Michael W Lucas, critically acclaimed author of many BSD books, introduces the long awaited FreeBSD Mastery: Advanced ZFS co-written by Allan Jude. This book is the follow-up to FreeBSD Mastery: ZFS, which released last year.

ZFS improves everything about systems administration. Once you peek under the hood, though, ZFS’ bewildering array of knobs and tunables can overwhelm anyone. ZFS experts can make their servers zing—and now you can, too, with FreeBSD Mastery: Advanced ZFS.
