Understanding the LINUX Kernel: From I/O Ports to Process Management

Buy
Understanding the Linux Kernel helps readers understand how Linux performs best and how
it meets the challenge of different environments. The authors introduce each topic by
explaining its importance, and show how kernel operations relate to the utilities that are
familiar to Unix programmers and users.

The idea was to encourage students to read the source code. To achieve this, we assigned term
projects consisting of making changes to the kernel and performing tests on the modified
version. We also wrote course notes for our students about a few critical features of Linux like
task switching and task scheduling.

We continued along this line in the spring semester of 1998, but we moved on to the Linux
2.1 development version. Our course notes were becoming larger and larger. In July, 1998 we
contacted O'Reilly & Associates, suggesting they publish a whole book on the Linux kernel.
The real work started in the fall of 1998 and lasted about a year and a half. We read thousands
of lines of code, trying to make sense of them. After all this work, we can say that it was
worth the effort. We learned a lot of things you don't find in books, and we hope we have
succeeded in conveying some of this information in the following pages.
