Linux is a widely-used operating system and has proven to be one of the most popular workloads on Azure. It has become crucial for Linux administrators and Microsoft professionals to be well versed with the concepts of managing Linux workloads in an Azure environment. Hands-On Linux Administration on Azure starts by introducing you to the fundamentals of Linux and Azure, after which you will explore advanced Linux features and see how they are managed in an Azure environment. Next, with the help of real-world scenarios, you will learn how to deploy virtual machines(VMs) in Azure, along with extending Azure VMs capabilities and managing them efficiently. You will then understand continuous configuration automation and use Ansible, SaltStack and Powershell DSC for orchestration. As you make your way through the chapters, you will understand containers and how they work, along with managing containers and the various tasks you can perform with them. In the concluding chapters, you will cover some Linux troubleshooting techniques on Azure, and you will also be able to monitor Linux in Azure using different open source tools. By the end of this book, you will be able to administer Linux on Azure and make the most of the important tools required for deployment. What you will learn Understand why Azure is the ideal solution for your open source workloads Master essential Linux skills and learn to find your way around the Linux environment Deploy Linux in an Azure environment Use configuration management to manage Linux in Azure Manage containers in an Azure environment Enhance Linux security and use Azure’s identity management systems Automate deployment with Azure Resource Manager (ARM) and Powershell Employ Ansible to manage Linux instances in an Azure cloud environment Who this book is for Hands-On Linux Administration on Azure is for Linux administrators and Microsoft professionals that need to deploy and manage their workloads in Azure. Prior knowledge of Linux and Azure isn't necessary.

OpenSolaris is a rapidly evolving operating system with roots in Solaris 10, suitable for deployment on laptops, desktop workstations, storage appliances, and data center servers from the smallest single–purpose systems to the largest enterprise–class systems. The growing OpenSolaris community now has hundreds of thousands of participants and users in government agencies, commercial businesses, and universities, with more than 100 user groups around the world contributing to the use and advancement of OpenSolaris. New releases of OpenSolaris become available every six months, with contributions from both Sun engineers and OpenSolaris community members; this book covers the OpenSolaris 2008.11 release. Pro OpenSolaris was written to demonstrate that you can host your open source applications and solutions on OpenSolaris, taking advantage of its advanced features such as containers and other forms of virtualization, the ZFS file system, and DTrace. It's assumed that you are already fairly knowledgeable about developing on Linux systems, so the authors give an overview of the similarities and differences between Linux and OpenSolaris, and then present details on how to use the Service Management Facility (SMF), ZFS, zones, and even a bit of DTrace. They also provide pointers to the many project communities associated with new OpenSolaris features. Special focus is given to web development using familiar applications such as Apache, Tomcat, and MySQL, along with the NetBeans IDE, and showing you how to exploit some of OpenSolaris's unique technologies.

The Complete Guide to Optimizing Systems Performance Written by the winner of the 2013 LISA Award for Outstanding Achievement in System Administration Large-scale enterprise, cloud, and virtualized computing systems have introduced serious performance challenges. Now, internationally renowned performance expert Brendan Gregg has brought together proven methodologies, tools, and metrics for analyzing and tuning even the most complex environments. Systems Performance: Enterprise and the Cloud focuses on Linux® and Unix® performance, while illuminating performance issues that are relevant to all operating systems. You’ll gain deep insight into how systems work and perform, and learn methodologies for analyzing and improving system and application performance. Gregg presents examples from bare-metal systems and virtualized cloud tenants running Linux-based Ubuntu®, Fedora®, CentOS, and the illumos-based Joyent® SmartOS™ and OmniTI OmniOS®. He systematically covers modern systems performance, including the “traditional” analysis of CPUs, memory, disks, and networks, and new areas including cloud computing and dynamic tracing. This book also helps you identify and fix the “unknown unknowns” of complex performance: bottlenecks that emerge from elements and interactions you were not aware of. The text concludes with a detailed case study, showing how a real cloud customer issue was analyzed from start to finish. Coverage includes • Modern performance analysis and tuning: terminology, concepts, models, methods, and techniques • Dynamic tracing techniques and tools, including examples of DTrace, SystemTap, and perf • Kernel internals: uncovering what the OS is doing • Using system observability tools, interfaces, and frameworks • Understanding and monitoring application performance • Optimizing CPUs: processors, cores, hardware threads, caches, interconnects, and kernel scheduling • Memory optimization: virtual memory, paging, swapping, memory architectures, busses, address spaces, and allocators • File system I/O, including caching • Storage devices/controllers, disk I/O workloads, RAID, and kernel I/O • Network-related performance issues: protocols, sockets, interfaces, and physical connections • Performance implications of OS and hardware-based virtualization, and new issues encountered with cloud computing • Benchmarking: getting accurate results and avoiding common mistakes This guide is indispensable for anyone who operates enterprise or cloud environments: system, network, database, and web admins; developers; and other professionals. For students and others new to optimization, it also provides exercises reflecting Gregg’s extensive instructional experience.

Alistair Cockburn beschreibt ausführlich, was Uses Cases sind, welche Bestandteile hineingehören und wie man sie strukturieren sollte. Besonders nützlich sind seine Erörterungen, wie man mit großen Mengen von Use Cases umgeht. Im zweiten Teil seines Buchs geht Cockburn auf verschiedene praktische Probleme ein. Es geht um Fragen wie "Woran erkennen wir, dass wir fertig sind?" oder "Wie fügen sich Use Cases in den Gesamtprozess ein?". Im dritten Teil werden die wichtigsten Themen noch einmal als knappe Referenz zusammengefasst.
