This book teaches Linux programming in the most effective way possible: by showing and explaining well-written programs. Drawing from both V7 Unix® and current GNU source code, Arnold Robbins focuses on the fundamental system call APIs at the core of any significant program, presenting examples from programs that Linux/Unix users already use every day. Gradually, one step at a time, Robbins teaches both high-level principles and "under the hood" techniques. Along the way, he carefully addresses real-world issues like performance, portability, and robustness. Go to the Companion Web Site.

In today's business world, it is crucial to be able to manage large, complex networks in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Network Management, MIBs and MPLS: Principles, Design and Implementation makes such management possible. Widely-experienced engineer and network management specialist Stephen Morris discusses how, the skillful use of MIBs (management information bases) and network management system (NMS) technology, can be used to help solve some of the management problems associated with running large footprint enterprise and service provider networks. These problems include issues of wide technology mix (ATM, FR, Ethernet, IP, MPLS etc.), the increasing need for real time IP traffic, the need for strong security, scalability (the latter is possibly the biggest single problem facing network managers).
