JCons provides a library that bring color to your Java console. The Java console gives no methods to change the foreground or background color. With help of this library, one can make error messages red and success messages green, for example. Most Unix terminals can deal with ESC sequences, so they are used to make the Java console colorful.
TagEventor is a project to enable radically simple computer usage by creating physical-object-based user interfaces. It does this using commercially available (and relatively cheap), standardized RFID technology in the form of small, simple USB connected contacted card/tag readers and small, cheap tags. The project was started based on products available from the "touchatag" company, which has clients for Windows and Mac, and run their own Web service to enable many interesting Web-based applications. However, no simple, lightweight Linux client was available, and the Web focus meant that some client-focused functionality was not possible. The software is currently a daemon that monitors the presence of one or more RFID tags on a connected reader and generates "system events" when tags are placed on it or removed from it.
jniThreadCPUUsage is a Java library to get the amount of user and system CPU time used per thread. This is done via JNI, which calls getrusage() on the system. getrusage() is only available on Linux 2.6.26 or later and Solaris. One useful application of this is measuring the amount of CPU time used for a servlet request. getrusage() CPU time reporting is better than using the real time clock because it measures actual CPU time used and disregards times when the thread is idle or waiting (such as when it is waiting for network I/O).
Nit is a statically typed object-oriented programming language. The goal is to propose a statically typed programming language where structure is not a pain. It has a simple, straightforward style and can usually be picked up quickly, particularly by anyone who has programmed before. While object-oriented, it allows procedural styles. The Nit Compiler (nitc) produces efficient machine language binaries.
Mod_Dosblock is an Apache module written to provide Dos/DDoS protection at the HTTP layer. It works on HTTP URLs or HTTP headers, and can throttle requests based on the incoming URI/header pattern. This module can be particularly useful in an architecture where the content serving Web servers sit behind reverse proxy Apache servers exposed to the Internet. The gateway servers can throttle/DoS protect HTTP queries, saving the actual serving Web servers.
By adding a user-friendly interface, predefined best practices, and fine-grained compliance reporting to your own IT configuration rules, Rudder enables enterprises to rapidly benefit from increased productivity and insight throughout their IT operations. It can measure the drift of IT infrastructures. It enables you to automate installation and configuration of services, continuously verify and repair them, and centralize information and knowledge about your infrastructure and generate compliance reports, helping you analyze and control the deviation between a service’s current state and its nominal behavior.
