product description

This book not only teaches you how to troubleshoot Linux, it shows you how the system works–so you can attack any problem at its root. Should you reinstall if Linux does not boot? Or can you save time by troubleshooting the problem? Can you enhance performance when Linux hangs or runs slowly? Can you overcome problems with printing or accessing a network? This book provides easy-to-follow examples and an extensive look at the tools, commands, and scripts that make Linux run properly.

* A troubleshooting guide for all Linux users: Focuses on common problems with start-up, printing, login, the network, security, and more

* Explains how to use some of the most popular Linux performance tools, including top, sar, vmstat, iostat, and free

* Handle storage problems and CPU slamming to ensure high Linux performance

* Solve hardware device problems by deciphering error messages and using the lspci tool
