NewSyslog is an updated version of a package put together by Theodore Tso of MIT Project Athena (which is included in NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, etc.). It manages the rotation and archiving of log files (primarily those written to by syslogd). This version has a mix of features from all of the other versions, and it has been made more portable than any of the others with the help of GNU Autoconf.
Installwatch is a simple utility which keeps track of which files are created and modified during the installation of a new program. It's fast and easy to use. It doesn't require a "pre-install" phase because it monitors processes while they run. Installwatch works with every dynamically linked ELF program, by intercepting system calls that cause file system alterations.
httplog is a replacement for Apache's 'rotatelogs' and Andrew Ford's 'chronolog'. It allows you to specify a logfile using strftime paramaters in the filename to act as a template. This means that the logs in your logfiles will also be sorted according to the filename. For example, if you specify a logfile of /var/log/http%Y%m%d.log, a new log file would be generated each day, with content for only that one day. It also supports compression of logfiles using gzip, and many other useful functions.
changedfiles is a framework for filesystem replication, security monitoring, and/or automatic file transformations--essentially any application where you'd poll files or directories and either do something to them or send them somewhere else (or both). The difference is that the kernel tells you when they change instead of you having to poll. It's an easy real time FTP push mirror to one or multiple sites. It's also a full fledged MySQL client, so you can do realtime database operations (for example, batch imports). It consists of two parts: a kernel module (works with Linux kernel version 2.4) which reports to a device whenever a file on the filesystem changes, and a daemon which runs in user space and can be configured to do almost any action when a change to a file matching the one of the patterns it looks for is reported. The kernel module is SMP safe and has been tested on Intel, PowerPC, and Alpha.
NetUP UTM is a universal billing system for internet service providers of any size. Its modern approach to traffic accounting makes the system compatible with all popular platforms and network devices. Its key features include realtime traffic processing, Cisco Netflow and IP Accounting data collection, support for RADIUS authentication, and cross-platform compatibility. The core of the system is a smart and reliable accounting engine working directly with network equipment. It supports up to 100,000 users at a total speed of up to 3 Gbps. A flexible ratings engine and efficient administration tools make UTM a complete solution for IP/VoIP/WiFi/dial-up billing.
NEPM monitors and reports uptime, critical events and their predecessors, access rates, bytes-served rates, and error rates for network node equipment. Hardware and software elements within the nodes are tracked and reported separately to make possible rapid fault isolation. It is a very general, highly configurable, two-part software system that captures and analyzes logged performance data from IP-networked equipment and reports it via email and Web pages. Current conditions and history from systems based on Windows NT/2000, Unix, and Unix-style operating systems can be tracked and reported. Most major server, switch and router systems can be monitored, without running agents on the target systems. NEPM itself is system-independent and can be hosted on either a Unix or Win NT system or a combination of these with equal ease.
IPFS (IPSquad Package From Source) is a system which allows you to trace an program's installation from sources and register it in your favorite packaging system (only the Slackware package system and RPM are currently supported). IPFS watches a command (generally make install), collects the list of added files, and then registers them in the chosen packaging system as if the install was made from a normal package. Unlike other similar products, IPFS is able to track both shared and statically linked programs.
Wiresoft ANA (Automated Network Agent), an Artificial Intelligence-based systems management service, automatically performs over 90% of Linux systems management tasks. It is a self-managing, self-learning system support service that provides constant maintenance and protection for Firegate Servers. ANA services include Software Updating and Integration, Intrusion Detection, Data Back-up and Disaster Recovery, Monitoring, and Alerting.
apachelogrotate.pl rotates and packs the logfiles of the Apache Web server on a Linux system without interrupting its service and without the need for a permanent change in the Web server configuration. Assuming that Apache is running, it will identify the log files which have to be rotated without any configuration, making it easy to install. By default, logfiles with more than 10 MB are rotated, but this parameter may be changed and/or a daily, monthly, or yearly rotation period can be configured. Documentation is included in the script itself.
newsyslog is a faithful Perl rewrite of the MIT newsyslog utility, with a number of features taken from the FreeBSD and NetBSD variants of newsyslog. It archives log files based on size, date or interval, and can optionally compress archives with gzip or bzip2. Complete documentation is available via "perldoc newsyslog.pl".
