Braa is a tool for making SNMP queries. It is able to query hundreds or thousands of hosts simultaneously, while being completely single-threaded. It does not need any SNMP libraries, as it is equipped with its own SNMP engine. However, it's good to have a complete SNMP package including "snmptranslate" installed somewhere, because for speed reasons, there is no ASN.1 parser in Braa, and all the SNMP OIDs need to be specified numerically.
SnortSMS is a highly configurable sensor management system that provides the ability to remotely administer Snort [and Barnyard] based Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), push configuration files, add/edit rules, and monitor system health and statistics, all from a simple and clean Web interface console. Whether you have one or multiple Snort sensors, it can help unify and syncronize all sensor configurations.
NEPM monitors and reports uptime, critical events and their predecessors, access rates, bytes-served rates, and error rates for network node equipment. Hardware and software elements within the nodes are tracked and reported separately to make possible rapid fault isolation. It is a very general, highly configurable, two-part software system that captures and analyzes logged performance data from IP-networked equipment and reports it via email and Web pages. Current conditions and history from systems based on Windows NT/2000, Unix, and Unix-style operating systems can be tracked and reported. Most major server, switch and router systems can be monitored, without running agents on the target systems. NEPM itself is system-independent and can be hosted on either a Unix or Win NT system or a combination of these with equal ease.
sql2data fetches DNS information from an SQL database and dumps then in tinydns-data format into the file 'data'. Additional static DNS data from the text file static_data are copied into 'data'. sql2data optionally executes 'make' upon successful export/dump. Backups can be made to the files old_data and good_data.cdb. Optionally, DNS NOTIFY packets may be sent to the different nameservers referenced for the different zones.
eINIT is an alternative init system. It's quite fast, since it can potentially be used without the help of any scripting at all, but it is still flexible and extremely modular. The focus is on speed and parallelisation, mostly with embedded devices and low-downtime servers in mind, and benchmarks do suggest that it's doing a fairly good job at that. It compiles cleanly (and should thus work, provided someone writes appropriate modules) on Linux, FreeBSD, and Darwin/Mac OS X.
