The main function of the RT-Nagios gateway is to transform specific alerts from Nagios into a Help Desk ticket in Request Tracker to help your compliance efforts for incident responses (and other items) under ISO27001, SOX, and others. This provides better reporting, resource management, and more. Nagios configuration determines which incidents will generate tickets in RT. The URL of the ticket is inserted into the comment field of the corresponding Nagios service. The interface is bi-directional: when a user is "taking" charge of the ticket in RT, an acknowledgement for that service is sent to Nagios, stopping the alerts. Multiple alerts from a specific incident are "merged" within the original ticket.
Brutal squirrel is a converter to hex digits (plain text) and back. Using it, you can use your favorite text editor (such as vi or emacs) as a hex editor. You can compose any binary file or text file with non-keyboard symbols directly as hex digits. It reads from standard input and outputs to standard output.
Booleano is an interpreter of Boolean expressions; a library to define and run filters available as text (e.g. in a natural language) or in Python code. In order to handle text-based filters, Booleano ships with a fully-featured parser whose grammar is adaptive: Its properties can be overridden using simple configuration directives. On the other hand, the library exposes a Pythonic API for filters written in pure Python. These filters are particularly useful to build reusable conditions from objects provided by a third party library.
