Description du produit
Revue de presse
"This is a unique, ambitious, and important book. It is about computer system design principles, and not the usual mechanics of how things work. These principles are typically embedded in research papers (for those of which are to be found at all), and no book I know of makes so many of them explicit and its focal point." –Joe Pasquale, UC San Diego
"The book is a great introduction to system design issues that are only taught at few courses in few universities, even-though they show up in computer systems everywhere. This is a very good and easy read for any one in computer industry. It describes all parts of computer systems and how they interact very well. The extension of the book is online and many chapters are available for free to download. The chapter on Naming is worth the money of the book. I have not seen the discussion of naming in such detail and simple terms anywhere. The authors are very well respected professors at MIT and have experience in operating systems and computer system since its early days. I highly recommend this book to any hardware or software student or professional engineer."--Amazon.com 5 star review THE missing link, January 16, 2010 By clivebaker "clivebaker"
"[A] unique of several design patterns that are used as building blocks in computer systems. The primary novelty in Saltzer and Kaashoek’s book is the fresh and original presentation of several related topics. The book is logically divided into two parts: Part 1 is included in the hard-copy book; Part 2 is only available online…. I highly recommend this well-written and well-structured book to several groups of readers: undergraduate students can use it as a gentle introduction to computer architecture and OSs, and graduate students and more advanced readers will enjoy its philosophical and design-oriented aspects. In fact, the book may eventually become a classic and a must-read for any computer scientist."--Computing Reviews
Présentation de l'éditeur
Principles of Computer System Design is the first textbook to take a principles-based approach to the computer system design. It identifies, examines, and illustrates fundamental concepts in computer system design that are common across operating systems, networks, database systems, distributed systems, programming languages, software engineering, security, fault tolerance, and architecture.
Through carefully analyzed case studies from each of these disciplines, it demonstrates how to apply these concepts to tackle practical system design problems. To support the focus on design, the text identifies and explains abstractions that have proven successful in practice such as remote procedure call, client/service organization, file systems, data integrity, consistency, and authenticated messages. Most computer systems are built using a handful of such abstractions. The text describes how these abstractions are implemented, demonstrates how they are used in different systems, and prepares the reader to apply them in future designs.
The book is recommended for junior and senior undergraduate students in Operating Systems, Distributed Systems, Distributed Operating Systems and/or Computer Systems Design courses; and professional computer systems designers.
- Concepts of computer system design guided by fundamental principles.
- Cross-cutting approach that identifies abstractions common to networking, operating systems, transaction systems, distributed systems, architecture, and software engineering.
- Case studies that make the abstractions real: naming (DNS and the URL); file systems (the UNIX file system); clients and services (NFS); virtualization (virtual machines); scheduling (disk arms); security (TLS).
- Numerous pseudocode fragments that provide concrete examples of abstract concepts.
- Extensive support. The authors and MIT OpenCourseWare provide on-line, free of charge, open educational resources, including additional chapters, course syllabi, board layouts and slides, lecture videos, and an archive of lecture schedules, class assignments, and design projects.

The chapter on Naming is worth the money of the book. I have not seen the discussion of naming in such detail and simple terms anywhere,
The authors are very well respected professors at MIT and have experience in operating systems and computer system since its early days.
I highly recommend this book to any hardware or software student or professional engnineer.
The reading is extremely dense and difficult to follow. While information density is never a bad thing - dissecting vast knowledge that is organized and described poorly is a terrible exercise in frustration. In the creation of this text, the authors set themselves up for a magnificent challenge: to convey their superlative knowledge of computer architecture in a way others may learn from effectively. I believe the authors ultimately failed this challenge.
As a student, attempting to extract information from this book is extremely frustrating. Nearly every, single sentence reads somewhat like a vocabulary exercise - only the vocabulary and language is entirely relative to other densely worded and entirely relative bits of information within the text. If the authors intended this book to be stored within a piece of RAM and read by a machine I'm sure the text would be entirely useful. Unfortunately, this book is intended for human beings to construct a framework of knowledge. We do so by connecting new information with frameworks already established in reality. This text fails miserably to serve that purpose.
I do not wish to disrespect the authors' authority on the subject, nor do I wish to undermine their writing ability. Nevertheless, after quickly realizing complete frustration with this text I feel compelled, as well as obligated, to share my experience with it.
