NTMF is a C++ framework for developing software that requires the manipulation of packets traversing a system. The main application areas are protocol testing, protocol implementation testing, network emulation, and network monitoring. It has support for link level packet capturing (using libpcap), link level packet injection, and network level packet injection for IPv4 packets (using lipnet). It supports multi-threaded execution, provides thread-safe packet queues, and provides a dynamic Finite State Machine representation.
StressItOut is a hardware stressing and testing program for GNU/Linux. Its main purpose is to strain the computer to ensure the hardware is in good state. There are several test modules: CPU load, memory test, 2D OpenGL painting, 3D OpenGL rendering, hard drives, optical drives, serial ports transmission, and parallel ports. Support for lm-sensors is in the works. This software, when ready for release, will mainly be aimed at the QA departments of hardware manufacturing companies, who need to ensure their newly produced machines perform correctly under heavy workloads, and that all their components work as expected.
