Libporty provides a higher level API for some commonly used library functions such as sockets, date/time, file system access, background processes, and asynchronous DNS resolving. Libporty is configured using scconfig and the API is guaranteed to work the same way on all supported systems. An application that exclusively uses the libporty API will not require autotools/scconfig for porting. Libporty has been tested on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, multiple BSD variants, Minix, OpenSolaris, and some ancient Unix systems.
libnetfilter_cttimeout is an interface to Netfilter Connection Tracking timeouts. It provides a userspace library which provides a programming interface to the fine-grained connection tracking timeout infrastructure. With this library, you can create, update, and delete timeout policies which can be attached to traffic flows.
Zbxlog provides better integration of syslog messages (as defined in RFC 3124 and 5424) with Zabbix. Currently, Zabbix cannot process messages in syslog format; it can only process messages stored in flat files by standard syslog programs on Unix/Linux systems. This means that it can't process syslog messages from devices on which Zabbix cannot be installed. It also means that several fields of a syslog message are lost (timestamp, facility, and severity). This project adds support in Zabbix for a new kind of item: "syslog[<facility>,<regexp>,<severity>,<maxlines>]". It has been tested with Zabbix 1.8.2 and 1.8.3.
