System Performance Tuning answers the fundamental question: How can I get my computer to do more work without buying more hardware? Some performance problems do require you to buy a bigger or faster computer, but many can be solved simply by making better use of the resources you already have
High performance computing by Kevin Dowd( Book )
4 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 364 libraries worldwide
The purpose of this book, High Performance Computing has always been to teach new programmers and scientists about the basics of High Performance Computing. This book is for learners with a basic understanding of modern computer architecture, not advanced degrees in computer engineering, as it is an easily understood introduction and overview of the topic. Originally published by O'Reilly Media in 1998, the book has since gone out of print and has now been released under the Creative Commons Attribution License on Connexions

System performance tuning by Gian-Paolo D Musumeci( Book )
30 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 260 libraries worldwide
System Performance Tuning answers one of the most fundamental questions you can ask about your computer: How can I get it to do more work without buying more hardware? In the current economic downturn, performance tuning takes on a new importance. It allows system administrators to make the best use of existing systems and minimize the purchase of new equipment. Well-tuned systems save money and time that would otherwise be wasted dealing with slowdowns and errors. Performance tuning always involves compromises; unless system administrators know what the compromises are, they can't make intelligent decisions. Tuning is an essential skill for system administrators who face the problem of adapting the speed of a computer system to the speed requirements imposed by the real world. It requires a detailed understanding of the inner workings of the computer and its architecture. System Performance Tuning covers two distinct areas: performance tuning, or the art of increasing performance for a specific application, and capacity planning, or deciding what hardware best fulfills a given role. Underpinning both subjects is the science of computer architecture. This book focuses on the operating system, the underlying hardware, and their interactions. Topics covered include:<li type="disc">Real and perceived performance problems, introducing capacity planning and performance monitoring (highlighting their strengths and weaknesses). <li type="disc">An integrated description of all the major tools at a system administrator's disposal for tracking down system performance problems. <li type="disc">Background on modern memory handling techniques, including the memory-caching filesystem implementations in Solaris and AIX. Updated sections on memory conservation and computing memory requirements. <li type="disc">In depth discussion of disk interfaces, bandwidth capacity considerations, and RAID systems. <li type="disc">Comprehensive discussion of NFS and greatly expanded discussion of networking. <li type="disc">Workload management and code tuning. <li type="disc">Special topics such as tuning Web servers for various types of content delivery and developments in cross-machine parallel computing For system administrators who want a hands-on introduction to system performance, this is the book to recommend

Spring : a developer's notebook by Bruce Tate( Book )
9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 92 libraries worldwide
Since development first began on Spring in 2003, there's been a constant buzz about it in Java development publications and corporate IT departments. The reason is clear: Spring is a lightweight Java framework in a world of complex heavyweight architectures that take forever to implement. Spring is like a breath of fresh air to overworked developers. In Spring, you can make an object secure, remote, or transactional, with a couple of lines of configuration instead of embedded code. The resulting application is simple and clean. In Spring, you can work less and go home early, because you can st
Maven : a developer's notebook by Vincent Massol( Book )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 80 libraries worldwide
Maven is a new project management and comprehension tool which provides an elegant way to share build logic across projects. In terms of capabilities, Maven is an improvement to Apache Ant-thanks to numerous plug-ins and built-in integration with unit testing frameworks such as JUnit. Tired of writing the same build logic for every project? Using Maven, you can leverage the experience of the community to avoid the tedious process of creating yet another build script for each new project. Maven: A Developer's Notebook begins by introducing you to the concept of project object model (POM), and th

What Is Data Science? by Michael Kosta Loukides( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1 library worldwide
We've all heard it: according to Hal Varian, statistics is the next sexy job. Five years ago, in What is Web 2.0, Tim O'Reilly said that ""data is the next Intel Inside."" But what does that statement mean? Why do we suddenly care about statistics and about data? This report examines the many sides of data science -- the technologies, the companies and the unique skill sets. The web is full of ""data-driven apps."" Almost any e-commerce application is a data-driven application. There's a database behind a web front end, and middleware that talks to a number of other databases and data services

What is DevOps? by Michael Kosta Loukides( Book )
4 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1 library worldwide
Have we entered the age of NoOps infrastructures? Hardly. Old-style system administrators may be disappearing in the face of automation and cloud computing, but operations have become more significant than ever. As this O'Reilly Radar Report explains, we're moving into a more complex arrangement known as "DevOps." Mike Loukides, O'Reilly's VP of Content Strategy, provides an incisive look into this new world of operations, where IT specialists are becoming part of the development team. In an environment with thousands of servers, these specialists now write the code that maintains the infrastructure. Even applications that run in the cloud have to be resilient and fault tolerant, need to be monitored, and must adjust to huge swings in load. That was underscored by Amazon's EBS outage last year. From the discussions at O'Reilly's Velocity Conference, it's evident that many operations specialists are quickly adapting to the DevOps reality. But as a whole, the industry has just scratched the surface. This report tells you why
