sessiond allows a cluster of SSL/TLS servers to share their session caches in order to prevent each node of the cluster from negotiating a separate session. SSL/TLS session is basically a set of secret values (symmetric encryption keys, MAC secrets) shared between a client and a server. The use of asymmetric cryptography required to establish new sessions is the main performance bottleneck of the SSL/TLS protocol.
iBeans aims to make integration for Web applications much easier than it is today. It does this by focusing on simplicity and task-based integration and avoids technical jargon and new concepts wherever possible. It offers easy to use integration for doing things like publishing and subscribing to JMS queues and topics, sending and receiving email, polling resources such as databases and ATOM feeds, task scheduling, creating HTTP/Rest services, consuming external services such as Amazon EC2 and S3, Twitter, Flickr, Google, and much more. It proves a Tomcat distribution that drops straight into Tomcat, with no need to mess with your project dependencies, and works with developer tooling for Tomcat or Tcat. It has a very simple API using annotations. This means iBeans can be plugged into your existing Web apps easily. It includes easy unit and mock testing using JUnit. IBeans Central offers a great place to discover and try new iBeans in your applications.
Newpods can help you sync recently downloaded podcasts to your portable device. It will look through a directory tree to find podcasts that have been downloaded since the last time the program was run. It will then insert two commands into the bash history list: one to pushd to the podcast directory on your portable device, so you can clean out old files as needed, and one to copy the new podcasts to your portable device. If you're tired of copying files by hand, but don't want to use a heavyweight GUI solution, newpods might be right for you.
Torrus is an alternative software platform to MRTG, Cricket, and Cacti. In most cases it brings more flexibility and performance. It is able to poll more than 50,000 SNMP OIDs every 5 minutes from a single moderately equipped server, with simultaneous threshold monitoring of half of them. Torrus is designed to be a universal data series processing framework. Its scalable hierarchical design, application-independent core, and highly customizable architecture make it an attractive choice both for small installations and for big enterprise or carrier networks. Although most users deploy Torrus for SNMP monitoring, it might be useful for data series of any nature. Tobi Oetiker's RRDtool is used for data storage.
iSfinx is a Web services based prototype of the Sfinx PIM. Sfinx is a personal knowledge and data manager which can manage your private data like contacts, events, notes, files, tasks, know-how, etc. Each data item is structured with abstract "slices", which are organized with a category hierarchy that you can define for your own needs. Every data item must be connected to some Sfinx object. Events can be connected to contacts, contacts to tasks, tasks to data sources, know-how, or notes, and so on. You can freely edit, delete, or reconnect them. Additional tags, which can be slices or other Sfinx objects, can also be attached to items, so any data you enter to Sfinx can be cross-connected with any other data or abstract category. A search engine helps you to navigate in this information ocean.
CairoForPHP is an application that demonstrates several functions of the Cairo implementation for PHP. It uses a technique with which, from the same source, it can run both as a desktop application with PHP-GTK and as a Web application, thus demonstrating how PHP-GTK can be used as "just one" method of output and integrated into multi-platform, multi-environment applications. The samples in CairoForPHP are fully adjustable, and code can be "dropped-in" easily in the non-Phar versions: all required additional data interfaces are XML-based. The integrated samples come both pre-rendered and in live rendering, demonstrating both abilities of Cairo here and PHP-GTK's utilization with Cairo in the realization of it. CairoForPHP uses several technologies in order to achieve all this, such as XML-based data interfaces (including XML Schema validation), PHP-GTK, Phar compatibility, Gettext integration, and others.
