Book review: Linux® Debugging and Performance Tuning: Tips and Techniques

Filed under
Reviews

Debugging and tuning of Linux, though not a romantic subject, is a necessary one for the health of any well-run free software biased network. A slight change here and a nudge there in the background can make the difference between user discomfort and a quiet Sunday afternoon for the poor old administrator. Linux Debugging and Performance Tuning as written by Steve Best is an excellent zoom in on this complex and detailed subject area.

Quoting from the introduction of the book, and I have no reason to disagree, this book is intended for the person who is developing or supporting Linux applications or even the Kernel. I would go further and say that the power user that likes to run the make command raw may also enjoy this work. I even dare to say that this is a development team book and would sit nicely on the team room bookshelf next to the coffee pot and the almost dead potted plant.

Full Story.
