Unix Systems for Modern Architecture

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

Order (or just read more about) SMP and Caching from Amazon.com

Everything you ever wanted to know about SMP, and more than I ever wanted to know about caches.

This is another book I found useful while studying for Sun exams. Beyond that, though, it's a great introduction to the problems of multiprocessor machines.

More than half the book deals with cacheing issues, which is to be expected. There is a small (very small) review of Unix internals, and then it dives right into caches: virtual, physical, virtual with keys and on it goes. After that, 150 pages or so on multiprocessing, and then back into caches, this time from a multiiprocessor perspective.

Worth reading even if you only want a better understanding of multiprocessing. With the coming advent of clusters, it's worthwhile to understand this as a comparison point.

UNIX does not allow path names to be prefixed by a drive name or number; that would be precisely the kind of device dependence that operating systems ought to eliminate. (Andrew S. Tanenbaum)
