Cfengine is a tool for setting up and maintaining BSD and System-5-like operating system optionally attached to a TCP/IP network. You can think of cfengine as a very high level language, much higher level than Perl or shell: a single statement can result in many hundreds of operations being performed on multiple hosts. Cfengine is good at performing a lot of common system administration tasks, and allows you to build on its strengths with your own scripts.
GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.
Lynis is an auditing and hardening tool for Unix derivatives like Linux/BSD/Solaris. It scans systems to detect software and security issues. Besides security-related information, it will also scan for general system information, installed packages, and possible configuration mistakes. The software is aimed at assisting automated auditing, software patch management, and vulnerability and malware scanning of Unix-based systems.

OpenAMQ is a fast, stable, free implementation of the AMQP (www.amqp.org) messaging protocol. It gives applications high-performance messaging (delivery of opaque data) across loosely connected networks. It is capable of handling up to 600k messages per second depending on the hardware, with a latency around 300 microseconds. It is multithreaded and supports C/C++ and Java on Linux, AIX, Solaris, OS/X, Windows, and OpenVMS.
STOR2RRD provides storage performance and capacity monitoring for IBM DS8000, IBM Storwize, and IBM SVC. It generates historical, future trends, and nearly "realtime" performance utilization graphs of monitored storages. It graphically presents the IO rate, data throughput, and response times for all Ports, Pools, Ranks, Mdisks, Volumes (LUNs), and drives. It collects complete physical and logical configuration of all storages.
SYMPLiK EXZELLENZ is a program to manipulate table data in Oracle database by using a Microsoft Excel file (xls or xlsx format). Unlike Oracle WebADI, More4Apps, or other Excel-driven solutions, this program does not use Office VBA (macros) to process the data. It is a pure Java solution incorporated with Apache POI and the Oracle JDBC driver to download, upload, insert, update, and delete data from Oracle database tables. It is Linux-friendly for Open Office users as long as the spreadsheet is in Excel formats.
