5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this...now
If you are even just a little bit interesting in performance tuning this is the book for you. And if you think you have all the bases covered, still buy this. I've found quite a few sections in this book which have been eye openers to me, and I've been doing performance tuning for years.

This is effectively the new Porsche Book that was a Solaris SAs bible 10...

3.0 out of 5 stars Binding fell apart
The content is good, although I would have much preferred if the Solaris stuff was left out as it just bulks the book out and complicates things.

Unfortunately the binding was very poor and started to fall apart after a few days so I had to return it.

This is effectively the new Porsche Book that was a Solaris SAs bible 10 years ago, covering both Solaris and Linux very well. I've been recommended this book to colleges at work, and I don't normally do that.

Very impressed.

I've been trying for a long time to understand how one can figure out what is going on systems wise when load testing a web app. This book really helps and gives lots of answers to all my questions.
