balmail will email a daily report to your boss (or team leader) satisfying their need to quantify your daily technical acheivements. It can be customised to fit your typical list of one line tasks, and will automatically decide which you have done and how many each day.

A holiday feature ensures mail doesn't get sent whilst you are away.

bcnu is a Web-based system management tool which delivers information on the status of networked systems in a simple and easy-to-use manner.

Client systems can run an agent which logs information back to a central system. An agent scheduler is integrated to allow agents to be run at different intervals. Standard agents include ftp, http, disk space, logfiles, processes, and more.
