mod_backhand is a load balancing module for Apache. It provides per-request HTTP redirection within a heterogeneous Apache server cluster. Each request is processed and run through a set of "candidacy functions" to determine which server is best suited to respond. The request is then proxied to that server. Facilities are in place to allow you to write your own dynamically loadable decision making algorithms. Everything about the request and the current availability of resources can be used in the decision-making process.
Monit is a utility for managing and monitoring processes, programs, files, directories, and devices on a Unix system. It conducts automatic maintenance and repair and can execute meaningful causal actions in error situations. It can be used to monitor files, directories, and devices for changes, such as timestamps changes, checksum changes, or size changes. It is controlled via an easy to configure control file based on a free-format, token-oriented syntax. It logs to syslog or to its own log file and notifies users about error conditions via customizable alert messages. It can perform various TCP/IP network checks, protocol checks, and can utilize SSL for such checks. It provides an HTTP(S) interface for access.
Mp3blaster is an interactive text-based program that plays several audio file types (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, wav, and sid). It is one of the few audio players for the text console that allows full interactive control during playback. One of its key features is the ability to compose a very flexible playlist (while playing!). It plays most MP3 formats and has full mixer support built in.
MP3c is a curses-based audio CD-to-MP3/OGG converter with CDDB support. It can be used in an interactive menu environment or a batch mode which lets you encode automatically. MP3c tries to find the most useful information in a CDDB entry, and even recognizes sampler CDs correctly. It is very configurable and can be used with every available encoder, ripper, and tag editor. It is available in different languages (currently English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Polish, and German).
myFriends is a small program for all of you who have an Apache WEB server and mySQL database running. It is an address list using a WEB interface. It maintains similar things to most address book tools, as well as family relationships. It will also store any number of dates, binary flags or plain text notes to each name. This version targets anyone who wishes to use a simple system and provides a starting point for learning these technologies.
Net::FTPServer is a full-featured, secure, extensible, and highly configurable FTP server which can serve files from a standard file system or a relational database. It is written in Perl, which provides natural protection against buffer overflows. It has feature parity with popular C-based servers such as wu-ftpd. The server offers virtual hosts (IP-based and experimental IP-less). It is configurable in Perl, for both small Perl "hacks" in the configuration file all the way up to complete server "personalities". It supports the latest RFCs and Internet Drafts. Authentication may be done through /etc/passwd, PAM or an authentication plug-in. Resource limits are supported. The server may run standalone or from inetd. chroot() jails are supported along with sophisticated programmable access control rules. All aspects of server use and configuration are comprehensively documented in a manual running to some 50 pages.
Nets is a flexible and extensible network inventory and asset management system that works on all Unix and Windows platforms, and works with most SQL databases. Its complete GUI allows you to maintain details of your entire network, from network links down to interfaces and routers. It assists in provisioning, costing, reporting, and maintaining network details. It includes a network browser, an extension API, and plugins for IP address map visualisation, reports, schematics.
oidentd is an RFC 1413 compliant ident daemon which runs on Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, Darwin, OpenBSD, and Solaris. It can handle IP masqueraded/NAT connections on Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD, and it has a flexible mechanism for specifying ident responses. Users can be granted permission to specify their own ident responses. Responses can be specified according to host and port pairs.
The OpenBSD project produces a free, multi-platform 4.4BSD-based UNIX-like operating system. Its goals emphasize portability, standardization, correctness, proactive security, and integrated cryptography. OpenBSD supports binary emulation of most programs from SVR4 (Solaris), FreeBSD, Linux, BSD/OS, SunOS, and HP-UX.
