BGPHist is a tool that receives MP-BGP updates, decodes them, and writes them to a database for logging and monitoring purposes. It supports not only Internet routes, but also IPv4 VPN, IPV6 VPN, and L2VPN. It sounds text output, MySQL databases, and Oracle databases. For the MySQL backend, there is also a simple PHP frontend. It could be used to monitor and log an ISP's customer activity for Internet and VPNs, as a passive BGP looking glass, or as a backend for some external monitoring and accounting system.
The YB.ORM library aims to simplify writing C++ code that has to deal with SQL databases. The goal is to provide a convenient interface like SQLAlchemy (Python) or Hibernate (Java). The library itself is cross-platform and supports a variety of SQL dialects: SQLite3, MySQL, Postgres, Oracle, and Firebird. Integration with Boost, Qt4, and wxWidgets is built-in. In a typical usage scenario, you would describe your database schema and table relationships in a simple XML-based format, generate SQL code to populate database schema with tables, generate C++ classes, add application-specific logic to the classes, and use these classes in cooperation with the Session object to query objects from the database, create new or modify/delete existing objects, or link and unlink objects using relations. Simple serialization to XML is supported along with connection pooling.
AgileSites is a framework for Oracle WebCenter Sites (formerly Fatwire) designed to be easy to use and productive. It allows agile development practices and makes development with distributed teams (offshore) possible, trackable, and healthy. It is compatible with standard coding practices so Java developers will feel at home. It uses only documented APIs to keep support and compatibility between Fatwire/Sites versions.
Point-in-time recovery of an Oracle DB entails the use of transaction log files. The set of such logs grows over the lifetime of a DB, and their management often requires that they be copied to remote locations and/or backed up to offline storage. Alv can verify a set of archive logs prior to its use in a DB recovery scenario: checks are made on file size and type, and the checksum of each redo record is verified. The output is a sequence of log file numbers and character codes to indicate status and highlight any gaps in the sequence (which would stall a recovery). Environment variables can be set to allow for custom log file name formats and to check the DBNAME associated with each log.
ERDesignerNG is a Java-based entity relationship design and database modeling tool. It has a powerful WYSIWYG interface for physical database design, supports 2D and 3D database modeling, browsing, and design, handles tables, relations, indexes, and comments, supports a central repository for all models (Model Repository), supports subject areas, supports domains, supports MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQLServer, PostgreSQL, and H2, creates the SQL DDL statements for schema creation, has an integrated schema version control system, can generate schema migration scripts for every change, stores the database definition as XML files for further processing, can export the database schema as GIF, BMP, JPEG, or SVG files, has an integrated reverse engineering module for existing schemas, has a build in schema compare feature, can generate schema documentation as PDF, HTML, RTF, and other formats, and supports schema conversion between different dialects.
XIST is an extensible HTML and XML generator. It is also an XML parser with a very simple and Python-esque tree API. Every XML element type corresponds to a Python class, and these Python classes provide a conversion method to transform the XML tree (e.g. into HTML). XIST can be considered 'object-oriented XSLT'. XIST also includes a cross-platform templating language, Oracle utilities, and various other tools.
check_oracle_health is a plugin for the Shinken (Nagios) monitoring software that allows you to monitor various metrics of an Oracle database. It includes connection time, SGA data buffer hit ratio, SGA library cache hit ratio, SGA dictionary cache hit ratio, SGA shared pool free, PGA in memory sort ratio, tablespace usage, tablespace fragmentation, tablespace I/O balance, invalid objects, and many more.
HTSQL a high-level query language and Web service gateway for relational databases. It comes with source code and is royalty free for any use with open source database systems such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, etc. Licenses for using HTSQL in conjunction with proprietary databases such as Microsoft SQL and Oracle can be purchased.
sqlmap is a penetration testing tool that automates the process of detecting and exploiting SQL injection flaws and taking over of database servers. It comes with a detection engine, many niche features, and a broad range of switches including database fingerprinting, data fetching from the database, and accessing the underlying file system and executing commands on the operating system via out-of-band connections.
