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.
Lilac is a configuration tool for Nagios 3. Its features include enhanced Nagios 3 time period support, multiple template inheritance, host templates able to contain services, dependencies, and escalations, an importer which can import existing Nagios configurations and import from a Fruity installation, an Exporter with Nagios process control, the ability backup existing configuration files, and an auto-discovery tool to quickly add your infrastructure into your Nagios installation.
ICS is an inter-process configuration sharing system. It allows one process to act as the master and manage the configuration backing storage, while other processes transparently connect to the master using an ICS::Controller::Slave class, which has the same API as the ICS::Controller::Master class and allows them to use the configuration and subscribe to changes as if the process were hosting the master controller. It is useful for projects that use multiple processes but don't want to use a desktop-wide configuration system like GConf. A demonstration is included.
By using the nmblookup facility from Samba, and configuring hosts to use the WINS service, IP-ID lets you resolve named hosts within your local network. As an added feature, IP-ID can discover and add a hostname for an Xbox running XBMC, allowing simple and repeatable FTP transactions with the Xbox. By drawing on the functionality provided by the MiniUPnP project program, IP-ID can also configure UPnP port forwarding to machines to allow SSH access from the wider world.
Crash Dummy is a Java Web application to help IT professionals set up Java application server environments. It has several features to help make this easier, including simulating failures and diagnostics. Crash Dummy is particularly helpful for setting up complex clustered environments and monitoring infrastructure.
Chef is a systems integration framework, built to bring the benefits of configuration management to your entire infrastructure. With Chef, you can manage your servers by writing code, not by running commands (via Cookbooks), integrate tightly with your applications, databases, LDAP directories, and more (via Libraries), and easily configure applications that require knowledge about your entire infrastructure ("What systems are running my application?" "What is the current master database server?").
tadedon is a set of utilities that form a foundation for applications written with one of the many Java frameworks, such as GWT, GIN, Guice, Google App Engine, commons-configuration, and many others. It lets you specify the default configuration of your application and upgrade it automatically on each new release. It can redirect all java.util.logging to slf4j and easily configure logback. It can bind application configuration in a Guice module. It supports @PostConstruct and @PreDestroy annotations (JSR 250) in Guice applications. It lets you annotate your methods with @Transactional annotation. It supports Guice injector stage in your Web application. It lets you test your Guice managed servlets and filters without needing a real servlet container. It lets you use Guice Matchers for matching super class, interface, and type literal annotations. It can inject event bus to your GWT applications with the help of GIN.
