360-FAAR (Firewall Analysis Audit and Repair) is an offline, command line, Perl firewall policy manipulation tool to filter, compare to logs, merge, translate, and output firewall commands for new policies, in Checkpoint dbedit, Cisco ASA, or ScreenOS commands. It is all contained in one file. It can read policy and logs for: Checkpoint FW1 (in odumper.csv / logexport format), Netscreen ScreenOS (in get config / syslog format), and Cisco ASA (show run / syslog format). It uses both inclusive and exclusive CIDR and text filters, permitting you to split large policies into smaller ones for virutalization at the same time as removing unused connectivity. It supports policy to log association, object translation, rulebase reordering and simplification, rule moves, and duplicate matching automatically. It allows you to seamlessly move rules to where you need them. 'print' mode creates a spreadsheet for your audit needs with one command.


Release Notes: This release includes much stronger consistency checks against the internal network and service object, and group and rule definitions after each round of processing. The netscreen reader now reads "interface dip" and rule "dip-id" statements and adds appropriate objects and NAT translation rules. Warnings are printed for unknown Cisco object group objects found in policies during the configuration read. NAT SRC DST translations in "rr" mode now support range objects using the range start address only, and network objects are now translated to their network bits only.

Download Website 01 Nov 23:28 bandwidth 0.32k


Bandwidth is primarily a memory bandwidth benchmark, but it can also measure network bandwidth. It measures the maximum memory bandwidth of each part of the memory system, including main memory, L1, L2, and L3 caches, framebuffer memory, and register-to-register. For many tests, it performs both sequential memory accesses as well as random memory accesses to provide a more real-world performance estimate. The tests support Linux (Intel), Windows/Cygwin, and Mac OS X. Its core routines are in assembly for x86 and x86-64 architectures with both SSE4 and AVX support. Bandwidth also includes automatic graphing of the results, stored to a BMP image file. The network bandwidth tests support Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows/Cygwin.

Release Notes: This fixes some minor AVX issues.
