What Every Superuser Should KnowBook - 2015
n this completely revised second edition, Brian Ward makes accessible the concepts behind Linux internals to anyone curious about the inner workings of the operating system. Readers will learn: how Linux boots, from boot loaders to init implementations (systemd, Upstart, and System V); how the kernel manages devices, device drivers, and processes; how networking, interfaces, firewalls, and servers work; how development tools work and relate to shared libraries; how to write effective shell scripts. Readers also will explore the kernel and examine key system tasks inside user space, including system calls, input and output, and filesystems.
