Bashinator is a bash shell script framework. It provides flexible and powerful message handling that lets you print to stdout, log (to syslog or a logfile), and mail messages with a single message function. Exhaustive information is included in messages to ease debugging. This information includes timestamps, message severity, source file, line numbers, and function names. A facility for tracing the function call stack is provided. Sub-command output can be logged by capturing the stdout/stderr of external commands to a dedicated temporary logfile. The framework also provides lockfile handling.
SysopView shows information in a visually attractive way, like computers in movies do. The idea is that it can show information relevant to system administrators non-comprehensible for non-technical personnel, while still looking attractive even if you don't know what is shown. The current version can show nagios status data, webcam streams (mjpeg, jpeg, and video4Linux), and VNC, has a built-in terminal emulator in which regular text applications can be run, can sniff the network (including remotely) and dissect streams and show pictures which are sniffed, can show external bitmaps (from, for example, mrtg and rrdtool), and can scroll text (currently showing output of rssfeeds).
