As an administrator of your community, you need to ensure that the structure of your community matches the needs of the members and can provide you with the information you need to understand usage and performance.

System administration includes standard server maintenance operations (such as gathering and scrutinizing reports), changes in community setup after initial roles and models have been established, and creating customizations that affect all users in a group or site (such as blog appearance defaults).
