Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) is a framework and set of services for supporting system-level performance monitoring and performance management. It provides a unifying abstraction for all of the interesting performance data in a system, and allows client applications to easily retrieve and process any subset of that data using a single API. A client-server architecture allows multiple clients to monitor the same host, and a single client to monitor multiple hosts. Archive logging and replay are integrated so that a client application can use the same API to process real-time data from a host or historical data from an archive.
The objective of the NIST Web Metrics Testbed is to explore the feasibility of a range of tools and techniques that support rapid, remote, and automated testing and evaluation of website usability. There are currently six components: 1. Web Static Analyzer Tool (WebSAT): checks web page HTML against typical usability guidelines. 2. Web Category Analysis Tool (WebCAT): lets the usability engineer construct and conduct a web category analysis (card-sorting). 3. Web Variable Instrumenter Program (WebVIP): instruments a website to capture a log of user interaction. 4. Framework for Logging Usability Data (FLUD): a file format and parser for representation of user interaction logs (such as those captured by WebVIP). 5. VisVIP Tool: produces a 3D visualization of user navigation paths through a website, based on FLUD data. 6. TreeDec: adds navigation aids to the pages of a website.
PushToTest TestMaker is a distributed test automation platform for application performance management and monitoring. It repurposes tests written in Selenium, soapUI, TestGen4Web, and Mozmill, and unit tests in Java, .NET, Jython, Groovy, PHP, Ruby, and Perl into functional tests, load and performance tests, and business service monitors. TestMaker is ideal for Web applications, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) applications, Rich Internet Application (RIA using Ajax, Flex, Flash) and Business Process Management (BPM) applications.
Radiuslib is a complete RADIUS protocol and utility library for the Ruby programming language. It includes a very featureful, RFC- compliant protocol implementation, as well as parser classes for RADIUS dictionaries, Cistron-format "users" files, and standard "detail" accounting logs.
ADMLogger is a log analyzing engine. Using this core, users could easily build upon it with plugins. With very little Perl programming knowledge, it may become a powerful tool in a System Administrator's toolbox. ADMLogger creates email reports that can be formatted plain text or full HTML, which is up to the plugin designers to support. The main system has an HTML preference, so if your plugin ignores it, so be it. ADMLogger will also remove all filtered entries from the main syslog file into a second file so your other entries are more noticable.
hlg is a fast and easy to use tool for quickly auditing the performance of your Web applications. It reads Web logs and generates some interesting statistics, including details about average and peak concurreny (based on overlapping start times and durations), and the average and peak size and duration of requests over time. It is able to group regions based on the URL and produces text or comma-separated reports.
LinkGrammar-WN is a lexicon expansion for the Link Grammar Parser. The Link Grammar Parser is a syntactic parser of the English language that is capable of handling a wide variety of syntactic constructions and is considered quite robust. The LinkGrammar-WN project aims to import lexical information from WordNet in an effort to increase the size of the LGP lexicon. This project is of interest to anyone interested in NLP (natural language parsing) of English text.
