Summary HP-UX 11i Internals Chris CooperChris MooreInvaluable information for optimizing HP-UX performance, reliability, and efficiencyFind out how to approach system administration, tuning, and troubleshooting from a more informed perspectiveFor every HP-UX sysadmin, programmer, and performance specialist HP Professional Books HP-UX 11i Internals HP-UX under the hood: practical insight for optimization and troubleshooting To maximize the performance, efficiency, and reliability of your HP-UX sysem, you need to know what's going on under the hood. "HP-UX 11i Internals goes beyond generic UNIX internals, showing exactly how HP-UX works in PA-RISC environments. HP experts Cooper and Moore systematically illuminate HP-UX kernel data structures and algorithms for memory management, process and thread scheduling, I/O control, files and file systems, resource management, and more. They focus on HP-UX 11i, while also offering valuable insight for those using earlier versions. PA-RISC architecture: register set, virtual memory, key instructions, and procedure calling conventionsHP-UX kernel organization: hardware-dependent and independent data structuresProcess and thread management: proc tables, memory management, scheduling, and the complete process/thread lifecycleSystem-wide memory resources: allocation and mapping to physical memoryHP-UX paging and swappingFiles and filesystems: traditional UNIX filesystems, HFS, VFS, and dynamic buffer cacheI/O and device management: addressing, DMA, interrupts, device files, I/O configuration, device driver assignments, and I/O request pathwaysLogical Volume Management (LVM): abstracting physical disks from the disk I/O systemHP-UXmultiprocessing: challenges, data structures, and interfacesKernel communication services: semaphores, message queues, shared memory, signals, and the kernel "callout" system Signaling in complex threaded environmentsSystem initialization, f
