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.
libmsntp is a full-featured, compact, portable SNTP library. libmsntp provides SNTP client and server functionality in a shared library with a simple API. SNTP (RFC 2030) is a simplified version of NTP, which allows precise synchronization of system clocks over a best-effort network.
Newsd is a standalone local NNTP news server for private newsgroup serving on a single server. It is useful for serving private newsgroup(s) to an intranet or the Internet, and can act as a simple mail gateway. However, it does not interface with other news servers and cannot manage distributed news feeds, i.e. Usenet news.
Bandwidth Monitor NG is a small console-based live network and disk I/O bandwidth monitor for Linux, BSD, Solaris, Mac OS X, and others. It supports /proc/net/dev, netstat, getifaddr, sysctl, kstat, /proc/diskstats, /proc/partitions, IOKit, devstat, and libstatgrab. An unlimited number of interfaces and disks are supported. Interfaces and disks are added or removed dynamically from the list. You can white or blacklist interfaces and disks. The output includes KB/s, Kb/s, packets, errors, average, max, and total sum, and can be viewed via curses, a plain console, CSV, or HTML. Configuration can be done through a config file or the command line.
NEye is a Netflow V5 collector. It logs incoming Netflow V5 data to ASCII, MySQL, or SQLite databases, and it makes full use of POSIX threads if available. It works on most major platforms (Linux, Solaris, AIX, Irix, HP/UX, Mac OS X, Digital Unix, etc.) and older ones too (Ultrix, Nextstep, etc.).
Ifchk is a network interface promiscuous mode detection tool that reports on the operational state of all configured interfaces present on the system. In addition, it will disable those interfaces found to be promiscuous if told to do so. Per-interface statistics can also be displayed, allowing administrators to perform traffic trend analysis, which could be an aid in the identification of possible inconsistencies or spikes in network traffic volume that may warrant further investigation.
MP-MICH is a Multi-platform uniform MPI implementation, based on MPICH and SCI-MPICH, resulting in a high performance, consistent MPI across both ethernet and SCI networks in a hybrid environment. There is a single, standardized source tree for all platforms. It is compliant with the MPI-1 standard.
bdmn is client/server-oriented backup system. The daemon runs on the machine being backed up, and the client runs on the machine that stores the backup. It is very simple, but very fast. It only uses tar, gzip, uuencode, and Perl, so it is portable to many operating systems. It includes a very simple access control system for itself.
