Crash Dummy is a Java Web application to help IT professionals set up Java application server environments. It has several features to help make this easier, including simulating failures and diagnostics. Crash Dummy is particularly helpful for setting up complex clustered environments and monitoring infrastructure.
MuleSoft Tcat Server is enterprise Tomcat made simple: a fully supported Tomcat server that allows developers to easily build and test today’s connected Web applications, and that simplifies Tomcat management and application provisioning tasks for administrators. Tcat Server has an easy graphical installer and headless installer for Linux (multi-distro: RHEL, Debian, CentOS, Fedora, Ubuntu, openSUSE, etc), Windows, Solaris 10, and Solaris 11. Tcat also offers reliable JVM restarts, server group deployments, a REST API for scripting the console in any language, a groovy shell built into the console, and JMX alerting and monitoring features.
mod_reserve is an Apache2 module for Linux that extends the Apache HTTP server, allowing it to reserve a certain CPU bandwidth for the provisioning of a service. This module exploits the functionality provided by AQuoSA, whose API is used to reserve CPU bandwidth for execution of tasks. In this way, the module can force the Web server to provide services, like CGI or Perl scripts, using exactly the configured CPU bandwidth. This behaviour is useful in order to provide Quality of Service to certain types of services, or to prevent the kinds of attacks in which a service can starve all the others.
Perlbal is a Perl-based reverse proxy load balancer and Web server. It processes hundreds of millions of requests a day just for LiveJournal, Vox, and TypePad, and dozens of other "Web 2.0" applications. One of the defining things about Perlbal is that almost everything can be configured or reconfigured on the fly without needing to restart the software.
WAWAS is a full PHP application server. The main server core listens to any IP/port and passes data to any mounted protocol on the listener. Implemented protocols are HTTP1.1/1.0, Comet, Telnet, DNS, mail, and FTP. Each protocol runs modules that build response data based on the requests. Memory object persistence allows data and caches to be shared across protocols or time. All configuration uses XML. It can be launched as a daemon, with or without forked workers, and is nearly as fast as Apache in preliminary tests.
