Galera wsrep provider is a dlopenable generic replication library which implements the wsrep provider API. It provides very efficient synchronous replication, and multi-master and "parallel applying" capabilities for opaque data buffers. Its primary focus is data consistency. A transaction is either committed on every node, or not at all. It works anywhere TCP works, including on WAN, and can utilize UDP multicast where available. It is used by the MySQL-wsrep patch project to create true multi-master MySQL/InnoDB clusters.
The pbs_python package is a wrapper class for the Torque Batch System C library. With this package, you now can write utilities and extensions in Python instead of C. This package was developed to replace xpbsmon by an ASCII version named pbsmon. PBSQuery is also included in this package. This is a Python module built on top of the pbs Python module to simplify querying the batch server. There are a lot of examples included in the source package.
SALI (Sara Automatic Linux Installer) is a tool that allows you to install Linux on multiple machines at once. It support several protocols for downloading by way of aria2 to install a machine. For example, BitTorrent and rsync are supported. SALI originates from SystemImager and still uses the same philosophy. It is a scalable method for performing unattended installation. SALI is mostly used in cluster setups.
pexconfig allows you to use a PXE-enabled network card as the first boot device for a system. This software suite also includes PXE-menu tools, which are used to control the booting of networked computers directly from the computer's console at the BIOS level before any operating system has been loaded. The menus provided by these tools can be used for diagnostic purposes, for firmware upgrades, or for selecting an operating system installation method.
ClusterShell is a set of tools and an event-based Python library to execute commands on local or remote cluster nodes in parallel. The framework also provides advanced methods for handling node sets and node groups to ease and improve administration of large compute clusters or server farms. Three convenient command line utilities, clush, clubak, and nodeset, allow traditional shell scripts to benefit some useful features offered by the library.
Open Grid Scheduler/Grid Engine is a batch-queuing system for distributed resource management. It is used by many high-performance clusters and computation farms. Together with basic batch job scheduling, it supports advance reservation, array jobs, parallel make, parallel job management, and GPU management.
Sequencer is an engine used by system administrators for the computation and execution of sequences of actions over hardware or software. It can ping various devices in parallel, power on your whole cluster, or generate an Emergency PowerOff (EPO) script for your data center or cluster. It takes into account various dependencies (power off nodes before switches, clients before server), deals with failures kindly, and is very efficient (>4000 nodes in less than 10 minutes).
