The WebReboot Plugin for Nagios is a suite of commands that can be used within Nagios to monitor a server and take corrective action if necessary via the WebReboot line of products. For example, the plugin can be used to alert you if a host is powered down, versus simply not responding to network requests. Likewise, it can be used to reboot a server if a host fails to respond to ping, or to shut down a server when a critical temperature threshold is exceeded. The commands can be mixed-and-matched with all existing Nagios commands, maximizing total network coverage.
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.
Heceta is part of the Fogcutter suite of tools for building intelligent applications. It is an "enterprise social search" search engine that leverages all of the various bits of information from Neddick, Quoddy, and other source of "social" knowledge to provide better, deeper, and more insightful search results than you can get from simple document content analysis. Intranet searching in organizations is usually very poor, largely because page-rank type algorithms don't work well due to the lack of links between documents. But by supplementing the content analysis with scoring based on tags, social graph connections, activity-stream information, etc., and applying machine-learning / artificial-intelligence techniques, Heceta can do a superior job of locating the knowledge and information a user needs.
Rerun is a lightweight tool-building framework useful to those implementing management procedure with shell scripts. It will help you organize your implementation into well-defined modular interfaces. Collections of management modules can be archived and delivered as a single executable to facilitate team handoffs. Using the "stubbs" module, rerun will even facilitate unit tests. When users execute rerun module commands, rerun can record execution data into log files which can later be replayed.
KeyBox is a Web-based SSH console for executing commands and managing multiple systems simultaneously. It allows you to share terminal commands and upload files to all your systems. Once the sessions have been opened you can select a single system or any combination on which to run your commands. Also, additional system administrators can be added and their terminal sessions and history can be audited.
BitNami Drupal stack is an easy-to-install distribution of the Drupal CMS software. It includes pre-configured, ready-to-run versions of Apache, MySQL, and PHP so users can get Drupal installed and up and running in minutes after answering a few questions. Currently, Linux and Windows are supported.
Puppet lets you centrally manage every important aspect of your system using a cross-platform specification language that manages all the separate elements normally aggregated in different files, including users, cron jobs, and hosts, along with obviously discrete elements like packages, services, and files. Its simple declarative specification language provides powerful classing abilities for drawing out the similarities between hosts while allowing them to be as specific as necessary, and it handles dependency and prerequisite relationships between objects clearly and explicitly.
