New in this edition is coverage of Oracle's own Solaris operating system. Oracle Corporation has been working diligently to bring commonality between Solaris and and Linux, and this book takes advantage of those efforts to provide task-oriented solutions that work on common distributions of Linux such as Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Oracle Enterprise Linux while also accommodating the growing number of Oracle Solaris customers. Examples in the book match the tasks DBAs perform daily, even hourly. Solutions come first in the book, but al
ways are followed by close explanations of the details.
