The Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System

51O2s8E3dsL._SY300_For many years, The Design and Implementation of the FreeBSD Operating System has been recognized as the most complete, up-to-date, and authoritative technical guide to FreeBSD’s internal structure. Now, this definitive guide has been extensively updated to reflect all major FreeBSD improvements between Versions 5 and Versions 11.

Approximately one-third of the content in this edition is completely new, and another one-third has been extensively rewritten. The authors fully cover every FreeBSD improvement today’s sysadmins, application and system programmers, and support professionals need to know about.

Three leading FreeBSD experts begin by providing a concise overview of FreeBSD’s current design and implementation. Next, while explaining key design decisions, they detail the concepts, data structures, and algorithms used in implementing each significant systems facility. Readers can use this book as both a working reference and an in-depth study of a leading contemporary, portable, open source operating system.

Introducing the iXsystems MEGAPORT

You may remember the iXsystems MEGACORE, the monster of a server built for the FreeBSD Foundation. Recently an iX client had specific networking requirements for a 2U/4 node solution, so iX came up with a custom build that fit all of their needs.

Meet “MEGAPORT”. To get an idea of how impressive this system is, you have to look at it piece by piece.

freebsdnews.net looking for a new owner

This website is looking for a new owner. Since I’m not able to dedicate enough time to maintain this website anymore, I have decided to step back and let somebody else take over and run it. I loved building up this site and keeping it up to date for the last 7 years (almost), so it’s been a hard decision to let it go.

I’ll still be around and be part of the FreeBSD community, but I need more time to work on something else FreeBSD related……

If you’re interested in taking over a 7 year old website with a steady and healthy amount of daily page views and a Google PR of 5, please get in touch to work out the details.
