MobileMesh is a collection of non-proprietary protocols and software tools which provide media independent mobile ad-hoc networking capability. The protocols have been documented in Internet Drafts and submitted to the IETF's MANET Working Group. These drafts are included in the software distribution. Each MobileMesh protocol is implemented as a separate software tool. A network visualization tool is also provided which displays the topology of the mobile ad-hoc network in real time.
Frunk is a simple program that detects and reports interface status changes using SNMP. Basically, it detects if one or more of a set of pre-configured interfaces are up or down and reports the fact by emailing alerts. It is good for monitoring several interfaces on several devices, normally routers, and checking for link failures. It also optionally creates and constantly updates an HTML document containing information on those interfaces which are down.
