April 2002 Classique Us
As long as there's been a Web, people have been trying to make it faster. The maturation of the Web has meant more users, more data, more features, and consequently longer waits on the Web. Improved performance has become a critical factor in determining the usability of the Web in general and of individual sites in particular. This text is about getting the best possible performance from the Web: streamlining Web content, getting optimal performance from a browser, tuning both client and server hardware, and maximizing the capacity of the network itself. It offers concrete advice for quick results - the "blunt instruments" for improving crippled performance right away. The book then shifts gears to give a conceptual background of the principles of computing performance. The latter half of the book examines each element of a Web transaction - from client to network to server - to find the weak links in the chain and show how to strengthen them. Topics covered include: Web site architecture, security, reliability, and their impact on performance; discussion of scalability of Java on multi-processor servers; Perl scripts for writing Web performance spiders that handle logins, cookies, SSL, and more; instructions on how to use Perl DBI and the open source program gunplot to generate performance graphs on the fly; and coverage of Rstat, a Unix-based open source utility for gathering performance statistics remotely. In addition, the book includes many more examples and graphs of real-world performance problems and their solutions, and has been updated for Java 2.

Whether you're administering a Web site, managing an intranet, or just browsing the Web, performance should be a chief concern. In Web Performance Tuning, author Patrick Killelea tackles this challenging topic with a methodical string of problems and possible solutions. This title is most beneficial for those maintaining Web sites but offers several browser-related tips and solid technical background for users of any level.

The first part of this book discusses the basic performance challenges for both the browser and server sides of the equation and advises on an overall approach for identifying and attacking performance bottlenecks. The author offers many important questions for you to keep in mind and some useful techniques for measuring Web performance. This section wraps up with a few case studies that exhibit common problems.

The meat of the book is an in-depth look at all of the aspects of Web performance. The author begins with the client browser and operating-system software, discusses network hardware and protocols, and finally addresses the complex nature of server configurations. He finishes with a discussion of Common Gateway Interface (CGI) and Java scripts and some quick coverage of tuning Web databases.

Throughout the book, Killelea addresses popular application software titles, but with an emphasis on Unix servers. While Web Performance Tuning is a helpful tool for tweaking your Web connections, it also serves as an excellent primer on the technical details of the Web. --Stephen Plain -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


"This book still scores highly on the sections which are general in their scope, particularly the new chapters which have been written for this edition. The more specific sections feel dates, and are likely to further age extremely quickly. Overall the book is still a good source for advice on identifying performance bottlenecks and suggesting ways to tune the infrastructure to eliminate them." - Joel Smith, News@UKUUG, October 2002

5.0 von 5 Sternen Patrick Has Done It Again! 30. Juni 2000
Patrick has not only written a fabulouse book but he is an awsome guy! ... His book is really great for a person who wants to know about computers. I happened to read the version ... and it was so well written that even then I could understand the details of computer programming! In conclusion JUST BUY THE STUPID BOOK!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Concise, complete, and credible 10. Mai 2000
This book is both a great reference and superb introductory guide to the essentials of tuning a web site. All the elements are covered, with chapters on client hardware, network protocols, and server software to name a few. How each element affects performance is discussed along with a description of tools to monitor and tune performance. The chapter on content should be required reading for anyone putting together HTML pages no matter how large their site. The prose is readable and each chapter is nicely summarized with several concise "Key Recommendations". Unless you are building your own web site from scratch, you won't have to know everything in this book, but you may want to anyway, if for no other reason than to know who to blame when your web site is not performing well.
As the web is changing every day some of the information is dated, especially the chapters on running server side applications. The chapter on CGI is decent, but the chapters on database and Java tuning are cursory and best covered by books dedicated to those subjects. There is nothing on active server pages. Also a chapter on balancing security versus performance would have been welcome, and hopefully will be included in a second edition.
There is definitely more about UNIX than NT in the book. This doesn't matter when doing hardware and network tuning and Microsoft certainly does not help with their license restriction on the publication of IIS benchmarks. The reality is that there are more web servers running UNIX or Linux variants than NT. However, with the rapid proliferation of active server pages more should be included on NT in a future edition.
Getting usable information on performance tuning is sometimes very difficult.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good! 28. April 2000
Von Abu Amr
This is a good book if you run a moderately large web site (Upto around 2 million hits a month). If you are much larger than that you will not benefit much from this book and should check out Apache Modules with Perl and C also by O'reilly. This book covers capacity planning, web performance measurement, and shows some case studies and how these sites were able to improve their performance. It also shows you how to get better performance from the Client side as well as the server side. Most of the client side discussions are useless however the server side discussion gives good examples. There is a discussion of different server OS and web server software and the benefits of each. Also covered is do you need a database? Or can you get by with flat files.
I recommend this book for medium size sites. If you are very large, or are using mostly dynamic content (85-90% Perl scripts) then you won't get much out of this book. Your problems are on a larger scale than this book, but for the majority of people this book is great

I haven't finished it yet, but it's very interesting, complete approach, methodological and comprehensive. I would recommend it to any webmaster, web administrator or simply someone who wants to understand what's under the hood. Buy *unix ! Bye NT! :-)

5.0 von 5 Sternen excellent introduction to web performance 19. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Web Performance Tuning is the place to start if you're in charge of a web site's performance. It at least introduces all of the issues you are likely to run into. It could be improved by more detailed information on one particular web server, say Apache, and more information on assuring reliability, but as a place to start in improving web site performance, it's the best book out there.
