Bombardier is a software system that delivers visibility, control, and automation to data center environments. Bombardier provides a means for changes to be rolled out to a network of Linux and Windows servers in a highly controlled way, providing optimum security, logging, and centralized change control.
Aquarium is a Web-based GUI for Linux based systems. It currently covers/supports some of the most important Linux-based systems that are meant for server computing platforms, networking devices (including custom-built devices such as firewalls, IDS, IPS, WAN optimization, and Web caching), remotely rented hosting and other dedicated custom servers, systems/servers within an intranet, and systems/servers within cloud networks, CDN networks, or distributed SaaS Application Nodes. It supports Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera, and runs on Fedora Core. In the future, it should be supported on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, CentOS, Knoppix, and Debian. It provides abstraction for common Linux tools and other popular command line tools: ping, traceroute, ifconfig, netstat, who, arp, route, some important /proc system information and statistics, a custom file manager/explorer, iptables or Linux Firewall, Linux static routes, Linux brctl, cron scheduling, Linux users, and GRUB bootloader. It also supports MySQL. It should support exclusively all of the features of Traffic Squeezer.
GNU parallel is a shell tool for executing jobs in parallel locally or using remote computers. A job is typically a single command or a small script that has to be run for each of the lines in the input. The typical input is a list of files, a list of hosts, a list of users, a list of URLs, or a list of tables. If you use xargs today you will find GNU parallel very easy to use, as GNU parallel is written to have the same options as xargs. If you write loops in shell, you will find GNU parallel may be able to replace most of the loops and make them run faster by running several jobs in parallel. GNU parallel makes sure output from the commands is the same output as you would get had you run the commands sequentially. This makes it possible to use output from GNU parallel as input for other programs.
GroundWork Monitor Community Edition can give you insight into your computing infrastructure, allowing you to see the current and historical states of all your computers: servers, desktops, and laptops, all of your network devices, all of your services (like TCP/IP and Web services), and all of your applications (like mail servers and database apps). You can choose to be alerted when something goes awry via pager, SMS, email, or phone, and even set up automatic restarts or fall-overs.
Hatohol collects monitoring information from various monitoring systems and shows their integrated data on one screen. This enables the user to consolidate monitoring centers and operators even when monitored devices are being used in different places or with different monitoring software.
Kloxo is a lightweight and powerful Web hosting panel that has been in development since 2002. It was formerly known as LxAdmin. It allows for adding customers, resellers, and wholesale resellers with few clicks. Clustering functions are also built in, so you can expand and add servers whenever you need. Migrating customers between servers is easy and automatic, making it the most extensible panel to date. The services installed by default are Apache, BIND, MySQL, Pure-ftpd, Qmail, and Bogofilter. You can also switch between Apache and Lighttpd, BIND and djbdns, Bogofilter and Spamassassin. All configuration files are converted automatically in the process.
Patchman is a patch status monitoring tool for Linux systems. Patchman clients send a list of installed packages and enabled repositories to the server. The server (CLI or Web) tells the user which hosts require updates, whether those updates are normal or security updates, and shows installed packages that are not part of any repository. Hosts, packages, repositories. and operating systems can be filtered using features or arbitrary tags. For example, you can find out which hosts have a certain version of a package installed, and which repository it comes from. Patchman does not (yet) have the ability to update packages on hosts.
Qosmos NI_DUMP (“Network Intelligence Dump”) is Linux-based tool inspired by the popular tcpdump, enabling you to read, print, or save packet data related to traffic traveling over your network. Qosmos NI_DUMP is a light and versatile packet capture tool that recognizes 120 of the most commonly used protocols and applications, including SMTP, HTTP, MySQL, and NFs. This represents a small but useful sample of the full Qosmos Protocol Portfolio, comprising over 300 protocols and 4000 metadata. Unlike conventional packet dump tools, Qosmos NI_Dump can identify protocols using non-standard TCP or UDP ports, and incorporates an easy-to-use advanced filter expression language that enables users to zoom in on data of most interest to them, such as FTP transfers matching a particular filename or HTTP requests containing a particular keyword.
