RANCID (Really Awesome New Cisco confIg Differ) collects a router's (or device's) configuration, including software and hardware (cards, serial numbers, etc.), and uses CVS to display differences from a previous collection. It supports Cisco routers, Juniper routers, Catalyst switches, Foundry switches, Redback NASs, and ADC EZT3 muxes. The Beta version currently includes support for Bay Networks (nortel) routers and Extreme switches. Rancid also includes a lookingglass and the device login scripts may be used to automate a number of tasks.
SPM (formerly known as SPAM) is a set of tools that help manage change in an AIX environment. It uses a client-server architecture and is focused on five functional areas: collection of configuration, reporting configuration changes, comparing configurations, extracting configuration, and searching for configuration changes. Each of these functional areas also includes reporting and export capabilities. The collection of configuration is achieved by installing a client package on all systems being managed. The SPM Server provides a Web interface for reporting and examining configuration changes.
PureCM is an integrated project management, task tracking and version control tool. Based on the concept of changesets that represent tasks, it provides developers with an easy to use and highly transparent GUI to improve teamwork. The Professional edition includes all features, but the Standard edition only includes the version control core, offering a lightweight solution for users looking for a best-of-breed configuration management tool. PureCM outperforms most other SCM tools, uses a reliable SQLite database, and is scalable to thousands of concurrent developers. The server, GUI, command line, and Web clients runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OS, and Windows.
Jat (Java Application Template) is a Java framework that is easy to extend. It supplies modular and flexible basic functionalities to develop Web and standalone applications. It can improve application start-up time. Jat Portal is an enhanced version of Jat. It provides several pre-configured features to build a complete Web application.
Netomata Config Generator (NCG) creates complete, ready-to-install configuration files for network devices and services from a common lightweight model of a network. Because these configuration files are generated programmatically and generated from a shared model, they are more likely to be consistent and complete, making a network more reliable, easier to troubleshoot, and easier to expand in both size and functionality. The inputs to NCG are a model describing the network and templates for the configuration files of the various devices (routers, switches, load balancers, firewalls, etc.) and services (SNMP, DNS, DHCP, etc.). From these inputs, NCG produces complete, consistent, ready-to-install configuration files for those devices and services.
Symbolic is an enterprise platform designed to build, configure, and manage your huge and globally distributed data centers. It features cloud computing, Web manager virtual environments (Xen, KVM, and libvirt), clustering support, custom operations and scripts support, and user and role definitions.
Lucie is a cluster installation and configuration tool. It enables parallel network installation of large numbers of nodes from one single administration server. The Lucie installer performs HDD partitioning and installations of the Linux kernel and required software packages. The Lucie configurator then generates system and software configurations. Lucie is designed to be scalable and efficient, so a complete Linux cluster can be built from scratch in a short amount of time. Moreover, the whole installation process is designed to be fully automated.
netcf is a library and command line tool for configuring networking on Linux machines in a platform-independent way, using the platforms native configuration mechanisms. Supported are all the various ways in which physical interfaces, bridges, bonds, and VLANs can be combined. The configuration of a network connection is described in an XML format that emphasizes the logical relationship between the interfaces involved, e.g. a bridge connection describes the bridge interface itself and all the interfaces initially enslaved to it. Interoperability with existing network configuration tools is guaranteed since netcf relies only on native network configuration files, both for reading and writing them. Modifying network configuration with netcf has exactly the same effect as modifying the native configuration files directly, and netcf and other tools can be used interchangeably.
