Any person using Solaris - in any capacity - would be remiss not to include these two new volumes in their personal library. With advanced observability tools in Solaris like DTrace , you will more often find yourself in what was previously unchartable territory. Solaris Internals, Second Edition, provides us a fantastic means to be able to quickly understand these systems and further explore the Solaris architecture - especially when coupled with OpenSolaris source availability. As a senior Unix engineer for many years, I found the first edition of Solaris Internals the only fully comprehensive source for kernel developers, systems programmers, and systems administrators. The new second edition, with the companion performance and debugging book, is an indispensable reference set, containing many useful and practical explanations of Solaris and its underlying subsystems, including tools and methods for observing and analyzing any system running Solaris 10 or OpenSolaris. It provides a systematic approach to understanding performance and behavior, including: Analyzing CPU utilization by the kernel and applications, including reading and understanding hardware counters Process-level resource usage and profiling Disk IO behavior and analysis Memory usage at the system and application level Network performance Monitoring and profiling the kernel, and gathering kernel statistics Using DTrace providers and aggregations MDB commands and a complete MDB tutorial The Solaris Internals volumes make a superb reference for anyone using Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris.
