Jmx4Perl provides an alternate way of accessing Java JEE Server management interfaces that are based on JMX (Java Management Extensions). It is an agent-based approach where a small Web application deployed on the application server provides HTTP/JSON-based access to JMX MBeans registered within the application server. It is set up from a handful of Perl modules, which can be integrated seamlessly in your own programs. It also includes a Nagios plugin, check_jmx4perl, a jmx4perl command line tool for remote JMX queries and operations, and a readline-based JMX shell j4psh, with context sensitive command completion and syntax highlighting.
Knocker is a simple, versatile, and easy-to-use TCP security port scanner written in C, using threads. It is able to analyze hosts and the network services which are running on them. Knocker it is available for Linux, FreeBSD, many Unix platforms, and Windows 95/98/2000. Both a console version and a GTK+ version are available.
libmsntp is a full-featured, compact, portable SNTP library. libmsntp provides SNTP client and server functionality in a shared library with a simple API. SNTP (RFC 2030) is a simplified version of NTP, which allows precise synchronization of system clocks over a best-effort network.
The libstatgrab library provides an easy-to-use interface for accessing system statistics and information. Available statistics include CPU, Load, Memory, Swap, Disk I/O, and Network I/O. It was developed to work on Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris. The package also includes two tools: saidar provides a curses-based interface for viewing live system statistics, and statgrab is a sysctl-like interface to the statistics.
makeself is a small shell script that generates a self-extractable compressed TAR archive from a directory. The resulting file appears as a shell script, and can be launched as is. The archive will then uncompress itself to a temporary directory and an arbitrary command will be executed (for example, an installation script). This is pretty similar to archives generated with WinZip Self-Extractor in the Windows world.
myFriends is a small program for all of you who have an Apache WEB server and mySQL database running. It is an address list using a WEB interface. It maintains similar things to most address book tools, as well as family relationships. It will also store any number of dates, binary flags or plain text notes to each name. This version targets anyone who wishes to use a simple system and provides a starting point for learning these technologies.
This release is based on the Unix port of beta release 2 of BYTE Magazine's BYTEmark benchmark program (previously known as BYTE's Native Mode Benchmarks). The port to Linux/Unix was done by Uwe F. Mayer. Additional changes to the code were made to make the code work with egcs compiler and to make the software packagable. This is a CPU benchmark providing indexes for integer, floating, and memory performance. It is single-threaded and is not designed to measure the performance gain on multi-processor machines.
