From the Back Cover:

The definitive Sun Microsystems guide to the internals of the Solaris kernel.

This book focuses on the core kernel functions, major data structures and algorithms. Its practical approach makes it an essential resource for anyone responsible for kernel, driver or application software. Anyone doing development, debugging, maintenance, performance tuning, capacity planning, or application tuning will also benefit from Mauro and McDougall's in-depth coverage of the Solaris kernel.

This authoritative and comprehensive guide covers the key components that comprise the Solaris kernel. The modular architecture of the kernel is discussed and each major subsystem is fully explored. Topics covered include:

  • Scheduler implementation and behavior
  • The Solaris multi-threaded architecture
  • Multi-threaded synchronization primitives
  • The Solaris Virtual Memory implementation, including tools for memory measurement and analysis
  • The Virtual File System framework
  • Techniques for analyzing kernel behavior and structures with sar, vmstat, crash, and adb

Solaris Internals is an indispensable reference for kernel developers and is full of useful information for monitoring and optimizing Solaris systems. Whether you're a software developer, systems architect, system administrator, or performance analyst, you'll rely on it constantly.
