Linux "Must Have" book for servers or desktop client,
This review is from: Linux Server Hacks: 100 Industrial-Strength Tips and Tools (Paperback)
First, I write software professionally. I write software, I am not a Sys Admin (which is hard work I might add; System Administration is for hardcore people.) This book saved me money by giving me answers to problems that would have taken me days to find the answers to by searching the internet.
Hack #17 includes "pgrep"
Before I was doing "ps -elf | grep something" to find a process I wanted to kill. Hack #17 explains a better way to do that with pgrep and things like "skill"
Simple enough but time is money in this business and this book save both time and money.
Also the book is a "good" read. The author writes well and keeps you reading. Not a dry manual.
If you are doing Linux for fun or work you need will need to buy this book. It allows you more time to sleep at night.
