Warewulf is an operating system management toolkit designed to facilitate large scale deployments of homogeneous and heterogeneous systems on physical, virtual and cloud based infrastructures. Originally, the Warewulf project pioneered the concept of stateless computing in HPC, setting the standard for large-scale cluster provisioning. It provided two functions, provisioning and monitoring but the two functions did not communicate within Warewulf itself, nor was it possible to hook other functions directly into Warewulf itself. Today, Warewulf is more than just a basic provisioning and monitoring solution as it now implements an abstract, object-oriented data store and a modular interface that facilitates a highly extensible, customizable feature set. Current and planned modules include monitoring (operating system, services, filesystems, etc.), provisioning, power management, user management, configuration management, event/trigger handling and notification, scheduler integration, cloud services (both local and remote), etc.

gcp (Goffi's CoPier) is a command line file copying tool, loosely inspired by cp, but with high level functionality like a progress indicator, the ability to continue copying multiple files even when there is a problem with one of them, and the use of a journal to track successful copying. File names can be fixed to ensure compatibility with the target filesystem. If you launch a copy operation when another is already running, the files are added to the first queue to avoid hard drive thrashing. You can keep track of files you have copied, and re-copy them later. gcp is approximately option-compatible with cp.

@ (monkey-tail) is a simple collection of simple commands. Built-in commands include listing of memory usage and open files for a process (by name or PID), running processes detached from a terminal, and running a program only once. @ can merge external pieces of code into itself to provide extra commands. Additionally, these "externals" can then be updated from their source. Currently there are externals available for extracting archive files (including nested archives), setting the GNOME desktop wallpaper image, and for replicating @ to another host via SSH. Externals can easily be written, as they are simply collections of Bash functions. It is completely self contained and self modifying, and is implemented in a single file.

Cock provides a digital version of a petcock. A petcock is a valve or faucet used to drain pressure, as from a boiler. Cock drains I/O pressure from the kernel. Without parameters, the output rate automatically adjusts; cock defers output when necessary in order to mitigate I/O spikes. Otherwise, a numeric parameter specifies megabytes per second.
