9780130328618: HP-UX 11i Internals

HP-UX Internals introduces readers to the "under the hood" aspects of the HP-UX operating system. The book illustrates the kernel data structures and algorithms used to provide process/thread scheduling, I/O control and system resource management. Both hardware dependent and hardware independent data structures are examined and explained. The topics covered help readers approach system administration, tuning and troubleshooting from a more informed perspective, and challenge them to make more effective use of their HP-UX systems. The material is focused on the HP-UX 11i (version 1.0) release of the HP-UX operating system, but includes some historic aspects of its development to establish and understanding of its current incarnation.

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 conventions
  • HP-UX kernel organization: hardware-dependent and independent data structures
  • Process and thread management: proc tables, memory management, scheduling, and the complete process/thread lifecycle
  • System-wide memory resources: allocation and mapping to physical memory
  • HP-UX paging and swapping
  • Files and filesystems: traditional UNIX filesystems, HFS, VFS, and dynamic buffer cache
  • I/O and device management: addressing, DMA, interrupts, device files, I/O configuration, device driver assignments, and I/O request pathways
  • Logical Volume Management (LVM): abstracting physical disks from the disk I/O system
  • HP-UX multiprocessing: challenges, data structures, and interfaces
  • Kernel communication services: semaphores, message queues, shared memory, signals, and the kernel "callout" system
  • Signaling in complex threaded environments
  • System initialization, from vmunix to init: running HP-UX on diverse platforms

Whether you administer HP-UX, tune it, troubleshoot it, or write kernel modules for it, you'll find HP-UX 11i Internals indispensable.
