T1   Solaris Internals  New
Marc Staveley, Consultant

Who should attend: Programmers and technical managers who want to learn about the internals of Solaris 2.x, with emphasis on how to extend its features.

This class covers those things you can change or add to the Solaris kernel without necessarily having access to the source code.

Topics will include:

-    Overview of internals
-    Tunable parameters
-    The multi-threaded kernel
-    Loadable system calls
-    Loadable device drivers
-    Loadable file systems
-    Loadable scheduling classes

Simple working examples of some of the above features will be provided as source code. After taking this class, you will know how to change or add to the Solaris 2.x kernel, as well as understand the basic structure of the kernel.  

Marc Staveley  has 15 years of experience in UNIX application development and administration. His current projects include working with SunSoft Engineering on enhancing the RAS characteristics of the Solaris kernel. He is a frequent speaker on the topics of standards-based development, multi-threaded programming, system administration, and system tuning.
