Whiskers is an educational PocketPC application that tries to exploit all the hardware available on most common PDAs providing a link between different features such as GPS-Bluetooth-Wireless. Generally, whiskers was built with radio reconnaissance in mind as help for geocachers or wardrivers, but also as a penetration and audit tool. There is support for in-depth device scanning, triggering actions based on filters when certain devices are in range, centralized GPS logging with search functions for private or public databases, and much more.
YASIS is a very detailed sysinfo script that displays individual stats or grouped info. It only requires lspci and common tools found in any distribution. Check the page for example outputs. It displays distribution/kernel, CPU count/cache/load, disk/swap/RAM used/free, network info/speed, CPU temp/fan speeds, X environment info (wm/de and display info), bandwidth speeds, and more.
check_multi is kind of a Nagios wrapper plugin which takes advantage of the Nagios 3.x capability to display multiple lines of plugin output. It calls multiple child plugins and displays their output in the long_plugin_output. A summary is given in the standard plugin output. The child return code with the highest severity becomes the parent (check_multi) plugin return code. The configuration is very simple: a NRPE-stylish config file contains a tag for each child plugin and then the check command line.
Fritz!WRT is a set of patches to make the OpenWRT trunk run on AVMs Fritz!Box. Much progress has been made in recent OpenWRT revisions in the AR7 port, but it's still not running on the Fritz!Box. The patches also have the potential to make the T-Com SpeedPort run, because its hardware is very similar to that of the Fritz!Box. There are patches for the bootloader, LED support, and watchdog support, as well as KGDB support.
check_hpasm is a plugin for Nagios which checks the hardware health of Hewlett-Packard Proliant servers. To accomplish this, you must have installed the hpasm package. The plugin checks the health of processors, power supplies, memory modules, fans, CPU- and board-temperatures, and alerts you if one of these components is faulty or operates outside its normal parameters.
Alerttail monitors a given file and executes a list of actions when a user-defined text pattern has been written to the file. For example, the user can pop up a GTK notification window when a certain message is written to a log file. Actions can be alerttail built in actions (GTK notify action, geoipLocalization action, or filtering text action) or a custom user defined shell command action. A Qt 4 GUI frontend helps with configuration.
