LinkScan is an industrial-strength link checking and Web site management tool. It delivers flexible test automation capabilities for the entire spectrum of Web-based applications. LinkScan offers exceptional performance and scalability, and it allows Web masters and quality assurance engineers to quickly create completely automated test suites. It features cross-platform and cross-product compatibility to provide seamless migration. LinkScan operates on AIX, BSDI, FreeBSD, Digital Unix, HP/UX, IRIX, all major Linux distributions, SunOS/Solaris, and Microsoft Windows (95/98/ME and NT 4.0/2000/XP).
The main goal of the Linux Trustees project is to create an advanced permission management system for Linux. The solution proposed is mainly inspired by the approach taken by Novell Netware and the Java security API. Special objects (called trustees) can be bound to every file or directory. The trustee object can be used to ensure that access to a file, directory, or directory with subdirectories is granted (or denied) to a certain user or group (or all except user or group). Trustees are like POSIX ACLs, but trustee objects can affect entire subdirectory trees, while ACLs a single file. Trustees works with the 2.6 Linux kernel.
Linuxconf is a sophisticated administrative tool. It is both an activator and a configurator, and can manage quite a few system tasks. It has some unique features, like configuration versioning and multiple machine management. It supports multiples languages (French, German, Italian, etc.) and can be administered from ncurses (text), Web, command line, or X (GNOME or wxxt) user interfaces.
lma-init is a set of shell scripts that aim at replacing the scripts run during system bootup and runlevel changes. At the moment, only serious hackers should attempt to install this package due to the lack of documentation. Apart from being colourful, it's ideal for large-site-administration with remote distribution systems since the whole configuration can be done using a single file, if necessary.
Logtool is a syslog file parser, report generator, and monitoring utility. It takes logfiles from syslog, multilog, or other ASCII log generating sources as input from stdin, and depending on command line switches and/or config file settings, will parse and filter out unwanted messages from the logfile accordingly, and generate output in ANSI color, formatted ASCII, CSV (for spreadsheets), or HTML format. It is very handy for use in automated nightly reports, and online monitoring of logfile activity. It comes with some simple example scripts and documentation.
log_analysis is a log file analysis engine that extracts relevant data for any of the recognised log messages and produces a summary that is much easier to read. It can be configured to recognize entirely new log types. log_analysis natively understands about 100 different kinds of syslog messages, as well as sulog and wtmp messages for Linux, Solaris, and OpenBSD. It also has optional continuous monitoring capabilities, with both text and GUI modes.
