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 is generic and only dated to the extent that there is more information now. The concepts and methods are still sound and can be applied to today's systems.
Want to know about SAR?
When you time an application do you want to know what the user-state CPU time and systemstate CPU time means?
Many of the pertinent questions and answers to System Performance Tuning are in this book. The chapters are:
• Introduction to System Performance
• Monitoring System Activity
• Managing the Workload
• Memory Performance
• Disk Performance Issues
• Network Performance
• Terminal Performance
• Kernel Configuration
• Appendix A Real-time Processes
• Appendix B A Performance Tuning Strategy
This book has helped point to the pertinent manuals on several flavors of UNIX.

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".
