Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0201549794, Hardcover)This book describes the design and implementation of the BSD operating system--previously known as the Berkeley version of UNIX. Today, BSD is found in nearly every variant of UNIX, and is widely used for Internet services and firewalls, timesharing, and multiprocessing systems. Readers involved in technical and sales support can learn the capabilities and limitations of the system; applications developers can learn effectively and efficiently how to interface to the system; systems programmers can learn how to maintain, tune, and extend the system.
Highlights: Details major changes in process and memory management Describes the new extensible and stackable file system interface Includes an invaluable chapter on the new network file system Updates information on networking and interprocess communication Written from the unique perspective of the system's architects, this book delivers the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and authoritative technical information on the internal structure of the latest BSD system.
