This program was written to help test the Open Projects dancer-ircd. It simulates client activity by selecting random servers to connect to and random actions out of a list. It can handle hundreds of simultaneous connections, and can replay a log file of what it has previously done in order to help isolate the actions which cause the daemon to have problems, using methods such as binary chops. Please note that although at this point code is only written to test ircds, it is hoped that this will be extended in the future to other types of daemons.
Spumoni provides an open framework for monitoring applications using SNMP. Specifically, it enables any program that can be queried via local commands to be health-checked by OpenNMS, Tivoli, OpenView, MRTG, RRDTool, and many others. This allows admins to employ enterprise-level monitoring capabilities for even non-SNMP-enabled applications.
SmokePing is a network latency monitor. It measures network latency to a configurable set of destinations on the network, and displays its findings in easy-to-read Web pages. SmokePing has support for distributed monitoring as well as for dealing with dynamic IP addresses. SmokePing uses RRDtool as its logging and graphing back-end, making the system very efficient. The presentation of the data on the Web is done through a CGI with some AJAX capabilities for interactive graph exploration.
The Router Audit Tool (rat) downloads configurations of router devices running IOS to be audited, and then checks them against the settings defined in the benchmark. For each configuration examined, it produces a report listing the following: a list of each rule checked with a pass/fail score, a raw overall score, a weighted overall score (1-10), and a list of IOS commands that will correct problems identified.
The Open CORBA Benchmarking Suite measures several basic performance aspects of various CORBA brokers. The suite produces an XML output that can be submitted to a searchable database of broker performance data and browsed in a graphical form. The suite is portable to a number of platforms and brokers.
PHP Profiler Class performs code profiling and aids performance optimisation by locating the areas of code that consume most processing time. The reports it produces provide information on the number of calls to a code section, as well as the percentage and total of time spent on a section. Timing of multiple nested code sections is possible. It requires function calls to be manually inserted in the code being profiled.
