This is the "progress" utility from NetBSD, ported to Linux and Solaris. The progress utility allows the file I/O of progresses to be monitored. It includes support for gzip-compressed files, so "progress -z -f file.tar.gz tar xf -" would show the progress of extracting file.tar.gz.
DSM (Dedicated Server Manager) Standard is a solution for hosting companies and organizations who need to combine a Web server, mail server, DNS server, or a fully featured Web hosting environment. DSM Standard offers four levels of interface access: root user, reseller, site-owner, and mailuser.
Zen Garden is a tool that watches over the installation and building of source archives. It is a fork of installwatch that has been heavily updated with modern features. It can prevent build tools from interfering with files outside the build directory and create a virtual chroot to perform installations in or backup the files the install overwrites.
SimMon is a cross platform monitoring tool which runs on almost any OS that supports the Java Virtual Machine 1.4+. Monitoring is done through the execution of existing monitoring scripts (Perl/VBS) or existing shell commands. Currently monitoring scripts are available for Solaris, Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows based systems. Network devices can be monitored via the integrated SNMPv1 scheduler.
Andutteye is a systems management platform that automates enterprise data centers and keeps them running. It contains different modules that targets different tasks of systems management.

Wiresoft ANA (Automated Network Agent), an Artificial Intelligence-based systems management service, automatically performs over 90% of Linux systems management tasks. It is a self-managing, self-learning system support service that provides constant maintenance and protection for Firegate Servers. ANA services include Software Updating and Integration, Intrusion Detection, Data Back-up and Disaster Recovery, Monitoring, and Alerting.
Clusters and server farms often have many nodes and very little hardware support for locating and diagnosing problems, especially if the problem involves the network interface. Helpme is a small stand-alone program that allows a node to use the standard PC speaker, both to signal that a problem has been detected and to render arbitrary alphanumeric text using either Morse code or the NATO phonetic alphabet. The input syntax allows repeating messages and more.
IPFS (IPSquad Package From Source) is a system which allows you to trace an program's installation from sources and register it in your favorite packaging system (only the Slackware package system and RPM are currently supported). IPFS watches a command (generally make install), collects the list of added files, and then registers them in the chosen packaging system as if the install was made from a normal package. Unlike other similar products, IPFS is able to track both shared and statically linked programs.
