This book is a collection of recipes for the working Linux sysadmin–a set of stand-alone quick guides and tips that you can keep on your desk for easy reference. Hardcore in-depth manuals are great wh
en you have the time to sit down and read through them thoroughly, but that’s not always the case when you have a bug that you needed fixed yesterday. This book is aimed at giving you tools to fix problems faster but also to help you set up software and systems to avoid problems showing up in the first place.
Or at least to help you catch them sooner and solve them faster when they do show up. I wrote this because when working as a sysadmin, I spent a lot of time hunting for just this sort of information. This is a collection of things that I’ve personally found useful and wanted to share with other people in my position.
