Format: Paperback
"Pro Python System Administration" by Rytis Sileika is a surprisingly
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.

I primarily purchased this book for one chapter, the last one on Amazon EC2 tools. I was blown away with this book. It is deep Python System Administration. You should have a very good grasp on Python and need to do some serious Linux SysAdmin. No light stuff here. The title is dead on. I got what I wanted, but also picked up a couple of tricks for other automation. Check out the table of contents and if any of that looks like something you would like to automate or streamline, then buy the book.

It is not a bad book. It has a good chapter structure to guide you to learn python as system administration tool but you need to spend a significant amount of time on the internet to find explanations instead of being able to focus on reading this book. It lacks some important explanations in every chapter.

Carries over nicely to real world use cases. I think that's all anyone really needs to take away from this book.
