From the Back Cover

"Solaris(TM) Application Programming" is a comprehensive guide to optimizing the performance of applications running in your Solaris environment. From the fundamentals of system performance to using analysis and optimization tools to their fullest, this wide-ranging resource shows developers and software architects how to get the most from Solaris systems and applications.
Whether you're new to performance analysis and optimization or an experienced developer searching for the most efficient ways to solve performance issues, this practical guide gives you the background information, tips, and techniques for developing, optimizing, and debugging applications on Solaris.
The text begins with a detailed overview of the components that affect system performance. This is followed by explanations of the many developer tools included with Solaris OS and the Sun Studio compiler, and then it takes you beyond the basics with practical, real-world examples. In addition, you will learn how to use the rich set of developer tools to identify performance problems, accurately interpret output from the tools, and choose the smartest, most efficient approach to correcting specific problems and achieving maximum system performance.
Coverage includes
  • A discussion of the chip multithreading (CMT) processors from Sun and how they change the way that developers need to think about performance
  • A detailed introduction to the performance analysis and optimization tools included with the Solaris OS and Sun Studio compiler
  • Practical examples for using the developer tools to their fullest, including informational tools, compilers, floating point optimizations, libraries and linking, performance profilers, and debuggers
  • Guidelines for interpreting tool analysis output
  • Optimization, including hardware performance counter metrics and source code optimizations
  • Techniques for improving application performance using multiple processes, or multiple threads
  • An overview of hardware and software components that affect system performance, including coverage of SPARC and x64 processors

One often hopes for a textbook that can enlighten as well as educate and in this case Gove has done both. There were a collection of contributions in this text from various members within Sun Microsystems and the quality, talent and level of professionalism is top notch research grade. This is an essential book for anyone doing application development on UNIX and Solaris in particular.

Darryl Gove does an excellent job of covering approaches
to performance analysis and improvement. In addition,
he does an excellent job of presenting and explaining
all of the tools available on Solaris. I found myself
not only with a better idea of what is available on
Solaris, but with a better idea of what to look for on
the other platforms.

The clarity with which the entire book is written
and the level of detail it goes into is just perfect.

Highly recommended!

I have been a follower of Darryl's blog and i think this book sort of summarises the latest technologies available on the Sun platform and how to use them. Love this book and i consider it the latest reference guide on Solaris. Definitely a must have for performance buffs!
