Network and Service Monitoring System is a tool for assisting network administrators in managing and monitoring the activities of their network. It helps in getting the status information of critical processes running at any machine in the network. It can be used to monitor the bandwidth usage of individual machines in the network. It also performs checks for IP-based network services like POP3, SMTP, NNTP, FTP, etc., and can give you the status of the DNS server. The system uses MySQL for storing the information, and the output is displayed via a Web interface.
Gemu is a Gnome application designed to configure sound cards based on the EMU10K1 platform from Creative Labs. Gemu is capable of adding, viewing and deleting audio routes, turning on Live Drive IR, turning on the 12db boost to the front/headphone jacks on Live cards, setting the S/PDIF frequency on Audigy cards, setting the recording source, turning on digital passthrough mode, setting to the analog or digital mode of the dual-mode jack of 5.1 cards, adding and seeing patches for sources and destinations, and controlling volume on a per-route basis or by source or destination.
cvs-nserver is the almost complete rewrite of network-related CVS code featuring security-critical code in separate executables, a clean authentication layer allowing virtual repositories running under a single system account with an unlimited number of virtual users, simple authentication modules which can authenticate against /etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, and PAM, and complete compatibility with existing clients.
beware is a small DNS server that can have nameserver responsibility delegated to it and that can return a set of authoritative "IN A" records to a client. Given a list of hosts for a certain domain name, it also tests for services specified and will only return IP addresses for currently reachable services.
The purpose of zdisk is to have a kernel of your choice and a rescue system on one floppy or cdrom disk. Zdisk copies a kernel of your choice to a floppy and puts a rescue system on the same floppy, creating a boot/rescue floppy. The kernel can't be more than 1070Kb in size. Ramf-117.exe at the same site has a similar rescue system, except it comes with a IDE kernel.
Linux, in the tradition of UNIX-like operating systems, implements file system permissions using a rather coarse scheme. While this is sufficient for a surprisingly large set of applications, it is too inflexible for many other scenarios. For that reason, all the major commercial UNIX operating systems have extended this simple scheme in one way or the other. This is an effort to implement POSIX-like Access Control Lists for Linux. Access Control Lists are built on top of Extended Attributes, which can also be used to associate other pieces of information with files such as Filesystem Capabilities, or user data like mime type and search keywords.
Lin-setibuf is a set of Perl modules for manipulating both the SETI@Home client files, and the SETI@Home text client. SETI::Monitor offers an intuitive interface to stats retrieval, and manipulation via a Perl program. SETI::Client gives the Perl programmer a high-level layer for control of the SETI@Home client.
