VICE is a Versatile Commodore Emulator, i.e. a program that runs on a Unix, Win32, MS-DOS, Mac OS X, Amiga, or RiscOS machine and executes programs intended for the old 8-bit Commodore computers. The current version emulates the C64, C128, VIC20, Plus4, C64-DTV, all the PETmodels, and the CBM-II (aka C610).
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.
Forban is a P2P file sharing application for link-local and local area networks. Forban works independently from the Internet and uses only the local area capabilities to announce, discover, search, or share files. Forban relies on HTTP and is opportunistic, meaning that it replicates any files of interest seen in its proximity. The Forban protocols are minimalistic to ease the production of other implementations.
GetData is a library that provides an API to interface with dirfile databases. The dirfile database format is designed to provide a fast, scalable format for storing and reading binary, synchronously-sampled, time-ordered data. GetData was originally written for the BOOMERanG and BLAST experiments as a data format suitable for use for both quick-look and data reduction. It is now used by many other cosmological and astrophysical experiments including ACT, Planck, Spider, Keck, as well as other projects.
dd is a Unix command line utility for copying data. ddpt adds features for efficiently copying large amounts of data to and from disks. Apart from accessing disks using traditional Unix read() and write() calls, ddpt can optionally use SCSI pass-through interfaces to send SCSI commands to perform a copy. In Linux, the pass-through can be used to send TRIM commands to SSDs. It is written for Linux with ports to FreeBSD, Solaris, and Windows.
Postbix is a plugin designed to work with Zabbix Enterprise Monitor to provide multi-tiered monitoring and performance and availability reporting and measurement for PostgreSQL databases, along with server performance metrics. It provides an effective mechanism to acquire data from numerous PostgreSQL instances, and in turn provides this information for monitoring and performance metrics to your Zabbix server. You can then utilise the reporting capabilities of Zabbix for all data collected, and provide analysis such as graphs and service-level agreement metrics for stakeholders. The current distribution contains a set of pre-defined templates that incorporate alerting and graphing capabilities from initial deployment. However, these can be fine tuned to suit your needs and data/monitoring requirements.
