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.
The Java Application Monitor (JAMon) is a free, simple, high performance, thread safe, Java API that allows developers to easily monitor production applications. JAMon can be used to determine application performance bottlenecks, user/application interactions, and application scalability. JAMon gathers summary statistics such as hits, execution times (total, average, minimum, maximum, standard deviation), and simultaneous application requests. JAMon statistics are displayed in the sortable JAMon report.
cdck is a simple program for verifying CD/DVD quality. Even if all files on the disc are readable, some sectors having bad timing and could become unreadable in the future. The tool reads a disc sector by sector, recording all reading timings, and then tells you its verdict. It can optionally write a timing table into a text file usable by gnuplot, from which graphs can be drawn.
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.
SLAMD is a Java application designed for stress testing and performance analysis of network-based applications. Although it was originally designed for benchmarking directory servers, it is actually very flexible and can be used to test applications using a wide range of protocols like LDAP, HTTP, POP, IMAP, and SMTP, and can also interact with relational databases using JDBC. In addition, it provides a Java-based API for developing custom workloads, and a scripting engine and record and playback tools that may also be used in the load generation process.
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.
