Kernel Security Checker is a useful tool to locate attackers residing within a system by employing a direct analysis of the kernel through /dev/kmem and bypassing the hiding techniques of the intruder (kernel static recompilation or use of LKMs). It can find the modified syscalls from userspace, detect the promiscuous interfaces, and find the modifications applied to a protocol.
The goal of Escape-K is to provide an all-in-one platform for IT service management. This means that using a single application (the Escape-K client console), users are able to manage any sized computer organization, from workstation and printers to servers, databases, or network devices. Escape-K follows the main guidelines recommended by ITIL. Therefore, the core of the application is the composed of the CMDB. Depending of the chosen perspective, Escape-K users can deal with incidents and problem resolution as well as server or database administration.
check_logfiles is a plugin for Nagios which checks logfiles for defined patterns. It is capable of detecting logfile rotation. If you tell it how the rotated archives look, it will also examine these files. Unlike check_logfiles, traditional logfile plugins were not aware of the gap which could occur, so under some circumstances they ignored what had happened between their checks. A configuration file is used to specify where to search, what to search, and what to do if a matching line is found.
check_oracle_health is a plugin for the Shinken (Nagios) monitoring software that allows you to monitor various metrics of an Oracle database. It includes connection time, SGA data buffer hit ratio, SGA library cache hit ratio, SGA dictionary cache hit ratio, SGA shared pool free, PGA in memory sort ratio, tablespace usage, tablespace fragmentation, tablespace I/O balance, invalid objects, and many more.
memtester is a user-space utility for testing the memory subsystem in a computer to determine if it is faulty. It does a good job of finding intermittent faults and non-deterministic faults. It has many tests to help catch borderline memory. memtester should compile and run on any 32- or 64-bit Unix or Unix-like system.
SystemRescueCd is a Linux system available from a bootable CDROM that provides an easy way to perform administrative tasks on your computer, such as creating and editing the partitions of the hard disk or backing up data. It contains a lot of system utilities (such as parted, partimage, and fstools), and basic programs (such as editors, midnight commander, and network tools). It also includes GParted, a Partition Magic clone that makes editing partitions easy with its graphical user interface. This CDROM aims to be very easy to use and accessible to everybody, and it also provides advanced personalization features.
ProcMeter3 is a program for monitoring the system status and other information and displaying it in a series of graphs or as text. Most of the information comes from the /proc filesystem (cpu usage, load average , processes information, memory usage, network traffic, interrupts etc.). Other information is available for other sources (date, time, email status, log file length, disk status etc.). The program is modular and highly configurable.
Nagstamon is a Nagios status monitor with a UI that resides in the systray or as a floating statusbar on your desktop. It informs you in realtime about the status of your Nagios, Icinga, Opsview, Ninja, Check_MK/Multisite, or Centreon monitored network. It alerts you with sound and visual notification. Failed hosts and services are easy to connect with by SSH, RDP, and VNC. It works best with GNOME, but also with KDE and Windows.
