The Event monitor project is an approach to network management based on message passing between manager and managed nodes. It's based on a client/server platform, where the server is the manager node, and all clients are managed nodes. This tool is under development, but has lots of features implemented, like a graphical console, message passing layer, one disk monitor and clients for sending messages (both API and binary forms are provided).
FAI (fully automatic installation) is a non-interactive system to install a Debian GNU/Linux operating system on a group of PCs or a Linux cluster. After installation, the systems are fully configured and ready to run. It is a scalable method for performing unattended installation and updating. Changes to the configuration files of the operating system are made by cfengine, shell, and Perl scripts.
FileTraq is a shell script designed to be run periodically from the root crontab. Each time, it compares a list of system files with the copies that it keeps. Any changes are reported in diff or patchfile style, and dated backup copies are kept. It lets you keep an eye on intruders who might change system files, or other sysadmins who don't tell you about changes. It even helps you keep track of your own changes, along with dated backups.
fillrio.sh is a standalone shell script that loads random MP3 files to all available memory in your rio. The RIO utility is required to interface with the RIO hardware. Special features of this tool include the ability to recursively scan your music archive directories, specify search strings and add to what's already loaded.
FSlint is a toolkit to find various forms of lint on a filesystem. At the moment it reports duplicate files, bad symbolic links, troublesome file names, empty directories, non stripped executables, temporary files, duplicate/conflicting (binary) names, and unused ext2 directory blocks.
Firewall is a set of scripts (firewall, fwup, and fwdown) that implement an ipchains firewall and various forms of network address and port translation. All you have to do is read the policy file and edit it to reflect your topology and filtering policy. It supports many different types of network topology (single host, traditional forwarding, masquerading, port forwarding, alias port forwarding and NAT), up to 10 untrusted interfaces each with their own policy, and over 50 network applications. It also supports centralised administration of multiple remote firewalls (meta-firewall).
gBootRoot makes the construction and development of distributions fun and simple with its Root Methods (Yard) and user-mode-linux test bed. Finish the product with a Boot Method (2-disk compression supported). Normal (non-root) users can make root filesystems and boot disks. It includes the make_debian script to create a testable user-mode-linux base Debian system, add-ons to enhance methods, and an MTD Emulator useful for running distributions made with the jffs/jffs2 filesystem.
