Aphid (the Apache/Perl HTTP Installation Daemon) provides a quick facility for compiling and installing the Apache Web server with support for SSL via mod_ssl, and with the embedded Perl interpreter provided by mod_perl. It downloads, compiles, and installs the software into the directory of your choice. Aphid places emphasis on providing an intuitive, browser-based interface and keeping a tiny distribution footprint. To date Aphid has been tested on Rehat Linux 6 and 6.2, FreeBSD 4.0, and Solaris 2.6 and 7.
bcnu is a Web-based system management tool which delivers information on the status of networked systems in a simple and easy-to-use manner. It uses a web browser to display information about hosts in a tabular form. Historical information can be held indefinitely, and there is a powerful query tool available to interrogate it. Client systems can run an agent which logs information back to a central system. An agent scheduler is integrated to allow agents to be run at different intervals. Standard agents include ftp, http, disk space, logfiles, processes, and more.
CGI::Application is a Perl framework intended to make it easier to create sophisticated, reusable Web-based applications. This module implements a methodology which can make Web software easier to design, easier to document, easier to write, and easier to evolve. CGI::Application builds on standard, non-proprietary technologies and techniques, such as the Common Gateway Interface and Lincoln D. Stein's excellent CGI.pm module. CGI::Application judiciously avoids employing technologies and techniques which would bind a developer to any one set of tools, operating system, or Web server.
ColdSync is a portable synchronization tool for Palm devices (PalmPilot, Handspring Visor, etc.) that runs under *BSD, Solaris, Digital Unix/Tru64, Linux, AIX, and Windows NT. It supports PalmOS 2.0 (original PalmPilot) and later. It is only known to support Visor syncing under FreeBSD and Linux, however. It supports IR syncing under Linux. ColdSync can back up, restore, install, and synchronize database, and can be extended and customized through the use of conduits. ColdSync is rather paranoid and takes pains not to delete anything it isn't 100% sure about.
Oww (One-Wire Weather) is a client program for Dallas Semiconductor / AAG 1-wire weather station kits, providing a graphical (animated) display to monitor outside temperature, wind speed and direction, rainfall, and humidity. Extra temperature sensors may be added. A 1-wire "hub" may be used for improved reliability and range. Weather data may be logged to CSV files, parsed to command line programs, sent to the Henriksen Windows client, or uploaded to Web servers at Dallas, The Weather Underground, and HAMweather.
Procwatch is security monitor written in Perl that watches a /proc filesystem for new processes. When a process is created, procwatch reports the time, the username, the PID, and the binary that was run. Its output is suitable for logging to log files and is geared for system administrators who are testing a new but as yet untrusted UNIX system. Although it cannot detect, and is not proof against, hacked loadable kernel modules that have modified /proc, it is useful in watching for possible rogue binaries.
pgAdmin III is an administration and management tool for the PostgreSQL database and derivative products such as EnterpriseDB, Mammoth PostgreSQL, Pervasive Postgres, and SRA PowerGres. It includes a graphical administration interface, an SQL query tool with grahical EXPLAIN, a procedural code editor, an SQL/shell/batch scheduling agent, Slony-I management, and much more. It is designed to answer the needs of most users, from writing simple SQL queries to developing complex databases. The graphical interface supports all PostgreSQL features and makes administration easy.
mass is a program that lets a system administrator execute programs on some set of machines as root. It uses SSH, scp, sudo or su, pings hosts before attempting to scp to them, retries failed hosts, works well with ssh-agent (but also handles SSH password or passphrases) and in general makes life easier whenever there's a need to do some operation on many machines. It works on most Unix-like OSes.
libphidgets is a user-space access library for the Phidget devices. It provides a generic and flexible way to access and interact with the Phidgets, and comes with all the advantages of a user-space library. It is based on libhid (which is based on libusb), thus it requires no HID support in the kernel. Furthermore, it aims to support all operating system supported by libusb/libhid: Linux, BSD, OS X, and Windows.
