I have been working on Linux for last two years and I learned alot of things about Linux. And now I'm thinking that I should start learning Solaris also knowing that I have a knowledge to jump for Solaris.
Can someone please recommend good Book for Solaris.
At my new job, they want me to use a solaris 8 operating system, but all my coding experience has been on linux. Linux had a lot of tools built into the system, but it seems like the solaris I'm using is extremely stripped down.
I was wondering if someone can tell me how to install vim or emacs (preferably emacs) on solaris 8. I tried google but I couldn't find any download links for solaris 8.
I am benchmarking local socket performance on Linux and Solaris for a project. For some reason I cannot find out, performance on Solaris is roughly 100x worse than on Linux. In Linux, opening a socket, exchanging one very short (2 char) message each way and closing it takes about 10us elapsed time. On Solaris, the same thing takes about 1000us.
