Abstract: Nowadays, as computers get more advanced each day, so do the software being written for them. This advancement brings about increasing complexity in system configurations. Most, if not all, requirements are mentioned in lengthy user/installation manuals, reading those becomes all the more a tedious job. Small scripts are being used for automation to verify the configuration. However managing the scripts became more tedious as the numbers of configurations become huge. We figured that it would be so much easier on everyone if there could be a framework in place to do the verifications, instead of someone doing it manually. We have come up with a knowledge-based EXP framework which can be extensible using Microsoft Excel, XML schema and PERL script which we intend to verify, things that overlooked, system health check up, product specific optimal value, database and kernel
Keywords: Knowledge-based system, EXP framework, system health check-up tool, verifying configuration tool.
