Libzdb is a database library with thread-safe connection pooling. The library can connect transparently to multiple database systems. It has zero runtime configuration and connections are specified via a URL scheme. A modern object-oriented API is provided. Libzdb supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and Oracle.
Monit is a utility for managing and monitoring processes, programs, files, directories, and devices on a Unix system. It conducts automatic maintenance and repair and can execute meaningful causal actions in error situations. It can be used to monitor files, directories, and devices for changes, such as timestamps changes, checksum changes, or size changes. It is controlled via an easy to configure control file based on a free-format, token-oriented syntax. It logs to syslog or to its own log file and notifies users about error conditions via customizable alert messages. It can perform various TCP/IP network checks, protocol checks, and can utilize SSL for such checks. It provides an HTTP(S) interface for access.
Arkeia Free Version is a no-cost version of Arkeia Network Backup specifically for small networks. It allows an administrator to backup and restore files via a Web UI. This edition has the option to backup up to two machines to a 250 GB disk storage or tape drive. It allows you to backup Linux machines, Windows desktops, Mac desktops, FreeBSD servers, and more.
Arkeia Network Backup is designed for organizations that require fast, easy-to-use, and affordable data protection. It backs up critical data to disk, tape, and cloud storage. Arkeia protects all major virtual platforms including VMware, Hyper-V, XenServer, and more than 200 physical platforms including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Netware, most UNIX flavors, and BSDs. The company’s source-side Progressive Deduplication technology helps users realize better performance at a lower cost by reducing data volumes. Arkeia’s deduplication is crucial to accelerating replication of on-premise backups to private or public clouds.
Dar is a shell command that makes backup of a directory tree and files. Its features include splitting archives over several files, DVD, CD, ZIP, or floppies, compression, full or differential backups, strong encryption, proper saving and restoration of hard links, extended attributes, file forks, Door inodes, and sparse files, remote backup using pipes and external commands (such as ssh), and rearrangement of the "slices" of an existing archive. It can run commands between slices, before and after saving some defined files or directories (for a proper database backup, for example), and quickly retrieve individual files from differential and full backups. Several external GUIs exist as alternatives to its CLI interface, like kdar, DarGUI, SaraB, etc.
The libstatgrab library provides an easy-to-use interface for accessing system statistics and information. Available statistics include CPU, Load, Memory, Swap, Disk I/O, and Network I/O. It was developed to work on Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris. The package also includes two tools: saidar provides a curses-based interface for viewing live system statistics, and statgrab is a sysctl-like interface to the statistics.
chrony is a client and server for the Network Time Protocol (NTP). This program keeps your computer's clock accurate. It was specially designed to support systems with intermittent Internet connections, but it also works well in permanently connected environments. It can also use hardware reference clocks, the system real-time clock, or manual input as time references.
LMDBG is a collection of small tools for collecting and analyzing the logs of malloc/realloc/memalign/free function calls. Unlike many others, LMDBG does not provide any way to detect overruns of the boundaries of malloc() memory allocations, as this is not the goal. Like most other malloc debuggers, LMDBG allows detecting memory leaks and double frees. However, unlike others, LMDBG generates full stacktraces and separates the logging process from analysis, thus allowing you to analyze an application on a per-module basis.
