The print quality is horrible. Some of the pages are visibly crooked, and illustrations with grayscale detail look like they are photocopies of photocopies. The gradient on the chapter headings suffer from this too.
The organization of the chapters is first-rate. You can get to the heart of the matter with a quick glance at the table of content. The indexing is excellent. I'm amazed that I can find an entry for most of the topics I'm looking up. It has become my first point of reference for configuration and tuning issues.
Do yourself a favour, BUY IT! I'm already looking forward to the second edition of this masterpiece.
Not only does Alan Packer provide incredibly useful information regarding how the Orcale, Sybase, Informix and DB2 databases work but he also gives many hints and tips on Solaris-related issues.
From process management to data storage, there is something here for anyone involved in administering performance on Solaris servers.
Also, the content is very much up-to-date with coverage of Solaris 2.6, 7 and 8.
An excellent read, very informative and well written
It cuts all the small talk, and it breaks down every topic in an understandable format and teaches you what you really need to know.
The section on how to improve DISK performance was great, i implemented many things that i learned from reading this book.
Just buy it, you wont regretit.
Its a small price to pay for a good piece of mind.
