netcf is a library and command line tool for configuring networking on Linux machines in a platform-independent way, using the platforms native configuration mechanisms. Supported are all the various ways in which physical interfaces, bridges, bonds, and VLANs can be combined. The configuration of a network connection is described in an XML format that emphasizes the logical relationship between the interfaces involved, e.g. a bridge connection describes the bridge interface itself and all the interfaces initially enslaved to it. Interoperability with existing network configuration tools is guaranteed since netcf relies only on native network configuration files, both for reading and writing them. Modifying network configuration with netcf has exactly the same effect as modifying the native configuration files directly, and netcf and other tools can be used interchangeably.
The ldNetManager.py tool gives you the ability to manage your network devices without having to purchase a product like Cisco's LMS or go through the planning phase of deploying a product like func. Such tools only have the ability to manage devices in their realm. Func supports Linux devices, and Cisco LMS supports only Cisco devices. This tool has one goal: to update your devices without deploying any software to your remote devices. All you need is either telnet or SSH access to your devices, and Python2.4 or better with Pexpect installed.
NTPmon is a Web-based monitor for (usually LAN-based) NTP servers. It provides a small number of health metrics that help to locate NTP configuration or operational trouble spots. It uses RRDtool as its storage and graphing engine, and provides a CGI script for viewing the results.
Quota Check is a simple application which is designed to run when a user logs into a computer. If they have less than a certain amount of free disk quota, they are told to visit the system administrator and are logged out. When a user tries to log into a network home directory which has a quota enforced, and they don't have enough disk space, they risk corrupting their files. Quota Check makes this situation very clear to users who may be otherwise unaware of the problem.
RubyDNS is a high-performance DNS server that can be easily integrated into other projects or used as a stand-alone daemon (via RExec). By default, it uses rule-based pattern matching. Results can be hard-coded, computed, fetched from a remote DNS server, or fetched from a local cache, depending on requirements. In addition, RubyDNS includes a high-performance asynchronous DNS resolver built on top of EventMachine. This module can be used by itself in client applications without using the full RubyDNS server stack.
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.
