Introduction; Storage and Device Management; UNIX File Systems Architecture; Logical Storage Manager; UNIX File System; Advanced File System; Network File System; Configuration and Tuning; Troubleshooting and Recovery; Appendices; Glossary


This unique and authoritative book helps systems administrators and other technical professionals understand and master perhaps the most critical part of Tru64 UNIX: the file system by which the operating system stores and manipulates all of the information that enables both it and other applications to function. File system administration thus is one of the most important, complex, and time-consuming tasks Tru64 system administrators must perform.

If Tru64 UNIX is an automobile engine, then the file system is the microprocessor that keeps all of the engine components working together efficiently, and this book explains how to manage, tune, and troubleshoot this processor. Steve Hancock is an ideal author for this book. As a file systems support engineer within Compaq's Tru64 UNIX group, he trains and consults with systems administrators and engineers within large corporations who are designing, managing, and troubleshooting Tru64 UNIX file systems. Tru64 UNIX File Systems Administration Handbook covers all of the newest and advanced Tru64 UNIX features, including Compaq's TruCluster technology, which enables organizations to grow their systems by integrating many individual computers.

Tru64 UNIX File System Administration Handbook is an exceptional addition to existing UNIX/Linux systems administration references. Steven Hancock takes the time to thoroughly explain what you need to effectively administer a Tru64 UNIX system and why you need it. He also addresses some problems facing the Tru64 UNIX administrator (and UNIX administrators in general) and the best ways to solve them. This is a superb book on a topic seldom addressed for administrators. - Sys Admin Magazine ...the book is the only one its kind on the topic of Tru64 Unix. This unique and authoritative text helps systems administrators and other technical professionals understand and master perhaps the most critical part of Tru64 Unix: the file system. - Network Computing There's a very good reason why I gave this book a 9 on of a scale of 10 points: It is the only book I've seen that's dedicated to UFS (Unix file system) administration. - Network Computing This book not only covers the basics, but it also hits on some of the -- until now -- undocumented utilities of Compaq's Tru64 Unix. If you maintain systems that must be online 24x7x365, then you need this book. - Network Computing
