memtester is a user-space utility for testing the memory subsystem in a computer to determine if it is faulty. It does a good job of finding intermittent faults and non-deterministic faults. It has many tests to help catch borderline memory. memtester should compile and run on any 32- or 64-bit Unix or Unix-like system.
cpuburn is is a set of programs that load x86 CPUs as heavily as possible for the purposes of system testing. FPU and ALU instructions are coded in an endless loop in an attempt to maximize heat production from the CPU, putting stress on the CPU itself, the cooling system, the motherboard (especially voltage regulators), and power supply. The tests may damage undercooled, overclocked, or otherwise weak systems and cause data loss or permanent damage to electronic components.
SysAid is a dynamic and highly intuitive software solution for small to medium-sized organizations. It provides extensive helpdesk, asset management, monitoring, reports and analysis, knowledgebase, live chat, and IT benchmarking applications in a simple, attractive, and easy-to-use package. The software comes with standardized templates to help you get started right away and fully customizable options to meet your day-to-day IT needs. SysAid manages system vitals by automatically scanning, listing, and monitoring your organization's network (SNMP devices, hardware, software, and change history) and raising early warning alerts (email, SMS).
amforth is an extendible command interpreter for the Atmel AVR ATmega microcontroller family. It has a turnkey feature for embedded use as well. It does not depend on a host application. The command language is an almost compatible ANS94 forth with extensions. It needs less than 8KB code memory for the base system. It is written in assembly language and forth itself.
cdck is a simple program for verifying CD/DVD quality. Even if all files on the disc are readable, some sectors having bad timing and could become unreadable in the future. The tool reads a disc sector by sector, recording all reading timings, and then tells you its verdict. It can optionally write a timing table into a text file usable by gnuplot, from which graphs can be drawn.
OpenCT implements driver and middlerware for smart card readers. OpenCT drivers can be used via the ct-api interface, the ifdhandler interface, or its own interface/middleware. It implements drivers for several USB crypto tokens, USB smart card readers, serial smart card readers, and PCMCIA smart card readers.
