BMDFM allows one to run an application in parallel on shared memory multiprocessor (SMP) systems. BMDFM automatically identifies and executes all parallelism of unparallelized programs due to the static and mainly dynamic scheduling of the data flow instruction sequences derived from the formerly sequential program. BMDFM's dynamic scheduling subsystem performs an efficient SMP emulation of Tagged-Token DFM to provide the transparent dataflow semantics for the applications. No directives for parallel execution are required. No highly knowledgeable parallel programmers are required.
BX/XIK automates the integration of Sitraka's (formerly KL Group) Motif based XRT widgets into Builder Xcessory PRO. After installing the XRT Integration Kit, the XRT widgets will appear on the BX PRO palette and can be "dragged-and-dropped" to create a sophisticated Motif-based user interface.
The BRU Backup and Restore Utility features data-verified backups, scalability, configurability, and ease of use for Linux and Unix. Versions are available for Linux, FreeBSD, and most UNIX variants. It works via an X11 interface, command line interactive, or through a scripted, scheduled (CRON) mechanism.
Barcode Studio is designed to quickly create high-quality barcode images. It is commonly used for pre-press requirements, postal bar-coding, desktop publishing applications, mobile tagging, print shops, and general barcode purposes. It supports all linear barcodes (like Code39, 2of5, EAN, UPC, Code39, Code128, and EAN/UCC128), 2D barcodes (like PDF417, QR-Code, Aztec Code, DataMatrix ECC200, and MaxiCode), GS1 DataBar, and HIBC codes. Barcode data can be entered manually or imported from external data sources. Serial numbers are created automatically on demand. It has a built-in quality preview. Single as well as batch barcode creation is supported via the command line or the graphical user interface. Barcodes can be printed directly, copied to the clipboard, generated as image files (BMP, GIF, JPG, TIFF, or PNG) or exported as vector graphics (EPS, EMF, WMF , PDF, or PostScript). The created barcodes are useable immediately: Just insert the barcode graphics into your artwork, database, form, or any document.
Bastille Unix (formerly Bastille Linux) aims to be the most comprehensive, flexible, and educational Security Hardening Program for Red Hat (Fedora Core, Enterprise Linux, and original Red Hat), SuSE, Gentoo, Mandrake, and Debian Linux, as well as HP-UX and Mac OS X. Virtually every task it performs is optional, providing immense flexibility. It educates the installing admin regarding the topic at hand before asking any question. The interactive nature allows the program to be more thorough when securing, while the educational component produces an admin who is less likely to compromise the increased security.
Beeweeb Internet File Server Workgroup for Windows is a secure and fast alternative to complex and expensive VPN solutions. It enables users connecting from the Internet to access, backup, and share files stored on any file server, just as you would do within a LAN. The BWB protocol includes SSL encryption and allows direct access to files, avoiding time-consuming downloading and uploading procedures. It is easy to install and configure. Users log on to the server by means of the Beeweeb's thin free client (Beeweeb Mapper) with just an address (i.e. username@servername) and a password. It is scalable to serve up to thousands of users, and it is a perfect solution for ISPs and hosting providers who wish to offer innovative online storage, backup, and file-sharing services.
Berkeley DB (libdb) is a programmatic toolkit that provides embedded database support for both traditional and client/server applications. It includes b+tree, queue, extended linear hashing, fixed, and variable-length record access methods, transactions, locking, logging, shared memory caching, database recovery, and replication for highly available systems. DB supports C, C++, C#, Java, PHP, and Perl APIs. It supports key-value pair (NoSQL), SQL, and Java Object formatted data. It is available for a wide variety of Unix platforms as well as QNX, Android, Mac OS X, and several varieties of Windows.
Big Brother is a combination of monitoring methods. Unlike SNMP where information is just collected and devices polled, Big Brother is designed in such a way that each local system broadcasts its own information to a central location. Simultaneously, Big Brother also polls all networked systems from a central location. This creates a highly efficient and redundant method for proactive network monitoring.
The Bioinformatics Benchmark System is an attempt to build a reasonable testing framework, tests, and data, to enable end users and vendors to probe the performance of their systems. It is not trying to be the last word in informatics benchmarking, as there are simply too many codes, tests, data sets, and databases. The goal is to create a core of tests that all may download and use to probe specific elements of system performance. The end goal is to enable a pluggable set of tests, including the core tests, so that performance data may be gathered.
