Jagger is a Java application monitoring tool that uses JMX technology to aggregate, archive, and visualize monitoring data for larger computer clusters, giving developers and administrators both a succinct and comprehensive view into their systems. Normal JMX consoles cannot do this due to information overflow.
MPIBZIP2 is a parallel implementation of the bzip2 block-sorting file compressor that uses MPI and achieves significant speedup on cluster machines. The output of this version is fully compatible with bzip2 1.0.2 or newer (i.e. anything compressed with MPIBZIP2 can be decompressed with bzip2).
Gridder is a suite of portlets designed to enable users to submit jobs in a grid environment. It comes with a full manual and includes documentation produced during development, which addresses topics related to grid and cluster setup and configuration. It seamlessly integrates with OGCE, as it was the focus during the whole development process. The portlets are designed to simplify job submission tasks with end-user friendliness in mind, and a well-defined separation of concerns from the user point of view (tasks and jobs) and from the technical point of view (the architecture and design).
Proto Balance is a load balancing and traffic management system that can handle up to 10,000 concurrent connections and 20,000 downloads per second. Proto Balance is a load balancer and TCP traffic port forwarder for high availability. It features an easy-to-use Web interface that requires minimal knowledge of networking and no command-line experience. Its target audience includes enterprise cluster providers, Internet service providers, and network administrators.
STL-MPI is an extension to MPI to support easy transfer of STL objects. It allows tight integration of MPI with objects from the C++ Standard Template Library, assisting the development of efficient parallel programs using message-passing in C++. STL-MPI provides a transparent and unified mechanism in C++ to transmit STL containers in an object-oriented and type-safe manner. It supports nested containers for data transport.
MrTools is a suite of tools for managing large, distributed environments. It can be used to execute scripts on multiple remote hosts without prior installation, copy of a file or directory to multiple hosts as efficiently as possible in a relatively secure way, and collect a copy of a file or directory from multiple hosts.
CTL is a cross-platform control dispatching tool that makes it easy to automate any kind of distributed systems management or application provisioning task. Rather than writing complex and error-prone scripts that over utilize "for loops", CTL handles the network dispatching for you and allows you to focus on the actual management tasks you need to accomplish. In addition to being a dispatching tool, CTL comes with pre-built cross-platform utilities so you don't have to script actions like file distribution or process and port checking. You can also write your own custom utilities and share them with others in your organization. Custom utilities are defined in XML, and your scripting can be done in multiple scripting languages (Perl, Python, etc.), *nix shell, Windows batch, and/or Ant.
g-Eclipse is a framework that allows users and developers to access computing grids and cloud computing resources in a unified way. The framework itself is independent from any particular grid middleware or cloud computing provider. The g-Eclipse project maintains a set of connectors to grid middlewares, such as gLite and GRIA, and provides an adapter to Amazon's EC2 and S3 Web services.
oneSIS is a software package aimed at simplifying diskless cluster management. It is a simple and highly flexible method for deploying and managing a system image for diskless systems sufficient for serving thousands of nodes. Functional roles of nodes and node properties are easy to define, and any single node or group of nodes can easily be configured to behave independently.
