good book. First and foremost, it is not a cookbook with a sysadmin
slant. 'Instead, it is organized as fully-worked-out sysadmin
problems that show how to use powerfully Python features (usually
extensions). The author succeeds in covering both a wide range of
problems and a reasonable range of tools.
Whereas some authors specialize in interesting command-line tools,
Sileika aims at administrative systems. Some of the problems he
covers are expected (such as automating the hard parts of Apache
configs and reporting stats), but others make the book more
interesting to read. The Amazon EC2/S3 section was a nice surprise,
as were the in-depth chapters on IP address allocation.
The tools covered are fairly standard, but the author pulls out some
elegant uses for some of them, such as advanced web site availability
that requires HTML parsing and database optimization with MySQL.
Basic understanding of Django is assumed but the sections that use it
hold up adequately for Django novices.
Overall, this book is probably a good addition to the shelves of most
sysadmins who are also Python-slingers.
