CacheGuard Appliance is an all-in-one OS appliance providing firewall, antivirus, caching, compression, bandwidth allocation, load balancing, reverse and forward proxy, high availability, Web application firewall, URL guarding, and more. It can be purchased as an OS to install on your server, as an OS to run in a virtual machine, or as a hardware appliance.
adsuck is a small DNS server that spoofs blacklisted addresses and forwards all other queries. The idea is to be able to prevent connections to undesirable sites such as ad servers, crawlers, etc. It can be used locally, for the road warrior, or on the network perimeter in order to protect local machines from malicious sites.
sessiond allows a cluster of SSL/TLS servers to share their session caches in order to prevent each node of the cluster from negotiating a separate session. SSL/TLS session is basically a set of secret values (symmetric encryption keys, MAC secrets) shared between a client and a server. The use of asymmetric cryptography required to establish new sessions is the main performance bottleneck of the SSL/TLS protocol.
iMacros for Chrome is an extension that allows you to automate repetitive tasks like visiting the same sites every day, filling out forms, and remembering passwords. It can automatically fill Web forms that stretch over several pages. It can automate the download and upload of images, files, or entire pages (with or without images). iMacros includes a user agent switcher, functions to download PDF and Flash, and ad-blocking and image-blocking functions. iMacros can automatically read data from a Web site and export it to CSV files. You can use this feature to download stock quotes, gather and compare Web store prices, and more. Web professionals can use iMacros for functional, performance, and regression testing of Web applications.
The Apache Traffic Server (TS or ATS) is a modular, high-performance reverse proxy server, generally comparable to Squid. It was created by Inktomi, and distributed as a commercial product called the Inktomi Traffic Server, before Inktomi was acquired by Yahoo!. Traffic Server has been actively used inside of Yahoo for over 4 years, serving billions of requests every day. As of fall 2009, Traffic Server is an Open Source project, and in April 2010 the Apache Traffic Server was promoted to a top-level project of the ASF.
DirectMemory is an off-heap cache implementation (a la BigMemory) to enable in-memory serialization of a large number of Java objects without affecting JVM garbage collection performance. Although serialization makes things slower, put/get operations are well in the sub-millisecond range, which is pretty acceptable in every usage scenario. DirectMemory implements cache eviction based on a simple LRU (Less Recently Used) algorithm and on item expiration.
SynCache::Cache stores cached objects in a Hash that is protected by an advanced two-level locking mechanism. Two-level locking ensures that: Multiple threads can add and fetch objects in parallel without stepping on each other’s toes; while one thread is working on a cache entry, other threads can access the rest of the cache with no waiting on the global lock, race conditions, or deadlock or livelock situations; and while one thread is performing a long and resource-intensive operation, other threads that request the same data with #fetch_or_add method will be put on hold, and as soon as the first thread completes the operation, the result will be returned to all threads. Without this feature, a steady stream of requests with less time between them than it takes to complete one request can easily bury a server under an avalanche of threads all wasting resources on the same expensive operation.
QuickFind is a cross-platform Java application for searching files in your computer. Its sole purpose is to save user time by searching the desired file almost instantly. It is designed to support all of the major computer platforms. The user can schedule caching or manually cache at any time on selected directories. Once the caching is done, all you have to do is input the name of the file you want to find.
