HDT (Hardware Detection Tool) is an OS independent tool that displays low-level information on any x86 compatible system. It detects ACPI, CPU, PCI devices, DMI (memory, BIOS, motherboard, IPMI base board, chassis, batteries, CPU), disks (geometry, partitions), PXE environment, VESA modes, and VPD. It can also deduce the Linux kernel modules needed by a given host.
NConf is a Web tool for configuring the Nagios monitoring software. It differs from similar tools by offering enterprise-class features like templates, dependencies, and the ability to configure a large-scale, distributed Nagios server topology. It lets you effortlessly maintain a distributed Nagios topology. It has a user-friendly GUI. It features host and service templates, a graphical dependency viewer, multiple authentication modes, a Nagios configuration importer, a CSV file importer, and a Perl database API. The data schema is customizable and expandable.
config-package-dev is a system of CDBS modules for creating Debian configuration packages: packages that configure an existing Debian system by using dpkg-divert on configuration files. These modules attempt to make the process of creating configuration packages efficient by checking the md5sums of upstream configuration files that are to be modified and by automatically generating the relevant postinst code to perform the diversions using the standard debhelper mechanism.
PowerBroker Identity Services is an application that joins Linux, Unix, and Mac OS machines to Microsoft Active Directory and securely authenticates users with their domain credentials. Features include: joining non-Windows systems to Active Directory domains in a single step from the command line or from a GUI; authenticating users with a single user name and password; enforcing the same password policies for all platforms; supporting multiple forests with one-way and two-way cross forest trusts; caching credentials in case your domain controller goes down; and providing single sign-on for SSH and Putty. It does not require Active Directory schema changes for installation.
Gargoyle is an interface for small, widely available routers such as the Linksys WRT54G series and the La Fonera. It provides functionality above and beyond what the default software provides including sophisticated dynamic DNS, quality of service, and bandwidth monitoring tools. The primary goal is to provide a polished interface for these advanced tools that is at least as easy to configure as any existing firmware. This project is based on top of OpenWrt, but unlike other Web interfaces for OpenWrt it places a strong focus an usability and is meant for average users, not just power users.
The MyCAT project is a toolset for managing MySQL/Linux servers, and could be helpful for anyone managing a network of *nix servers whether running MySQL Cluster, standard replication, or not running MySQL at all. At present, it contains three programs. rcall eases use and administration of groups (clusters) of *nix servers by creating logical groupings and a single location from which to run commands on all servers while entering it only once. It requires only an SSH connection. rep_mon is a replication monitor that notifies if a server is lagging or has encountered any errors. It handles any replication topology easily. binlog_mon monitors disk space used by MySQL binary logs, purging only when disk space is needed. It checks all slaves to ensure that purged files are not still being read by slaves. It has configurable behavior in the event that a slave still needs the oldest file.
