Edile is intended to be a basic but useful text editor for system administration and scripting purposes. It's something between a script and an application meant for quickly opening and viewing or editing files from the command line or piped from another process. Edile requires Python and PyGTK, and if you have GTKSourceView, it will use that. It has been tested on XP and Ubuntu.
rocknroll (Rsync fOr baCKup and Roll) is an incremental backup maker based on rsync. It backs up a remote directory tree to a destination directory on the local host. For this backup, it manages a set of archives named tag.1, tag.2, etc. Using the famous "link-dest" option of rsync, it keeps only the difference between the different archives.
Yasma (Yet Another Sendmail Logfile Analyzer) is a reporting tool for sendmail log files. It provides a nice overview of your mail traffic like: messages transferred, some average values, top lists of messages sent, received, rejected, etc., and top lists of supposed spammers, status messages, relay hosts, and mailers. It analyzes one or more log files from the command line and writes an HTML report. For security, it can hide the user part of mail addresses listed in the report. A GeoIP database can be used to show country information.
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.
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).
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).
