Tsung is a distributed load testing tool. It is protocol-independent and can currently be used to stress HTTP, WebDAV, PostgreSQL, MySQL, LDAP, AMQP, and XMPP/Jabber servers. It simulates user behavior using an XML description file, reports many measurements in real time (statistics can be customized with transactions, and graphics generated using gnuplot). For HTTP, it supports 1.0 and 1.1, has a proxy mode to record sessions, supports GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE methods, cookies, and basic/digest authentication. It also has support for SSL, WebSocket, and BOSH.
ejabberd is a multi-platform, scalable, distributed, and fault-tolerant Jabber/XMPP server. It includes Jabber services like Multi-User Chat, IRC transport, HTTP-Bind, Publish-Subscribe and PEP. It supports virtual hosting, connection to transports (gateways) to other networks, and connection to other Jabber servers. Other supported features are Web and command-line administration, encryption support (SSL and TLS), several authentication methods (embedded, external script, LDAP, PAM, and ODBC), varied storage methods (embedded, ODBC, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MSSQL), Jabber user directory, and translations in more than 20 languages.
RabbitMQ is an implementation of AMQP, the emerging standard for high performance enterprise messaging. The RabbitMQ server is based on a proven platform, Erlang/OTP, offering exceptionally high reliability, availability, and scalability. It delivers good throughput and latency performance that is predictable and consistent. The code base is compact and easily maintainable, facilitating rapid customization and hot deployment. The RabbitMQ distribution also includes a Java client that interoperates with any compliant AMQP server.
Ebot is a scalable and distribuited Web crawler. The URLs are saved to a NOSQL database (which supports map/reduce queries) that you can query via RESTful HTTP requests or using your preferred programming languages. The URLs that need to be analyzed are sent to AMQP queues. In this way, it is possible to run several crawlers in parallel and stop and start them without losing URLs.
Yaws is a WWW technology with capabilities similar to the combination of Apache with PHP and a database. Yaws runs faster, with smaller footprint, higher scalability, and higher reliability. Subjectively speaking, it uses a more beautiful technique to generate dynamic pages than other similar technologies.
REPOS stands for Repository of Erlang-Projects.Org Software selection. It is a collection of major ready-to-use Erlang software. Erlang REPOS is distributed as a CDROM image (ISO). You can use every program included in the REPOS environment either directly from the CDROM, from your hard drive, or from a USB key.
The overall objective of the XtreemOS project is the design, implementation, evaluation, and distribution of a grid operating system (called XtreemOS) with native support for virtual organizations (VO). XtreemOS is capable of running on a wide range of underlying platforms, from clusters to mobiles. It is based on Mandriva Linux, with support to come for other distributions later.
