Linux Observability with BPF: Advanced Programming for Performance Analysis and Networking (Télécharger)
This is a book that was clearly written by talented engineers who know what they re talking about It s also clear that O Reilly didn t provide these authors with a proper book editor to help them deliver something eual to the authors knowledge talent It s just incomplete The introduction to BPF itself
is abrupt and vague There are next to no illustrations or drawings that might help the reader nderstand some abrupt and vague There are next to no

Build your expertise in the BPF virtual machine in the Linux kernel with this practical guide for systems engineers You'll not only dive into the BPF program lifecycle but also learn to write applications that observe and modify the kernel's behavior; inject code to monitor trace and securely observe events in the kernel; and Auth. .

PLACE AS A REFERENCE FOR THEas a reference for the ser though maybe not for the full list price It also has the bones for what could ltimately be a great resource I sincerely hope that authors take the time to step back flesh it out put in some real world examples for each of the BFP program types and copy edit out the random sprinkling of badly misplaced commas that infect nearly every paragraph This could be a great book but we ll have to wait for a future edition to get that.
