Libporty provides a higher level API for some commonly used library functions such as sockets, date/time, file system access, background processes, and asynchronous DNS resolving. Libporty is configured using scconfig and the API is guaranteed to work the same way on all supported systems. An application that exclusively uses the libporty API will not require autotools/scconfig for porting. Libporty has been tested on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, multiple BSD variants, Minix, OpenSolaris, and some ancient Unix systems.
se is a screen-oriented version of the classic UNIX text editor ed. The editor implements many of the commands of ed, but instead of being line-oriented, se is screen-oriented. The command syntax is very familiar to users who already know ed. If you get stuck, there is a built-in help system that describes many of the available commands. Many configurable options can be loaded from a .serc file. se can be run interactively or in a script via the included scriptse utility. The editor is portable across many platforms, supporting major Linux and BSD distributions as well as other systems like GNU, Minix, Haiku, OpenSolaris, and Cygwin.
Arkeia Free Version is a no-cost version of Arkeia Network Backup specifically for small networks. It allows an administrator to backup and restore files via a Web UI. This edition has the option to backup up to two machines to a 250 GB disk storage or tape drive. It allows you to backup Linux machines, Windows desktops, Mac desktops, FreeBSD servers, and more.
libsysactivity is a lightweight library that retrieves statistics of the system's activity in a portable and thread safe way. In each OS that it supports, it offers the same API for retrieving the activity of Hard disks, CPUs memory, Processes, Network interfaces, Memory, and Swaps.
bed is an adjustable data format binary editor. Data formats are ASCII, unsigned and signed integers, float, bit-flags, bit-fields, labels, EBCDIC, and time_t. Different sizes and byte orderings are possible. Data types can be used in structures. Other data formats, filters, and procedures can be defined in plugins. It features copy, paste, undo, redo, search, replace, marks, record/play, and context sensitive help. bed can be used to edit raw hard drives. Under Linux and FreeBSD it is even usable without the X Window System.
agentsmith is a daemon that continuously monitors a log file for break-in attempts by remote hosts. Upon detection of a break-in attempt, it launches a user defined script or application, which can do virtually anything from sending mail messages to whatever else you might think of. The criteria for what is considered a break-in attempt can be configured by means of a regular expression.
CACKey provides a standard interface (PKCS#11) for smartcards connected to a PC/SC compliant reader. It performs a similar function to "CoolKey", but only supports Government Smartcards. It supports all Government Smartcards that implement the Government Smartcard Interoperability Specification (GSC-IS) v2.1 or newer.
Bcfg2 helps system administrators produce a consistent, reproducible, and verifiable description of their environment, and offers visualization and reporting tools to aid in day-to-day administrative tasks. It is based on an operational model in which the specification can be used to validate and optionally change the state of clients, but in a feature unique to bcfg2 the client's response to the specification can also be used to assess the completeness of the specification. Using this feature, bcfg2 provides an objective measure of how good a job an administrator has done in specifying the configuration of client systems. Bcfg2 is therefore built to help administrators construct an accurate, comprehensive specification. Bcfg2 has been designed from the ground up to support gentle reconciliation between the specification and current client states. It is designed to gracefully cope with manual system modifications. Bcfg2 can also enable the construction of complex change management and deployment strategies.
downtimed is a program that monitors operating system downtime, uptime, shutdowns, and crashes and records such events. At OS startup it logs information about previous downtime. It then periodically updates a time stamp file on the disk, which is used to determine the approximate time when the system was last up and running. During a graceful system shutdown, it records a time stamp in another file. The downtimes(1) command line tool can be used to inspect records of past downtime.
