] to also configure it as a DHCP and Certificate Authority (CA) server.
Then I realized I had accidentally left the default name of my PC as WIN-LBQ4ISKVRCT. Imagine having to type that over and over again!
To change the name, I had to go through the painful process of removing the CA role here [ https:///kb/889250?wa= ], and got a nasty warning message when I went to rename the DC.
Moral of this story: Make sure your domain controller PC is named what you want it to be before you start! it will save you headaches down the line.
Again, excellent tutorial! Thank you!
