zfec is a fast, portable, and programmable implementation of erasure coding. It includes a C library, a Python library, and a command-line tool. Erasure coding is also known as "forward error correction", which is the generation of redundant blocks of information such that if some blocks are lost then the original data can be recovered from the remaining blocks. The RAID-5 algorithm is an erasure code, but while RAID-5 can recover from the loss of any one element, zfec can be parameterized to choose in advance the number of elements whose loss it can tolerate.
This program is a TFTP server. It is intended to run as a user-initiated program, rather than a service daemon, and displays a GUI interface allowing the user to stop and start the TFTP server. It provides a simple TFTP server for engineers to download and upload configuration files from equipment such as routers and switches.
FDT is an application for efficient data transfers that is capable of reading and writing at disk speed over wide area networks (with standard TCP). It can be used to stream a large set of files across the network, so a large dataset composed of thousands of files can be sent or received at full speed, without the network transfer restarting between files. It is written in Java, runs an all major platforms, and is easy to use.
The MAD project is an implementation of the FLUTE (File Delivery over Unidirectional Transport) protocol for the unidirectional delivery of files over the Internet over a multicast network. FLUTE builds on Asyncronous Layered Coding, which itself is a combination of Layered Coding Transport (LCT), Forward Error Correction (FEC), and multiple rate congestion control elements. The project provides a number of libraries providing the networking and error-correction layers and a file transfer tool that is built on top of them.
The ipoque PRX traffic manager effectively detects and controls all major peer-to-peer (P2P) filesharing, instant messaging (IM), and Voice over IP (VoIP) protocols. Bandwidth and volume limits can be assigned to network links, subnets, individual users, and user groups. Detailed usage statistics are provided and can be exported for post-processing. This community edition is a fully functional version with a bandwidth limit of 2 Mbit/s.
