zrep provides an easy-to-use program to manage zfs filesystem replication and failover. No configuration files are required. The program is developed under Solaris, but may work with any up to date zfs implementation. The executable is a single script. Initialization does a full data copy, but subsequent syncs are incrementals. It uses internal locking to make sure there is no danger of overlap if you just shove it in cron to run every minute. Design target is more "near-time replication", since the sync can be run every minute or more. However, it could conceivably be used for "backup" purposes as well.
HATop is an interactive ncurses client and real-time monitoring and statistics displaying tool for the HAProxy TCP/HTTP load balancer. HATop's appearance is similar to top(1). It supports various modes for detailed statistics of all configured proxies and services in near real-time. In addition, it features an interactive CLI for the HAProxy Unix socket. This allows administrators to control the given HAProxy instance (change server weight, put servers into maintenance mode, etc.) directly out of HATop (using keybinds or the CLI) and monitor the results immediately.
Multiplexing Console Manager is a daemon that provides multiplexed access to network accessible consoles (e.g. terminal servers, Serial Over LAN, etc). Features include kerberized authentication, ACL based entitlements, multiple viewers/editors, full logging (simple text and timestamped, replayable XML) of all output.
Osmius is a monitoring tool for everything connected to a network. It features very high performance. It allows you to create and integrate business services, SLAs, and ITIL processes such as availability management and capacity planning. Osmius offers real GIS capabilities, BI, and data mining to keep track of SLA requirements.
rmp2dstream will convert an RPM package to a dstream format package under Solaris. It preserves the user, group, and permissions of the RPM files as well as pre and post install scripts. It is intended for using RPM to build a package but using Solaris' tools to manage the final product.
CTL is a cross-platform control dispatching tool that makes it easy to automate any kind of distributed systems management or application provisioning task. Rather than writing complex and error-prone scripts that over utilize "for loops", CTL handles the network dispatching for you and allows you to focus on the actual management tasks you need to accomplish. In addition to being a dispatching tool, CTL comes with pre-built cross-platform utilities so you don't have to script actions like file distribution or process and port checking. You can also write your own custom utilities and share them with others in your organization. Custom utilities are defined in XML, and your scripting can be done in multiple scripting languages (Perl, Python, etc.), *nix shell, Windows batch, and/or Ant.
