UNIX Filesystems

This book covers the history of UNIX describing how filesystems were implemented in the early research editions of UNIX up to today’s highly scalable enterprise class UNIX systems. All of the major changes in the history of UNIX that pertain to filesystems are covered along with a view of how some of the more well known filesystems are implemented. Not forgetting the user interface to filesystems, the book also presents the file and filesystem-level system call and library-level APIs that programmers expect to see. By providing this context it is easier to understand the services that filesystems are expected to provide and therefore why they are implemented the way they are. S. D. Pate ISBN 0-471-16483-6
