I have read both First and Second edition of the book. The second
edition is massively improved. It Covers both Solaris and Linux.
It will give an administrator (or a wannabe administrator) good
knowledge of Hardware and Software,RAID,SCSI, memory performance monitoring.

It's really general with no tricks at all.Good for a basic understanding of system monitoring tools, but lacks on tuning info. It's more directed to understanding your system rather than changing. If you are looking at a specific tuning book that's definitely not the reading for you. Should be titled "System Performance Monitoring".
