Linux Test Project is a joint project started by SGI, OSDL, and Bull developed and maintained by IBM, Cisco, Fujitsu, SUSE, Red Hat, Oracle, and others. The project goal is to deliver tests that validate the reliability, robustness, and stability of Linux. Currently it contains more than 1000 syscall test cases, I/O and AIO stress test cases, a few Linux kernel device drivers, a well maintained fork of the Open POSIX Testsuite, a real-time test suite, and more.
FLOM is a distributed lock manager that can be used to avoid shell tricks and safely execute different tasks that cannot run at the same time. It manages process serialization in the same way nice manages process prioritization. It implements the same lock mode semantic proposed by VMS DLM to allow non-trivial command serialization use cases. The goal is to "just work"; everything implemented must be useful and easy to use (configuration is reduced to a bare minimum). It works inside a single system or in a network of IP connected systems.
Dar is a shell command that makes backup of a directory tree and files. Its features include splitting archives over several files, DVD, CD, ZIP, or floppies, compression, full or differential backups, strong encryption, proper saving and restoration of hard links, extended attributes, file forks, Door inodes, and sparse files, remote backup using pipes and external commands (such as ssh), and rearrangement of the "slices" of an existing archive. It can run commands between slices, before and after saving some defined files or directories (for a proper database backup, for example), and quickly retrieve individual files from differential and full backups. Several external GUIs exist as alternatives to its CLI interface, like kdar, DarGUI, SaraB, etc.
