The Password Storage and Retrieval (PSR) system is a supplement to OpenPBS that allows PBS jobs to run with AFS authentication. It does this by strongly encrypting a user's password so the PBS server can retrieve and decrypt it when the user's job is run. The decrypted password is used to obtain an AFS token, allowing the job to run with AFS authentication. A "shepherd" process is forked into the background to renew the AFS token periodically to ensure that the token never expires while the job is still running.
SOAP.py is an implementation of SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) in Python. It includes a general SOAP Parser based on sax.xml ( requires Python 2.0 ), a general SOAP Builder, a SOAP Proxy for RPC client code, and SOAP Server framework for RPC server code. SOAP.py handles all of the types in the BDG, handles faults, allows namespace specification, and SOAPAction specification. It supports Homogeneous typed arrays, multiple schemas, the mustUnderstand and actor headers, XML attributes, Multi-referencing. SOAP.py also has good interoperability and passes all client tests for Frontier, SOAP::LITE, and SOAPRMI encodings.
Pods is a peer-to-peer resource sharing system which allows users to share any resource through the use of an XML-based protocol. The node natively supports disk storage and batch processing, allowing anybody to submit a task to be processed by the entire network. Basic command-line and GTK+ clients are included.
Clusters and server farms often have many nodes and very little hardware support for locating and diagnosing problems, especially if the problem involves the network interface. Helpme is a small stand-alone program that allows a node to use the standard PC speaker, both to signal that a problem has been detected and to render arbitrary alphanumeric text using either Morse code or the NATO phonetic alphabet. The input syntax allows repeating messages and more.
DJFractal is yet another fractal generator which distributes fractal data to multiple computers. Fractal data are created locally and distributed to other computers that run the appropriate fractal-generation software, which may be hosted on workstations, or on a Java enabled Web-browser through applets, or on a system with JavaCard. DJFractal's unique feature is the "smart" algorithm it uses to compute (and draw) the most interesting part of a fractal first.
openSSI webView is a simple and easy-to-use openSSI cluster monitoring system. Its goal is to provide a quick overview of the cluster state by graphing vital functions and graphically representing key figures. It allows the cluster administrator to keep an eye on the cluster health and usage rate, to quickly view each node state and load, and to watch, and even migrate, users' processes all across the cluster.
Vatata is an end-to-end and large-scale solution for publishing, delivering, and receiving streaming content. This platform is an open system completely based on the Internet. Its grid and P2P technology provide low-cost and clear delivery of content to millions of Internet users. Users can easily build their individual Internet radio stations or TV stations through Vatata. Vatata supports broadcasting of streaming content in a LAN.
Gemeinschaft is a PBX based on Asterisk, MySQL, Apache, and PHP, and designed for high availability and clustering. It provides automatic provisioning for mass deployment, and can handle over 10,000 users. Administration is done via shell scripts or a Web GUI. Hot-desking and mobility are supported. German voice prompts are included. There is a standards-compliant Web GUI with internationalization (and German and English translations). Outbound and inbound routing with full PCRE support is included.
