Resource Management

Book Description


Resource Management is a practical guide that shows how to manage system resources to meet system and performance service levels. The theory of Resource Management is introduced and a detailed analysis of what is required to implement resource management in the Solaris environment is explored. The BluePrint includes examples of typical system workloads and how the Solaris resource management facilities and products can be used with these workloads. Workloads include Databases, File Services, Web Servers, Batch Tasks, and Internet Service Provider configurations such as ftp.
