OpenArm is an implementation of the Open Group's Application Response Measurement (ARM) standard. It provides a complete implementation of the ARM 4.0 Java interfaces, as well as ARM agent functionality that allows you to record your transaction events as log4J logging events, JMS messages, SNMP traps, JMX notifications, or as records in a relational database.
The svnmailer is a tool that is usually called by a subversion hook to submit commit notifications in various ways (at the moment: mail via SMTP or a pipe to a sendmail like program, news via NNTP, or CIA live tracker notification via XML-RPC). It is derived from the original mailer.py distributed with subversion, but should be much more consistent, more extensible, and have many more features.
novi is a tool for finding the latest-version RPMs in a tree. It can be used to create Kickstart trees or yum repositories that contain the updated RPMS. In the case of Kickstart, this means machines come to life with the updates already applied. Using novi for a yum repository trims the size of the repodata files, which reduces client download and processing time.
NagiosAppender is a pure Java implementation of a Log4j appender that allows the developer/administrator to send log records to Nagios via the NCSA server (using the push model). It provides a simple solution for Nagios administrators whose only alternative is to implement a polling function against against the output of a standard Log4j appender. The log4j configuration file provides for user-specific mappings between Log4j levels and Nagios levels. The configuration file also allows the user to select whether to set the Nagios 'service' and 'host' programmatically via Log4j MDC, or via the config file. Later releases support XOR encryption.
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.
mod_myvhost is an Apache module for dynamically configured name-based mass virtual hosting with PHP. Virtual host configurations and PHP settings are stored in a MySQL database. There is no need to have every vhost in apache's configuration file, or to restart apache after a configuration change. It is able to change PHP settings dynamically for any vhost. By default, it sets open_basedir as the vhost's rootdir, but you can change almost any parameter that exists in php.ini. For example, you can turn on safe_mode or register_globals for a particular vhost.
