Sentinella is a desktop application that monitors your system activity and, when a condition is met, takes the action that you've chosen. While monitoring your CPU, memory, hard drive, and network usage, Sentinella can be programmed to take specific actions when setpoints for utilization or time are met. It can power off, reboot, or hibernate your system, kill an active process, throw an alarm, or execute any command. Sentinella integrates perfectly with the main desktop enviroments (KDE, GNOME, XFCE, and others) and works under many Unix systems.
cpuid.c is a very simple C abstraction that provides an interface to common cpuid feature flags. It can be useful when implementing dynamic CPU feature dispatch that relies on optional processor feature extensions or basic processor-specific variables. This package is meant to be a very simple feature detection interface that you can easily integrate into your project. It is not meant to be complex and it is geared for projects implementing dynamic CPU feature dispatch.
libsysactivity is a lightweight library that retrieves statistics of the system's activity in a portable and thread safe way. In each OS that it supports, it offers the same API for retrieving the activity of Hard disks, CPUs memory, Processes, Network interfaces, Memory, and Swaps.
NETSHe is a feature-rich and general-purpose Web interface and initialization system for OpenWRT-based firmware. Its main features are network interface management (including point-to-point and wireless), VLANs and aliases, advanced routing (static, multipath, rule-based, RIP, OSPF, BGP), a zone-based firewall, bridges with brouter and filtering capability, interface bonding, quality of service, bandwidth management, traffic shaping, rate control, traffic prioritization, L7 based IP traffic filtering and marking, extended management of wireless interfaces, an access concentrator for variable VPNs (PPTP, L2TP, and OpenVPN), and much more.
Chaosmap is an information gathering tool and DNS, Whois, and Web server scanner. It can be used to look up DNS names with a dictionary with or without using a salt. Salting for DNS means it will append numbers from 1-9 to the name in the dictionary with or without a - and _ or a leading 0. Salting for Web stuff will try double slashes and some directory traversal tricks. It performs reverse DNS lookups of a whole IP range (with optional Whois lookup) and dictionary scans for hidden paths on one Web server or a range of IP addresses. Optionally you can encode a path with URL encoding use Google dict lookup mode to find the path on Google and only query the Webserver if there are no search results. It can also extract email addresses from domains using a Google search or perform a list of Google Hacking queries on your domain.
Gfarm is a distributed filesystem, generally used for large scale cluster computing. It's implemented in userland, and can be mounted by FUSE. It utilizes locality of a file to access a data node, and supports Globus GSI for Wide Area Network. Users can explicitly control file replica location on Gfarm. Gfarm can be used as an alternative storage system to HDFS for Hadoop, Samba, MPI-IO, and GridFTP. Monitoring via ZABBIX and Ganglia is also supported.
Guardian Grab eases the process of downloading the digital editions of The Guardian and The Observer newspapers, which are available through Newspaper Direct. Guardian Grab interacts with the Newspaper Direct site to log-on, identify available sections, and download the newspaper in the PDF, mobi (Kindle), or ePub formats.
