Which are the best bookes for Linux system administration?
Hi Guys,

Can anyone recommend me the best books for Linux system and server administration and monitoring?

I can't claim they are the best, but there is a lot of good free stuff at the Free Technology Academy.

If you need a book or maybe a bible i recommend Linux Administration Handbook or even better the Unix version depending on your needs. They're a bit old but still great.

Best regards
