NoSpex is a Python scripted realtime graphing library designed to be easily employed by security consultants and reverse engineers for teasing apart and depicting the relationships between processes in a system under analysis. It is realtime in the sense that the graph is continuously rendered and animated as new relationships are introduced. It is easily employed in the sense that all the bookkeeping is done by the Python module and exposed using a simple thread-safe API. NoSpex relies on the SDL graphic library for a frame buffer and Cairo for rendering to the frame buffer. This combination produces a fast and visually elegant graph that should be portable wherever SDL and Cairo can be found.
SysopView shows information in a visually attractive way, like computers in movies do. The idea is that it can show information relevant to system administrators non-comprehensible for non-technical personnel, while still looking attractive even if you don't know what is shown. The current version can show nagios status data, webcam streams (mjpeg, jpeg, and video4Linux), and VNC, has a built-in terminal emulator in which regular text applications can be run, can sniff the network (including remotely) and dissect streams and show pictures which are sniffed, can show external bitmaps (from, for example, mrtg and rrdtool), and can scroll text (currently showing output of rssfeeds).
