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?").
sessiond allows a cluster of SSL/TLS servers to share their session caches in order to prevent each node of the cluster from negotiating a separate session. SSL/TLS session is basically a set of secret values (symmetric encryption keys, MAC secrets) shared between a client and a server. The use of asymmetric cryptography required to establish new sessions is the main performance bottleneck of the SSL/TLS protocol.
SwarmTv is a command line broad-catching program that downloads selected torrents/NZB's from an RSS or Twitter feed and puts them in a directory for your torrent program to download. The torrents to download are selected using filters that look at the name, size, and episode/season of the torrent. A mechanism is in place to prevent double downloads. Swarmtv can even send an email when a new episode is found.
Multi Threaded Daemon - enhanced is a class that implements a daemon that can spawn multiple parallel threads. It includes a sample app to monitor a "queue" directory on the filesystem, and spawns up to "N" child processes to parse individual files from it. It is an enhanced version of the original Multithreaded Daemon class written by Benoit Perroud. This version provides several robustness improvements, adds support for handling signals (SIGTERM, SIGHUP), and a unique PID file to avoid starting multiple instances.
