Charm++ is a portable adaptive runtime system for parallel applications. Application developers create an object-based decomposition of the problem of interest, and the runtime system manages issues of communication, mapping, load balancing, fault tolerance, and more. Sequential code implementing the methods of these parallel objects is written in C++. Calls to libraries in C++, C, and Fortran are common and straightforward. Charm++ is portable across individual workstations, clusters, accelerators (Cell SPEs and GPUs), and supercomputers such as those sold by IBM (Blue Gene, POWER) and Cray (XT3/4/5/6). Applications based on Charm++ are used on at least 5 of the 20 most powerful computers in the world.
Peludo is a system that provides a toolchain and a runtime to create and launch self-contained, platform independent, injectable, network transportable, non-static applications that can be dynamically extended on-demand. From a security assessment perspective, it could be seen as a tool to create advanced payloads: entire libraries and multithreading programs can be deployed over the network without touching the target file system.
MyQoS Free Version is a bandwidth management solution based on FreeBSD 4.X. It provides all the necessary features for a small ISP to do QoS. It is limited to 2Mb/s unless you upgrade to the Standard Version. It is distributed as an appliance image. This image can be burnt to CD for testing before installation.
freeDiameter is a framework in C for supporting the Diameter Base Protocol (RFC3588). Diameter is a protocol for authentication, authorization, and accounting; it is the successor of RADIUS. Applications can be loaded as modules. Example applications include a Diameter EAP server, a Diameter SIP server, and Diameter Accounting.
LibCarvPathRepository is a library that provides the low level functionality for creating and using a (single, large, growing, sparse) file as an archive of (forensic) media images and other files. LibCarvPathRepository is to be used in conjunction with CarvFS. The CarvFS "raw" module is growing archive aware, making it possible to add (forensic) media images to a mounted raw archive. The LibCarvPathRepository library provides the low level multi-process safe API for appending an entity to the growing archive. Blocks of NULL data are automatically converted to sparse content to keep down the disk usage of the archive. After the image has been added to the archive, the library provides the carvpath of the newly entered image within the archive, making it possible to hand this carvpath to other carvfs aware tools.
Gossimon is a gossip-based distributed monitoring system for a cluster of Linux nodes. Each node in the cluster periodically send information about itself and others to a randomly selected node. This way, each node constantly receives information about cluster nodes. This information is locally maintained (constantly updated) by each node and can be used by various clients for monitoring and resource allocation. The gossip protocols used by gossimon are very robust to node failure, and the information quality is hardly degraded even when large parts of the cluster are taken down. The package contains: infod (the daemon responsible for collecting and sending information for other nodes); mmon (a curses-based monitoring client displaying information about cluster nodes); and infod-client (a command-line client that retrieves cluster information in XML format).
