The Artificial Knowledge Interface for Reasoning Applications (AKIRA) project aims to create a C++ development framework to build cognitive architectures and complex artificial intelligent agents featuring KQML, fuzzy logic, neural networks, fuzzy cognitive maps, and DIPRA. DIPRA is a distributed version of the BDI (Belief Desire Intention) goal oriented model.
CANpie defines a Standard API for access to the CAN (Controller Area Network) bus. The API provides functionality for ISO/OSI Layer 2 (Data Link Layer). The CANpie driver is the base for HLPs like CANopen, DeviceNet, J1939, etc. Through its low memory footprint, CANpie can be used for embedded applications (without any OS) as well as for Linux. Access to the Linux CAN driver is via a socket interface (AF_CAN).
EtherApe is a GNOME/pcap-based etherman, interman, and "tcpman" clone. It displays network activity graphically. Active hosts are shown as circles of varying size, and traffic among them is shown as lines of varying width. It supports Ethernet, FDDI, Token Ring, ISDN, PPP, WLAN, and SLIP transports. It knows about VLANs, IP, IPv6, TCP, UDP, FTP, and a number of other protocols. Additional statistics windows will let you concentrate on protocols or nodes.
Internode Nodemap is a network visualization tool. Using SNMP, it gathers a periodic snapshot of the current state of the network. Then, under instructions from its config file, it plots a series of "maps" of the network over the top of GIF images in the Web server's document root, using color and HTML CSS to indicate potential performance or reliability problems. The maps are hierarchical "drill-down" views of the network. The top-level map is a summary which can be clicked on to reveal specific details; these more specific maps can also have additional maps nested within.
Kismet is an 802.11 layer 2 wireless network detector, sniffer, and intrusion detection system. It will work with any wireless card which supports raw monitoring (rfmon) mode, and can sniff 802.11b, 802.11a, 802.11g, and 802.11n traffic (device drivers permitting). It identifies networks by passively collecting packets and detecting standard named networks, detecting (and given time, decloaking) hidden networks, and inferring the presence of non-beaconing networks via data traffic.
MCS MyRoute helps diagnose connectivity problems with detailed network routing discovery and analysis, providing visibility to poor-performing networks and devices. It includes a Java applet that enables remote users to easily test connections from the MyRoute server. Essential diagnostic tools including traceroute, ping, reverse DNS, and whois are combined into a single graphical interface that analyzes Internet connections, reporting quick and essential data points for finding connectivity problems. An IP location database identifies the geographical location of IP addresses and Web servers, showing the path of an Internet connection on a global map.
MQ4CPP, or "Message Queuing for C++", is an implementation of an enterprise messaging system, also referred to as message-oriented middleware (MOM). It enables C++ application threads to communicate with other threads locally or remotely through the exchange of messages. A message is a request, report, and/or event that contains information needed to coordinate communication between different applications. MQ4CPP implements direct/indirect messaging, unsolicited messaging, request/reply, conversation, publish/subscribe, store & forward, and broadcast. It supports multithreading, application clustering (failover and session replication), and encryption. MQ4CPP also includes a distributed lock manager, a file transfer manager, and a distributed memory channel.
Modbus/TCP is an open automation protocol used in a variety of SCADA, PLC, and industrial IO applications. Modbusfw is a Linux 2.4.x Netfilter Extension that permits filtering decisions (DROP, REJECT, etc.) based on application-layer values, allowing finer-grained access control than is currently possibly by simply blocking TCP port 502.
