Appctl is a framework for virtually any server software. It provides a central script called "ctl" which allows you to start, stop, restart, maintain, or query the current status of an application. It is meant as a completely generic replacement for application-specific startup/stop scripts. The project also supplies generic monitoring scripts for clusters, which can dramatically decrease clustering costs.
Platform Independent Petri Net Editor (PIPE) creates and analyses Petri Nets quickly, efficiently, and effectively. A key design feature is the modular approach adopted for analysis, enabling new modules to be written easily and powerfully, using built-in data layer methods for standard calculations. Six analysis modules are provided, including Invariant Analysis, State-Space Analysis (deadlock, etc.), and Simulation Analysis and Classification. PIPE adheres to the XML Petri net standard (PNML). The file format for saving and loading Petri Nets is extensible through the use of XSLT, the default being PNML.
The Interreality project is a collection of Open Source, Free Software projects based on the Virtual Object System (VOS) platform. The goal is to develop a free and open platform for multi-user 3D virtual reality games, applications, and interactive, collaborative 3D virtual spaces. VOS is a powerful and generic network object framework designed to support a variety of high-performance applications. It is the basis for Ter'Angreal, a general-purpose browser application for entering and participating in 3D worlds.
PyDSH is a toolset to help simplify the administration of remote systems. The pydsh command enables running of a command on multiple hosts in parallel over RSH, SSH, or telnet, and manages your SSH public and private keys. The pydcp command enables SCP-like functions to and from multiple hosts in parallel.
PVM (Parallel Virtual Machine) is a portable message-passing programming system, designed to link separate host machines to form a ``virtual machine'' which is a single, manageable computing resource. The virtual machine can be composed of hosts of varying types, in physically remote locations. PVM applications can be composed of any number of separate processes, or components, written in a mixture of C, C++ and Fortran. The system is portable to a wide variety of architectures, including workstations, multiprocessors, supercomputers and PCs.
MantaRay is a distributed, peer-to-peer, server-less communication and messaging solution for Java (JMS), C++, and .NET applications. It integrates with JBoss, WebLogic, and WebSphere and offers guaranteed delivery, security, and transactions. It supports the TCP, SSL, and HTTP protocols.
qmail-ldap is an extension to stock qmail-1.03 to get all user account information from an LDAP database. Its primary target is POP toasters with thousands to millions of users, such as in ISP, FreeMail, and Corporate environments. It features full SMTP/POP3/IMAP server clustering for scaling and high availablity. Additionally there are state-of-the art spam filters, TLS SMTP encrytion, and mailbox quotas. A migration path for Netscape Messenger and Software.com's Post.Office installations is provided.
Unison is a file-synchronization tool for Unix and Windows. It allows two copies of a collection of files and directories to be stored on different hosts (or different disks on the same host), modified separately, and then brought up to date by propagating the changes in each replica to the other. Unison can deal with updates to both replicas of a distributed directory structure. Updates that do not conflict are propagated automatically. Conflicting updates are detected and displayed. Unison can communicate through a direct socket link or through an rsh/ssh tunnel. It uses network bandwidth efficiently.
