Configuration and Capacity Planning for Solaris Servers

  • Brian L. Wong
  • Sun Microsystems Press Prentice Hall
  • ISBN: 0-13-349952-9

Although written very specifically for Sun Solaris, this has a wealth of information about planning, tuning and configuring any system, Unix or not.

There is a strong concentration and many pages devoted to NFS, and that may not be of great interest to many of us. You should read those parts anyway; there is a lot of general network knowledge mixed in,

There is an excellent chapter on Database Server needs, and a chapter on Internet Servers, too. The section on Storage Systems and System Architecture is heavy on Sun specific hardware, but there are lessons to be learned for other platforms as well.

This is a book that covers a tremendous amount of ground in 412 pages, but Brian does an excellent job. If you have no interest or knowledge of Sun, you won't get as much out of this as you might want to, but you could still find it interesting and valuable.
