Janus is a platform designed to deal with the implementation and deployment of holonic and multi-agent systems. It is based on the CRIO organizational metamodel. The concepts of role and organization are supported as first-class entities. Janus provides a comprehensive set of features for developing, running, displaying, and monitoring multi-agent-based applications. The platform also natively manages the concept of recursive agents (holon or agents composed of agents). It can also run threaded and non-threaded agents without using the organizational and holonic API. It provides features equivalent to those of TinyMAS or MadKit.
DiskScan scans the entire surface of a disk, alerts when a sector is unreadable, and uses the read timing to warn when a sector is having problems. It will tell when a disk has failed and already has bad sectors and also when the disk is near failure and takes too long to read the data.
