nnmon is a central database and a Web interface for the nmon program's data. It allows you to store and view nmon data instantly. nnmon_sender.pl is a pure Perl script. It runs the external nmon program and opens its output file for reading. Every line read from the file is sent to the nnmon_server.py program via TCP/IP socket. nnmon_server.py reads incoming data, parses it, and inserts the result to the database. nnmonweb is a PHP script that lets you view monitored systems in a tree. If there is data for a system for the last 12 hours, it will show a chart on the right hand side. The database and server components have been tested on RHEL 5.5. The client parts have also been tested on AIX 6.1 and RHEL 5.5.
PyMQI is a Python library for working with WebSphere MQ (formerly known as MQSeries) implementing MQI and PCF protocols. It allows one to connect to queues, put, browse, get messages, and to programmatically administer MQ objects. PyMQI has been used in production environments for several years and is known to work on Linux, Windows, Solaris, AIX, and HP-UX with queue managers running on Linux, Windows, Solarix, AIX, HP-UX, and z/OS mainframe.
Charm++ is a portable adaptive runtime system for parallel applications. Application developers create an object-based decomposition of the problem of interest, and the runtime system manages issues of communication, mapping, load balancing, fault tolerance, and more. Sequential code implementing the methods of these parallel objects is written in C++. Calls to libraries in C++, C, and Fortran are common and straightforward. Charm++ is portable across individual workstations, clusters, accelerators (Cell SPEs and GPUs), and supercomputers such as those sold by IBM (Blue Gene, POWER) and Cray (XT3/4/5/6). Applications based on Charm++ are used on at least 5 of the 20 most powerful computers in the world.
Bcfg2 helps system administrators produce a consistent, reproducible, and verifiable description of their environment, and offers visualization and reporting tools to aid in day-to-day administrative tasks. It is based on an operational model in which the specification can be used to validate and optionally change the state of clients, but in a feature unique to bcfg2 the client's response to the specification can also be used to assess the completeness of the specification. Using this feature, bcfg2 provides an objective measure of how good a job an administrator has done in specifying the configuration of client systems. Bcfg2 is therefore built to help administrators construct an accurate, comprehensive specification. Bcfg2 has been designed from the ground up to support gentle reconciliation between the specification and current client states. It is designed to gracefully cope with manual system modifications. Bcfg2 can also enable the construction of complex change management and deployment strategies.
The ReportLab Toolkit is a library for programatically creating documents in PDF format. It can quickly and easily create or automate complex, data-driven documents. It features a real document layout engine, flowable objects (such as paragraphs, headlines, tables, images, and graphics), support for embedded Type-1 or TTF fonts, support for Asian, Hebrew, and Arabic characters, support for bitmap images in any popular format, support for vector graphics, a library of reusable primitive shapes, and an extensible widget library. It includes simple demos and more complex tools. It allows for any data sources.
Exscript is a scripting language for automating network connections over protocols such as Telnet or SSH. It is in some ways comparable to Expect, but has some unique features that make it a lot easier to use and understand for non-developers. It supports parallelization, logging, authentication mechanisms, and a lot more.
PySQL aims to be a full replacement for sqlplus (and much more). It has features such as history, completion, and line editing. It has high level functions (searching for tables, indexes, count, explain plan, list of sessions, etc.), proper output for screen and files (CSV ready for inclusion in spreadsheets), support for user-defined SQL, background queries, graphical output for the schema data model, object dependencies, a PL/SQL package function call tree, and much more.
Splunk is an engine for machine data. Use Splunk to collect, index, and harness the fast moving machine data generated by all your applications, servers, and devices: physical, virtual, and in the cloud. Search and analyze all your real-time and historical data from one place. Splunking your machine data lets you troubleshoot problems and investigate security incidents in minutes, not hours or days. Monitor your end-to-end infrastructure to avoid service degradation or outages. Meet compliance mandates at lower cost. Correlate and analyze complex events spanning multiple systems. Gain new levels of operational visibility and intelligence for IT and the business.
