ShoStats is a reimplementation of phpSysInfo in Perl, useful for running from crontab and outputting the stats to a PHP include file, which can then be displayed on a hosting account. It is modular and configurable, including modules to support both Linux, OpenBSD, and NetBSD, an output module for PHP include files, and transfer modules for output to stdout (which can be redirected or piped) and uploading to an FTP server.
xmbmon is a monitoring program for motherboards which can monitor the CPU temperatures and the frequency of CPU cooling fans, etc. The package includes "mbmon", which can be used at the commandline to report the temperatures, voltages, and RPM (rounds per minute) of the fans, and "xmbmon", which displays the three temperatures and a core voltage as simple curves.
The NetBSD Ppbus Project aims to remedy some of the shortcomings of the current printer driver by porting to NetBSD a more modern implementation of parallel port support in FreeBSD called ppbus. It allows faster modes of operation, IEEE 1284 support, and a generic abstract layer that multiple devices such as printer, PLIP (parallel port Internet protocol, similar to SLIP), and Zip drives. It allows bidirectional communication and an abstract parallel port interface that devices can attach to: the many chipset implementations of the parallel port will only have to provide this common interface.
IPMItool is a simple command-line interface to systems that support the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) specification. It provides the ability to read the SDR and print sensor values, display the contents of the SEL, print FRU information, read and set LAN configuration parameters, perform remote chassis power control, and act as a serial over LAN client. It can work with IPMI-over-LAN (both version 1.5 and 2.0) interfaces as well as the system interface provided by a kernel driver such as OpenIPMI.
TapeChanger::MTX is a module to manipulate a tape library using the 'mtx' tape library program. It is meant to work with a simple shell/Perl script to load and unload tapes as appropriate, and to provide an interface for more complicated programs to do the same. It comes with a few basic scripts to use much of the functionality of the module.
