Our friends from BayLISA came up to San Francisco again the other night. The occasion was the launch of Brendan Gregg's new book, Systems Performance: Enterprise and the Cloud, and we had the first copies hot off the press to raffle off to three lucky attendees.
During the evening, Brendan recounted his motivation and goals for writing the book, its structure, topics, and an in-depth look at Chapter 6: CPUs. This sample chapter and more about the book can be read on his blog.
