BigDaddy is a program for monitoring servers. It is similar to Nagios, with the added benefit of also monitoring and controlling the crontab (or any scheduled application) across an entire fleet of servers. The application comes in the form of a daemon for monitoring and reporting as well as an easy-to-use Web-based GUI for controlling monitoring, viewing timelines of incidents, filing incidents and graphing statistics. The application is extensible with any sort of monitoring module and notification is based on a five step escalation process.
pam_redirector is a pluggable authentication module (PAM) that allows redirection of login credentials to a local UNIX stream socket server and includes an example simple socket server (written in Python) just to show how easy it is to do this redirection. It is a simple C module that can transfer (redirect) credentials to a long-running server written in a scripting language. This is preferable to using direct PAM support in a scripting language because instantiating a full interpreter on every login is quite expensive.
