netstat-monitor is a commandline tool for monitoring network connections. Its output is similar to the output from the netstat command with the options "netstat --inet -alp". Netstat-monitor can be left running, though, and will report new connections as they are made. Also, filters can be created to limit what's displayed to just what's unexpected or interesting.

pexconfig allows you to use a PXE-enabled network card as the first boot device for a system. This software suite also includes PXE-menu tools, which are used to control the booting of networked computers directly from the computer's console at the BIOS level before any operating system has been loaded. The menus provided by these tools can be used for diagnostic purposes, for firmware upgrades, or for selecting an operating system installation method.

SALI (Sara Automatic Linux Installer) is a tool that allows you to install Linux on multiple machines at once. It support several protocols for downloading by way of aria2 to install a machine. For example, BitTorrent and rsync are supported. SALI originates from SystemImager and still uses the same philosophy. It is a scalable method for performing unattended installation. SALI is mostly used in cluster setups.

dnsrev is a script that will generate reverse lookup (PTR) data for all hostnames defined in the given DNS zonefiles. It uses BIND's parser to read zonefiles, so it should support features like $INCLUDE and $GENERATE, and of course it understands IPv6 addresses.

pssh and shmux have some customization issues, like inflexible IPs/hostnames specification, simultaneously spawning threads for all hosts (pssh), which is a problem with many hosts, or having to download/upload files with a separate command. cssh.py was written to resolve such problems. It has a fixed (configurable) length queue of active SSH threads, the ability to specify IPs/hostnames in 3 ways, configurable username, password, and SSH port per host, simultaneous download and upload of files/directories (using a built-in SCP implementation), again with configurable queue length, the ability to upload and execute a script with one switch, and many other useful options, like additional saving cmd outputs in a separate file for each machine (-d output_dir), or suppressing printing out hosts for which a given command produced no output (-b).

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.

Vimv is a utility to help rename various files at once using a text editor. It opens the list of files in a directory inside a text editor (vi by default). Then, any changes made in the editor will be reflected in the filesystem (the files in the directory will be renamed to the names saved in the editor).

classh is yet another wrapper around ssh for running commands on a number of hosts concurrently. It is similar to xCAT, pssh, Cluster ssh, and a gaggle of other utilities. The only pre-requisite for classh is Python 2.4 or later, and no formal installation is required; a copy of the classh.py file is sufficient to run commands. The SSHJobMan class from classh can be used to create custom job management scripts. This class lets you either wait until all output has returned from a batch job or process the results as they become available by incrementally polling the running job. The output, error messages, exit code, and start and completion times of each job are stored in the results. It's been tested on jobs of over 25,000 hosts and handles over 10,000 hosts per hour across a WAN and without noticeable impact on the administrator's host.
