Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a set of industrial hardened workstations running Linux 3.8 ES. Each workstation utilizes a RAID 0 configuration utilizing (2) 300GB SCSI drives. Both systems are designed to capture large amounts of process data and telemetry. The data is captured in an Oracle database and then processed with post processing software.
One of the workstations runs fine and has experienced no failures. The second system will run for an variable amount of time and then crash, resulting in a corrupted superblock on the RAID.
The problematic system has been rebuilt with Linux only and configured. I am running a stress test right now and it does not seem to cause the system to crash.
My next step will be to clear Oracle of suspicion. I seem to remember Oracle being a part of a realtime data collection problem years ago.
I will post further details. I would appreciate any advise on stress test utilities for the hardware, and a good way to beat Oracle to death.
