T/TCP For Linux is an implementation and integration of T/TCP (Transaction TCP) into Linux kernels. T/TCP is an extension for standard TCP which uses a monotonically increasing variable, CC (Connection Counts), to bypass the 3-way handshake and reduce TIME_WAIT perild. T/TCP greatly decreases the overhead that standard TCP introduces when dealing with transaction-oriented connections. T/TCP for Linux also focuses on the promotion of wide adoption of T/TCP, since it has indisputable performance advantages over standard TCP.
openMosix is a a set of extensions to the standard Linux kernel allowing you to build a cluster of out of off-the-shelf PC hardware. openMosix scales perfectly up to thousands of nodes. You do not need to modify your applications to benefit from your cluster (unlike PVM, MPI, Linda, etc.). Processes in openMosix migrate transparently between nodes and the cluster will always auto-balance.
The Web10G project (a follow-on from Web100) was created to produce a complete host-software environment that will run common TCP applications at 100% of the available bandwidth, regardless of the magnitude of a network's capability. Web10G has endowed TCP with better instrumentation. This instrumentation is the foundation for both the TCP autotuning performed in process-level code and the process-level tools designed to locate bottlenecks within the following major subsystems: the sending application, the sending OS, the Internet path, the receiving OS, and the receiving application. Measurement tools have also been built on this instrumentation to display performance indicators to end-users, as well as provide internal diagnostics for network and system administrators.
The Linux Kernel Patches Collection aims to put together some useful and interesting kernel patches which are not currently included in the standard kernel distribution. The patches included in this collection are ones that add features such as greater security, more hardware drivers, and journaling filesystems. This project merges all the different patches together so that they apply cleanly in a single step. A major goal of the project is to ensure that the patched kernel is stable and reliable.
The Working Overloaded Linux Kernel (WOLK) project provides stable and development kernels for either server or testing purposes. These kernels provide a server kernel and also a service for developers and end users who can't be up-to-date with the latest kernels/patches but want to test new kernel features. Patches may be added upon request.
Maudio is a simple audio mirroring device (a sort of audio pipe). Unlike a filesystem pipe, maudio behaves as a hardware soundcard. In particular, after installation of the driver, you get two audio-like devices (usually /dev/dsp0 and /dev/dsp1) which are connected to each other. Everything sent to the first DSP will appear as sound data on the second DSP and vice versa.
