9780131865051: User Mode Linux

With User Mode Linux you can create virtual Linux machines within a Linux computer and use them to safely test and debug applications, network services, and even kernels. You can try out new distributions, experiment with buggy software, and even test security. Now, for the first time, the creator and maintainer of User Mode Linux shows how to put it to work hands-on. Jeff Dike covers everything from getting started through running enterprise-class User Mode Linux servers. You'll find authoritative advice on bootup, compilation, administration, specialized configurations, and much more.

Coverage includes

  • What User Mode Linux is, how it works, and its uses in Linux networks
  • Key applications, including server consolidation, development, and disaster recovery
  • Booting and exploration: logins, consoles, swap space, partitioned disks, and more
  • Copy-On-Write (COW): UML's efficient approach to storing filesystem changes
  • In-depth discussion of User Mode Linux networking and security
  • Centrally managing User Mode Linux instances, and controlling their hardware resources
  • Implementing clusters and other specialized configurations
  • Setting up User Mode Linux servers, step-by-step: small-scale and large-scale examples
  • The future of virtualization and User Mode Linux

Whether you're a netadmin, sysadmin, teacher, student, or programmer, User Mode Linux® --the technology and this book--is indispensable.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

When I started the User Mode Linux (UML) project in 1999, I had no idea how large a project it would become or how much of my time it would end up consuming. As time went on, the UML user base grew, and people found new ways to use it. As a result of their requests, UML contains a number of features that would never have occurred to me.

This book concentrates on the use of UML rather than its internals or plans for the future. I've tried to make it as easy as possible to get started with UML and put to good use all of the features my users induced me to add. Of course, I couldn't resist going into how UML works and what I have planned for its future. That would be too much to ask of any developer of any project. I hope this content adds to the book and the readers' understanding and appreciation of UML.
