"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 (like DTrace), 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™ Performance and Tools provides comprehensive coverage of the powerful utilities bundled with Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris, including the Solaris Dynamic Tracing facility, DTrace, and the Modular Debugger, MDB. It provides a systematic approach to understanding performance and behavior, including:
The Solaris™ Internals volumes make a superb reference for anyone using Solaris 10 and OpenSolaris.
I bought it for my company. It's really useful for performance engineer, especially for performance engineer in Sun microsystem. I'm learning.Published on June 22, 2013 by Haochen Liu
After seeing Mr. Mauro speak and his host mentioned his book in glowing terms I bought it almost out of curiosity. I'm sure glad I did. Read morePublished on February 5, 2010 by NitaBillS
A surprisingly good book from Sun considering how poorly I think of mdb as a development tool. If you are forced to work with Solaris then this is a must have for your bookshelf.Published on July 6, 2008 by R. Balsover
If you need to dig into the internals of Solaris for any reason, this book is a must have, especially for the dtrace and mdb tools which are very powerful but powerfully complex. Read morePublished on June 20, 2008 by D. WOJTOWICZ
If you have bought Solaris Internals, this book is a must because it will take to the practice many of the information given in the other one. Read morePublished on March 23, 2008 by Sergio Aguayo
I found this to be one of the best manuals for dtrace, iostat and mdb that I have ever seen. Not only were there good examples but there were lots of them. Read morePublished on November 30, 2007 by Timothy T. Burlowski
