"The Solaris™Internals volumes are simply the best and most comprehensive treatment of the Solaris (and OpenSolaris) Operating Environment. 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 (likeDTrace), 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." --Jarod Jenson, chief systems architect, Aeysis "The Solaris™ Internals volumes by Jim Mauro and Richard McDougall must be on your bookshelf if you are interested in in-depth knowledge of Solaris operating system internals and architecture. 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." --Marc Strahl, senior UNIX engineer Solaris™ Internals, Second Edition, describes the algorithms and data structures of all the major subsystems in the Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris kernels. The text has been extensively revised since the first edition, with more than 600 pages of new material. Integrated Solaris tools and utilities, including DTrace, MDB, kstat, and the process tools, are used throughout to illustrate how the reader can observe the Solaris kernel in action. The companion volume, Solaris™ Performance and Tools, extends the examples contained here, and expands the scope to performance and behavior analysis. Coverage includes: Virtual and physical memory Processes, threads, and scheduling File system framework and UFS implementation Networking: TCP/IP implementation Resource management facilities and zones The Solaris™ Internals volumes make a superb reference for anyone using Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris.

Customize Applications for Maximum Availability in Sun Cluster Environments The Sun Cluster 3 environment offers developers and administrators a powerful API for creating custom "data services" that maximize the availability and enhance the horizontal scalability of many enterprise applications. Now, here's an authoritative tutorial and reference to building custom data services with the Sun Cluster 3 API. In Sun Cluster 3 Programming, three leading Sun Cluster experts systematically review the tools, programming interfaces, and features that make custom data services possible. Then, through a series of step-by-step examples, they demonstrate how to ensure that applications can recover smoothly from even the most serious failures. This book Reviews every facet of "availability" and what it takes to make software available Provides extensive easy-to-understand code examples, all available for download Covers all areas of agent development, from quick basics to advanced techniques Covers all the APIs provided with Sun Cluster 3 Walks step-by-step through making existing applications available, scalable, and cluster-aware Until now, this information has been available only in a three-day Sun training course. Now, with the help of Sun's in-house experts, you have all the information you need to build Sun Cluster 3 custom applications that deliver unprecedented levels of application availability.

For a one-semester undergraduate course in operating systems for computer science, computer engineering, and electrical engineering majors. Winner of the 2009 Textbook Excellence Award from the Text and Academic Authors Association (TAA)! Operating Systems: Internals and Design Principles is a comprehensive and unified introduction to operating systems. By using several innovative tools, Stallings makes it possible to understand critical core concepts that can be fundamentally challenging. The new edition includes the implementation of web based animations to aid visual learners. At key points in the book, students are directed to view an animation and then are provided with assignments to alter the animation input and analyze the results. The concepts are then enhanced and supported by end-of-chapter case studies of UNIX, Linux and Windows Vista. These provide students with a solid understanding of the key mechanisms of modern operating systems and the types of design tradeoffs and decisions involved in OS design. Because they are embedded into the text as end of chapter material, students are able to apply them right at the point of discussion. This approach is equally useful as a basic reference and as an up-to-date survey of the state of the art.

Since its first printing in October 1991, Essential System Administration has been the definitive practical guide for Unix and Linux system administrators. The book talks about all the usual administrative tools that Unix and Linux provide-and also shows how to use those tools in smarter and more efficient ways. Author AEleen Frisch expands coverage of networking, electronic mail, security, and kernel configuration-topics of increasing importance to administrators. It also includes coverage of services such as LDAP, PAM, DHCP, and DNS, and discussions of many important open source tools, including SSH, Cfengine, Amanda, RRDTool, and Cricket. The latest versions of all major Unix platforms, including Red Hat Linux 7.3 and SuSE Linux 8, Solaris 8 and 9, FreeBSD 4.6, AIX 5, HP-UX 11 and 11i, and Tru64 5.1, have been thoroughly reviewed and tested. You will find this book indispensable whether you are responsible for a large, shared computer system or a network of workstations, or you use a standalone Unix or Linux system and have found that the fine line between a user and an administrator has vanished. And even if you aren't directly or solely responsible for system administration, you'll find that understanding important administrative functions will greatly increase your ability to use Unix effectively.

The Definitive Guide to Java RTS for Developers and Architects For Java developers and architects moving to real-time, and real-time developers moving to Java Walks through start-to-finish case study applications, identifying their constraints and discussing the APIs and design patterns used to address them Written by the former leader of the real-time Java standards process and one of Wall Street's top real-time developers Sun Microsystems' Java Real-Time System (Java RTS) is proving itself in numerous, wide-ranging environments, including finance, control systems, manufacturing, and defense. Java RTS and the RTSJ standard (JSR-001) eliminate the need for complicated, specialized, real-time languages and operating environments, saving money by leveraging Java's exceptional productivity and familiarity. In Real-Time Java(tm) Programming, two of Sun's top real-time programming experts present the deep knowledge and realistic code examples that developers need to succeed with Java RTS and its APIs. As they do so, the authors also illuminate the foundations of real-time programming in any RTSJ-compatible environment. Key topics include Real-time principles and concepts, and the unique requirements of real-time application design and development How Java has been adapted to real-time environments A complete chapter on garbage collection concepts and Java SE collectors Using the Java RTS APIs to solve actual real-time system problems as efficiently as possible Utilizing today's leading Java RTS development and debugging tools Understanding real-time garbage collection, threads, scheduling, and dispatching Programming new RTSJ memory models Dealing with asynchronous event handling and asynchronous transfer of control
