5.0 out of 5 stars This book cost a small price and returned me lots of regular nights sleep, 20 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Automating System Administration with Perl (Paperback)
I reccomend this book to anyone who wants to support systems and sleep. Rare concept maybe, but I have done this, simply put I now get sleep while my servers rectify themselves!
Ok, I do need to wade through a few emails in the morning, but everything is online 24x7. Also I have built control panels to allow for emergency procedures to be operated from the push of a button.

You need to know Perl, systems a bit and be a technical person, but really this book is a gem!
Why listen to me, who am I?
I manage over 60 servers for an online gaming company, I know each machine as I provisioned it, however the games they run can cause problems. Do you want to shell into a box and swap on/swap off? What if you are out of RAM? How do you know what process just hoofed your machine into zombie mode?

Automated and CP (Control Panel) sys admin is a life saver. Great read even if it just serves as a refresher :)
