The package also contains reaperbot clients, a simple graphics editor, and a level editor.
VeryNice is a tool for dynamically adjusting the nice level of processes under UNIX-like operating systems. It can also kill off runaway processes and increase the priority of multimedia applications, while properly handling both batch computation jobs and interactive applications with long periods of high CPU usage. Unlike most other process renice tools, VeryNice is not only capable of lowering a CPU-bound process's priority, but of raising the priority when the process is no longer heavily using the CPU.
PaulA intends to be a (lib)CIM-based administration system for Linux written in Perl. It provides a (very basic) CIM Object Manager (CIMOM), a sample CIM Client for testing purposes, and a repository to store "static" CIM entities. The CIMOM has the ability to communicate with Providers, which supply "dynamic" CIM entities. PaulA doesn't depend on a special distribution, because the Providers have the "knowledge" about the underlying Linux, and they can be exchanged.
Simple network top (sntop) is a curses-based console utility in the spirit of top that polls network hosts at a regular interval to determine their connectivity and displays the results in a pretty format. Advanced features are supported, such as automatic HTML generation of results, secure terminal mode, execution of an external file on connectivity changes, a daemon mode, and user/system configure files.
