AutoNOC is a high performance, production integrated, peer-to-peer network operations management platform for Windows and Linux. It provides real-time historical analysis, root cause, fault detection, reporting, alerts and alarms, and no-nonsense correlation. It is an interoperable vendor independent solution with built-in support for Microsoft, Cisco, Linux, IBM, and other major technologies. Additionally it offers many novel capabilities, including end user personalization, easy scalability, compressed historical databases, infinite histories, event archiving (it works as a syslog server), and multi-language support.
Automatos provides tools for automated performance analysis, capacity planning, and real-time monitoring of services across multiple platforms (Linux, NT/2000/XP, AIX, Solaris, Tru64, and HP-UX). The performance analysis service assists in identification or prevention of problems with computers within a company's network. The capacity wizard provides hardware upgrade planning support, suggestions being based on current (or simulated) growth rate. Real-time monitoring allows users to remotely monitor their machines from either a Web or a WAP console, generating notifications based on user-defined thresholds. Automatos is a low-intrusion system that uses strong encryption and compresses data for optimal and minimum bandwidth usage. Reports are generated in PDF format in several different languages. Ad-hoc online report generation and customization is also available.
BRL-CAD is a powerful constructive solid geometry solid modeling system that includes an interactive geometry editor, ray-tracing support for rendering and geometric analysis, path-tracing for realistic image synthesis, network distributed framebuffer support, and image and signal-processing tools.
BixData is a cluster management tool that includes monitoring and system administration features. It monitors services (HTTP, ping, POP3, SMTP), performance, and processes. It has a management console for VMWare and Xen that supports multiple virtual machine hosts and guests. It can create critical notifications and send email alerts for any system event (HTTP, ping, CPU, memory, SMART diagnostics, VM stats). A graphical desktop supports real-time dynamic graphs. The runtime agents and server components are lightweight and easy to set up and run.
Bootchart is a tool for performance analysis and visualization of the GNU/Linux boot process. Resource utilization data and process information are collected during the boot process, and can later be displayed in a PNG, SVG, or EPS encoded chart. Analyzing the chart will help in finding opportunities for optimization.
Cactus is a general, modular, parallel environment for solving systems of partial differential equations. The code has been developed over many years by a large international collaboration of numerical relativity and computational science research groups and can be used to provide a portable platform for solving any system of partial differential equations.
The Contest program is designed to test system responsiveness by running Linux kernel compilation under a number of different load conditions. It is designed to compare different kernels, not different machines. It uses real workloads you would expect to find for short periods of time in everyday machines, but sustains them for the duration of a kernel compile to increase the signal to noise ratio.
