"The Solaris™Internals volumes are easily the simplest and such a lot finished therapy of the Solaris (and OpenSolaris) working setting. anybody utilizing Solaris--in any capacity--would be remiss to not comprise those new volumes of their own library. With complex observability instruments in Solaris (likeDTrace), you are going to extra usually end up in what was once formerly unchartable territory. Solaris™ Internals, moment Edition, presents us a ravishing capability with a view to speedy comprehend those platforms and extra discover the Solaris architecture--especially whilst coupled with OpenSolaris resource availability."
--Jarod Jenson, leader platforms architect, Aeysis
"The Solaris™ Internals volumes via Jim Mauro and Richard McDougall has to be in your bookshelf while you're attracted to in-depth wisdom of Solaris working procedure internals and structure. As a senior Unix engineer for a few years, i discovered the 1st variation of Solaris™ Internals the single absolutely entire resource for kernel builders, structures programmers, and platforms directors. the hot moment version, with the spouse functionality and debugging booklet, is an imperative reference set, containing many helpful and sensible reasons of Solaris and its underlying subsystems, together with instruments and techniques for watching and interpreting any approach operating Solaris 10 or OpenSolaris."
--Marc Strahl, senior UNIX engineer
Solaris™ Internals, moment Edition, describes the algorithms and knowledge constructions of the entire significant subsystems within the Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris kernels. The textual content has been greatly revised because the first variation, with greater than six hundred pages of latest fabric. built-in Solaris instruments and utilities, together with DTrace, MDB, kstat, and the method instruments, are used all through to demonstrate how the reader can detect the Solaris kernel in motion. The better half quantity, Solaris™ functionality and Tools, extends the examples contained right here, and expands the scope to functionality and behaviour research. assurance includes:
- Virtual and actual memory
- Processes, threads, and scheduling
- File process framework and UFS implementation
- Networking: TCP/IP implementation
- Resource administration amenities and zones
The Solaris™ Internals volumes make an excellent reference for a person utilizing Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris.
