syslog-ng is a syslogd replacement for a wide variety of UNIX systems that supports IPv6 and is capable of transferring log messages reliably using TCP and SSL and filtering the content of messages using regular expressions. Both RFC3164 and RFC5424 style messages are handled, but more esoteric formats like BSD process accounting logs are supported too. Apart from regular text files, it supports storing messages into SQL and MongoDB databases, and forward messages to local processes via pipes or UNIX domain sockets. This makes syslog-ng ideal as an integration platform. syslog-ng supports extracting structured information from the traditionally text based syslog via csv-parser(), db-parser(), and patterndb. Tag based classification, rewriting messages, and outputting messages in JSON is also possible. This makes syslog-ng ideal for preprocessing events for further analysis, be that home-grown scripts or SIEM systems. syslog-ng scales well on today's multi processor and multi-core systems: reaching 1,000,000 messages per second is a reality for the simplest use cases.
SysOrb is a client/server package that can monitor servers remotely (such as Web servers), or monitor devices on servers (such as disks, memory, load, etc.). It will alert the administrators via e-mail or pager if a server is entering a critical condition, and has its own database backend, allowing for massive collection of system statistics.
Dealing with the UNIX command line, especially in order to manipulate the file system, is one of the biggest hurdles to widespread use of Unix and Linux. System G was written to provide a simple way to access to the file system in the form of a graphical hierarchy of files and folders.
T.E.A.R. (pronounced Tair) is a console-based frontend for common MP3/OGG creation tools which automates all of the settings involved in ripping and encoding a CD. TEAR uses the CDDB database at freedb.org to name, organize, and add ID3 tags to each encoded file. It can use either cdparanoia or cdda2wav to rip .WAV files from the CD and it can use lame, bladeenc, gogo, or OggEnc to encode them. TEAR also supports SMP.
TA-Linux is a Linux distribution that targets power users. It features a small base installation that end users can expand to include any required software. It also attempts to support as many different architectures as possible - at this time x86 is fully supported, with Alpha, SPARC, PPC, and PA-RISC around the corner.
Taglog is designed for anyone who spends most of their day sitting at a computer, working on various projects. You can make notes about what you do, as you go along, associating them with the projects you work on. At the end of the week you can produce a report of how your time was spent, broken down by project for booking purposes. You can view previous entries, by date, or by project. You can enter the actions you intend to take, associate them with a project, and mark them as active, or complete.
