OpenNetAdmin provides a database managed inventory of your IP network (IPAM). Each host can be tracked via a centralized AJAX-enabled Web interface that can help reduce tracking errors. It also has the ability to generate DHCP and DNS configuration for individual servers from the data stored in the database. There is a command line interface for batch scripting that can be accessed remotely or locally.
SendIP is a command-line tool to send arbitrary IP packets. It has a large number of options to specify the content of every header of a RIP, RIPng, BGP, TCP, UDP, ICMP, or raw IPv4/IPv6 packet. It also allows any data to be added to the packet. Checksums can be calculated automatically, but if you wish to send out wrong checksums, that is supported too.
Hawk is a DNS housekeeping utility that compares what's in DNS to what's really on your network, allowing you to (re)assign IPs with confidence. It monitors the hosts on your network via ping. It can identify unauthorized address usage, or show you which addresses in DNS haven't been used in a while and can be reclaimed.
dnscacheaudit is a simple Perl utility to audit entries in the BIND cache. At the end of each run, it creates a PDF report showing the number of domains in the BIND cache that have a different IP address in the cache than the reference servers. This utility is inspired by the CacheAudit utility by Jose Avila.
Bind DLZ on Rails is a Web-based user interface for managing BIND with the bind-dlz extensions on a MySQL 5.0 backend. BIND is a DNS server, and the bind-dlz extensions enhance BIND with support for database backeneds. This simplifies the management of thousands of zones and provides added redundancy (by way of database replication).
