Kerberized Apps consists of TELNET, FTP, and RSH/RCP clients and servers packaged for VAS- enabled platforms. These tools give users the benefits of single sign-on for the more traditional remote access tools. It is derived from the apps component of Heimdal Kerberos and was formerly known as VAS Apps.
Puppet lets you centrally manage every important aspect of your system using a cross-platform specification language that manages all the separate elements normally aggregated in different files, including users, cron jobs, and hosts, along with obviously discrete elements like packages, services, and files. Its simple declarative specification language provides powerful classing abilities for drawing out the similarities between hosts while allowing them to be as specific as necessary, and it handles dependency and prerequisite relationships between objects clearly and explicitly.
Moab Grid Suite is a professional grid workload management solution that integrates scheduling, management, monitoring, and reporting of workloads across independent clusters. Moab makes moving to a grid easy by adding grid-optimized job submission and management in a matter of minutes. Moab optimizes data staging and seamlessly integrates with existing security mechanisms or with grid security tool kits such as Globus. It gives sites extensive control over ownership-based access, priority, and service levels. It provides fine-tuned control over the workload and resources to make the grid usable.
NeedSecure is program that makes it possible for system administrators and Web masters to protect member areas with passwords. It supports allowing and denying access to any protected directory for all members or for every member individually, recursive password protection, three levels of administration, extended member profiles with additional fields, limited and unlimited member accounts, language files and email templates that can be edited from an admin panel, optional activation codes, UTF-8 encoding support, statistics, and more.
sudosh can be used as a default login shell or a filter that takes advantage of PTY devices in order to sit between the user's keyboard and a program, in this case a shell. It was designed specifically to be used in conjunction with sudo, and allows the execution of a root or application shell with logging. It is basically a VCR and will record root shell sessions and also has the ability to play back the sessions as they were originally recorded. It records all input/output, keyboard input, and timing information so that the session can be played back in the original format.
OpenSMART is a monitoring (and reporting) environment for servers and applications in a network. Its main features are a nice Web front end, monitored servers requiring only a Perl installation, XML configuration, and good documentation. It is easy to write more checks. Supported platforms are Linux, HP/UX, Solaris, AIX, *BSD, and Windows (only as a client).
Xi-Batch is a very flexible job scheduling and workload management system. It provides time-based scheduling as well as load management, dependency-based job execution, and job prioritization. Each job's environment (environment variables and I/O default paths) is established by the system based on user ID. It can manage jobs in a single server or across a network of any number of servers, even different UNIX/Linux platforms. It can be controlled by CLI, a GUI (Motif), A Windows client, a Web-browser, or through an API. It works as an intelligent job dispatcher in grids or other server clusters.
