libnodelay is an LD_PRELOAD library for disabling Nagle's algorithm. Disabling Nagle's algorithm can result in a performance improvement for latency-sensitive applications that use TCP. Using the library may be easier than digging through a mess of code and confusing or obscure configuration options.
BlackRay is a relational database system designed to offer performance features commonly associated with search engines. It offers SQL support and sophisticated operational and management features. Load-balancing and operational stability by means of N+1 redundance are included. BlackRay is called a "Data Engine" since it combines traditional, relational database features and SQL with the power and flexibility of search engines. It is a true hybrid, offering transaction support, data-versioned snapshots, and sophisticated function-based indices. Wildcards, phonetic, and fuzzy logic searches are supported, as well. BlackRay supports a subset of the SQL92 standard and provides JDBC/ODBC/native driver options via the PostgreSQL protocol, in addition to an API based query option. The project is released under the GPLv2, with some drivers available under BSD-style licenses. Commercial support contracts are available as well.
Opsview Core is a network monitoring software application. It solves the challenges of monitoring modern IT and network systems. It is a drop-in replacement for Nagios Core, with full support for its plugins and 100% compatibility. It is easy to install and configure and is ideal for monitoring applications networks, and Windows, Linux, and Unix servers. VMWare, KVM, Xen, and Microsoft Hyper-V are supported, and Amazon EC2 and other cloud services can be monitored. It works with Opsview Mobile to allow you to monitor your systems on the go.
KernScope is a simple tool that parses the contents of /proc or /sys entries on a Linux system and graph their values. It is intended for developers, admins, or the curious and aids with the understanding of system performance and behavior. Users can select any integer values for graphing with a simple syntax.
ContiPerf is a lightweight testing utility to easily leverage JUnit 4 test cases as performance tests, e.g. for continuous performance testing. It is inspired by JUnit 4's easy test configuration with annotations, and by JUnitPerf's idea of wrapping Unit tests for performance testing, but is more powerful and easier to use. It uses Java annotations for defining test execution characteristics and performance requirements. You can mark a test to run a certain number of times, or to be repeatedly executed for a certain amount of time. Performance requirements can be maximum, average, medium, or any percentile execution time. You can run tests in two different modes, using them as simple unit tests or performance tests. Easy integration with Eclipse and Maven. Export of an execution summary to a CSV file. A small library without external dependencies (only JUnit).
BitNami Spree Stack greatly simplifies the deployment of Spree and its required dependencies. It can be deployed using a native installer, as a virtual machine, in the cloud, or as a module over an already installed infrastructure stack. Spree is a very powerful and flexible e-commerce platform written for the Ruby on Rails framework.
Panoptes is a scalable, extensible network and host monitoring tool. It includes a dynamic Web management interface based on the Dojo toolkit. It monitors SNMP, TCP port availability, ICMP, HTTP response and content, and SSL certificates internally. It supports monitoring anything else via shell scripts. It also includes a packet capture tool for discovery of hosts, port, and OS.
