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.
The Open Hardware Certification Program (OHCP) Test Suite is a collection of tests to verify the compatibility of your hardware with Open Source operating systems. Tests have been contributed by multiple authors and organizations, and are bundled with documentation, test procedures, and some automation scripts to help run the tests.
Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) is a framework and set of services for supporting system-level performance monitoring and performance management. It provides a unifying abstraction for all of the interesting performance data in a system, and allows client applications to easily retrieve and process any subset of that data using a single API. A client-server architecture allows multiple clients to monitor the same host, and a single client to monitor multiple hosts. Archive logging and replay are integrated so that a client application can use the same API to process real-time data from a host or historical data from an archive.
PureLoad is a load testing tool that simulates thousands of users executing requests against server based applications. It can be used to verify that your application will meet the expected performance criteria. PureLoad reports quality and performance problems, as well as detailed statistics gathered during a load test. PureLoad also includes extensive support for easy recording and testing of Web-based applications. The HTTP Recorder ease the process of capturing HTTP and HTTPS requests into PureLoad scenarios. The Web Crawler is used to scan a static Web site for general errors, and it can also be used to generate PureLoad scenarios to be used in a load test.
ethstats is a script that quickly measures network device throughput. It works by parsing the /proc/net/dev file that the Linux kernel maintains, and thus utilizes a negligible amount of CPU time. ethstats shows the throughput of each device in both megabits per second and packets per second.
