The sendfile facility allows a regular file to be sent out to a stream socket. The system call was first implemented in FreeBSD 3.1. This provides many performance benefits for various server appliances. Andre Opperman has implemented an improved sendfile facility for FreeBSD that has so far shown 45% less CPU usage without TCP segmentation offload and 83% less CPU usage with TCP segmentation offload. This is a great improvement over the previous implementation.

I've just finished two reviews on Ubuntu related books (The Official Ubuntu Book published by Prentice Hall, August 2006 for The Linux Tutorial site and Ubuntu Linux for Non-Geeks published by No Starch Press, August 2006 for Linux Magazine...appearing in the October 2006 edition) so I wasn't really interested in chapters titled "What is Ubuntu", "Installing Ubuntu" or "The X Window System". To some degree, all Linux distro instructional texts must cover the basic information about what Linux is and how it works so I'm not trying to be cynical. However, when you've read the same material in book after book, it tends to get old after awhile. I was more interested at what made this book different. What makes Ubuntu "unleashed"?
