Likwid is a set of easy to use command line tools for Linux. It supports programmers in developing high performance multi-threaded programs. "Likwid" stands for "Like I knew what I am doing". It contains the following tools: likwid-topology, which shows thread and cache topology; likwid-perfctr, which measures hardware performance counters on Intel and AMD processors; likwid-features, which shows and toggles hardware prefetch control bits on Intel Core 2 processors; likwid-pin, which pins a threaded application without touching its code (it supports pthreads, Intel OpenMP, and gcc OpenMP), likwid-powermeter which prints the Turbo mode steps and measures energy consumption on supported Intel processors, and likwid-bench, a low level benchmarking framework. It works with any standard Linux kernel. Likwid is lightweight and adds no overhead during measurements.
Gow (GNU On Windows) is a lightweight alternative to Cygwin. It uses a convenient Windows installer that installs about 130 extremely useful open source Unix applications compiled as native Win32 binaries. It is designed to be as small as possible, about 10 MB, as opposed to Cygwin which can run well over 100 MB depending upon options.
bed is an adjustable data format binary editor. Data formats are ASCII, unsigned and signed integers, float, bit-flags, bit-fields, labels, EBCDIC, and time_t. Different sizes and byte orderings are possible. Data types can be used in structures. Other data formats, filters, and procedures can be defined in plugins. It features copy, paste, undo, redo, search, replace, marks, record/play, and context sensitive help. bed can be used to edit raw hard drives. Under Linux and FreeBSD it is even usable without the X Window System.
repos-tools is a set of command-line utilities to make work on your code repositories faster and easier. It lets you push, pull, build, and do other things on your repositories all at once. The supported (D)VCSes are Git, Subersion, Bazaar, and Mercurial. For GitHub users, forking, following, watching, and dealing with issues can be done from the shell.
Sentinella is a desktop application that monitors your system activity and, when a condition is met, takes the action that you've chosen. While monitoring your CPU, memory, hard drive, and network usage, Sentinella can be programmed to take specific actions when setpoints for utilization or time are met. It can power off, reboot, or hibernate your system, kill an active process, throw an alarm, or execute any command. Sentinella integrates perfectly with the main desktop enviroments (KDE, GNOME, XFCE, and others) and works under many Unix systems.
