Docker book designed for SysAdmins, SREs, Operations staff, Developers and DevOps who are interested in deploying the open source container service Docker.
In this book, we'll walk you through installing, deploying, managing, and extending Docker. We're going to do that by first introducing you to the basics of Docker and its components. Then we'll start to use Docker to build containers and services to perform a variety of tasks.
We're going to take you through the development lifecycle, from testing to production, and see where Docker fits in and how it can make your life easier. We'll make use of Docker to build test environments for new projects, demonstrate how to integrate Docker with continuous integration workflow, and then how to build application services and platforms. Finally, we'll show you how to use Docker's API and how to extend Docker yourself.
We'll teach you how to:
* Install Docker.
* Take your first steps with a Docker container.
* Build Docker images.
* Manage and share Docker images.
* Run and manage more complex Docker containers.
* Deploy Docker containers as part of your testing pipeline.
* Build multi-container applications and environments.
* Learn about orchestration using Compose and Swarm for the orchestration of Docker containers and Consul for service discovery.
* Explore the Docker API.
* Getting Help and Extending Docker.
A book designed for SysAdmins, Operations staff, Developers and DevOps who are interested in deploying a log management solution using the open source Elasticsearch, Logstash & Kibana (ELK) stack.
In this book we will walk you through installing, deploying, managing and extending Logstash. We're going to do that by introducing you to Example.com, where you're going to start a new job as one of its SysAdmins. The first project you'll be in charge of is developing its new log management solution.
We'll teach you how to:
* Install and deploy Logstash.
* Ship events from a Logstash Shipper to a central Logstash server.
* Filter incoming events using a variety of techniques.
* Add structured logging to your applications.
* Output those events to a selection of useful destinations.
* Use Logstash's awesome web interface Kibana.
* Scale out your Logstash implementation as your environment grows.
* Quickly and easily extend Logstash to deliver additional functionality that you might need.
By the end of the book, you should have a functional and effective log management solution that you can deploy into your own environment.

Pulling Strings with Puppet: Configuration Management Made Easy is the first book to introduce the powerful Puppet system administration tool. Author James Turnbull will guide you through Puppet’s key features, showing you how to install and configure the software, create automated Puppet tasks, known as recipes, and even create reporting solutions and extend Puppet further to your own needs. A bonus chapter is included covering the Facter library, which makes it a breeze to automate the retrieval of server configuration details such as IP and MAC addresses.
The books real-world configurations and supporting materials will enable you to deploy Nagios and integrate other tools (like MRTG and Snort) on a helpful step-by-step basis. Integrating Nagios with a variety of other tools can add more functionality to its internal monitoring and alerting capabilities. The book covers additional topics like security, redundancy and failover, and plug-in development. And it shows you how to create your own Nagios plug-ins, to monitor devices for which Nagios may not provide plug-ins.
