PostRemoteLog is a tool that allows you to send information across the network to a centralized location. Three methods are currently supported: XMLRPC, Email, and Growl. It is generally aimed at system administrators who want to keep track of information such as backup post-run scripts, network monitoring scripts, UPS information, service outages, power on/off, unexpected restarts, etc. PostRemoteLog is designed to be used in other scripts. Captured data can be analyzed and aggregated as needed.
Tweeter is another command line script that can update your Twitter status from the command line. It also uses the SSL link to protect your username and password. Tweeter can only post a new status; it cannot follow anyhone, send direct messages, or anything else. The username and password are not stored on the file system, so you can post to different accounts with ease. It should also work on older machines.
Lilith is a logging and access event viewer for the Logback logging framework. It has features comparable to Chainsaw, a logging event viewer for log4j. This means that it can receive logging events from remote applications using Logback as their logging backend. It uses files to buffer the received events locally, so it is possible to keep vast amounts of logging events at your fingertip while still being able to check only the ones you are really interested in by using filtering conditions.
Nagios is a host, service, and network monitoring system that will watch your network and alert you to problems before your clients or end-users do. The system runs checks on hosts and services that you specify using plugins that return status information to Nagios. When problems are encountered, the system will send notifications to system administrators so that they can take action on the problem. The JumpBox for Nagios gives you a head start to using the system. It eliminates the complexity involved in getting the application installed, and allows you to focus on the configuration for your specific environment. Since Nagios is based on plugins, depending on what you want to do this will vary in complexity.
The Google Serial Graphics Adapter BIOS, or SGABIOS, provides a means for legacy x86 software to communicate with an attached serial console as if a video card were attached. It is designed to be inserted into a BIOS as an option ROM to provide over a serial port the display and input capabilities normally handled by a VGA adapter and a keyboard, and additionally provide hooks for logging displayed characters for later collection after an operating system boots. It is designed to handle all text mode output sent to the legacy video BIOS int 10h service routine. Int 10h is the most common method for displaying characters in 16-bit legacy x86 code.
user_info is a class to retrieve information about the browser the user is using to access the current site script. It can analyze the user agent string sent by the browser in the current HTTP request and extracts the type of browser, user machine operating system, user machine IP address, accepted character set encoding, language name, and whether the user is a spider/bot.
SysLog Summary summarizes the contents of a log file written by syslog. It displays each unique (except for the time) line once, and also shows the number of times such a line occurs in the input. The lines are displayed in the order they occur in the input. It is also possible to define some rules to ignore certain lines by using regular expressions.
MoMELog very simple and extensible J2ME logging framework intended to be used at development time, consisting of a small core and extensions. It provides extensions intended to format logging based on conversion pattern, display logging information on a device's or emulator's screen, and collect it in a destination file. It adjusts to restrictions of the J2ME architecture, gives possibilities for declarative and programmatical configuration, and is CLDC 1.1 compliant.
