Rosetta Stone for Unix

Rosetta Stone for Unix provides a matrix showing the tools used on various Unix systems to do a whole range of tasks. I was introduced to it by the incomparable James D.

Subtitled, “A Sysadmin’s Unixersal Translator (ROSETTA STONE) OR What do they call that in this world?”, what this site lets you do is leverage your knowledge of one Unix system to do things in another. For example, comparing AIX to Linux I found the following under “Show/set kernel parameters”:

Linux AIX
proc/*
/proc/sys/*sysctl
/etc/sysctl.conf
vmo
ioo
schedo

 

Highly recommended.
