Publisher Comments:

“If you’re a developer trying to figure out why your application is not responding at 3 am, you need this book! This is now my go-to book when diagnosing production issues. It has saved me hours in troubleshooting complicated operations problems.”

Trotter Cashion, cofounder, Mashion

 

DevOps can help developers, QAs, and admins work together to solve Linux server problems far more rapidly, significantly improving IT performance, availability, and efficiency. To gain these benefits, however, team members need common troubleshooting skills and practices.

 

In DevOps Troubleshooting: Linux Server Best Practices , award-winning Linux expert Kyle Rankin brings together all the standardized, repeatable techniques your team needs to stop finger-pointing, collaborate effectively, and quickly solve virtually any Linux server problem. Rankin walks you through using DevOps techniques to troubleshoot everything from boot failures and corrupt disks to lost email and downed websites. You’ll master indispensable skills for diagnosing high-load systems and network problems in production environments.

 

Rankin shows how to

  • Master DevOps’ approach to troubleshooting and proven Linux server problem-solving principles
  • Diagnose slow servers and applications by identifying CPU, RAM, and Disk I/O bottlenecks
  • Understand healthy boots, so you can identify failure points and fix them
  • Solve full or corrupt disk issues that prevent disk writes
  • Track down the sources of network problems
  • Troubleshoot DNS, email, and other network services
  • Isolate and diagnose Apache and Nginx Web server failures and slowdowns
  • Solve problems with MySQL and Postgres database servers and queries
  • Identify hardware failures–even notoriously elusive intermittent failures

Synopsis:

The DevOps approach to system administration describes a world where Linux developers and sysadmins work far more closely than in traditional environments. DevOps is optimized to support today's confluence of Linux trends, including cloud migrations, the rise of startups using hosted services, greater requirements to analyze big data, and the transition to NoSQL databases. One of DevOps' most powerful benefits is its support for better, faster troubleshooting. In this book, pioneering Linux sysadmin Kyle Rankin teaches DevOps' standardized, repeatable troubleshooting techniques, showing administrators and developers how to work together to reduce costs and improve effectiveness. Rankin helps both developers and admins fill the gaps in their respective troubleshooting skillsets, so they can stop pointing fingers - and start getting results. Writing clearly and simply, he walks through using DevOps techniques to identify and resolve these and other common problems in Linux environments: * Slow servers (including CPU, RAM, and disk I/O bottlenecks) * System boot failures * Full or corrupt disks * Down servers and websites * Failures in DNS server hostname resolution * Email delivery problems * Slow databases * Hardware faults
