GeneSyS aims to define and implement a middleware architecture for generic system monitoring and supervision. It is an Information Society Project (IST-2001-34162) sponsored by the European Commission. It provides a middleware- and agent-based approach for system monitoring and management. It uses WebServices technology (SOAP) for communication between components and XML-based descriptions of monitoring information.
Big Brother is a combination of monitoring methods. Unlike SNMP where information is just collected and devices polled, Big Brother is designed in such a way that each local system broadcasts its own information to a central location. Simultaneously, Big Brother also polls all networked systems from a central location. This creates a highly efficient and redundant method for proactive network monitoring.
SysOrb is a client/server package that can monitor servers remotely (such as Web servers), or monitor devices on servers (such as disks, memory, load, etc.). It will alert the administrators via e-mail or pager if a server is entering a critical condition, and has its own database backend, allowing for massive collection of system statistics.
TestNetwork is a commercial version of TestMaker that provides a distributed test environment for scalability and performance tests and service monitoring. TestNetwork runs TestMaker intelligent test agents on multiple machines to achieve virtual user levels not possible with TestMaker. It makes it easy to configure a rack of servers to create 10,000 to 100,000 virutal users. It also makes it easy to set up a group of servers distributed around your network to show how your Web-enabled application, including Web Service, is performing.
The PHP SETI@home web monitor is a very simple PHP script to monitor a single SETI@Home program running on a workstation or server via the local Web server. It displays general information of the user, the current work unit and the processing statistics. It also displays a skymap to show the source of the current data.
Schroedinger is the combination of Apache Tomcat with a nice, clean Swing GUI. It provides an easy way to create and test JSP and Servlet Web applications. It records every JSP/HTTP activity so that every possible bug can be corrected immediately. Schroedinger can be used in personal mode, which prevents others from using its JSP Server while you develop the application. Alternatively, Schroedinger's working directory can be opened via file-sharing, so that a JSP can be copied to any computer of the JSP development team.
JDiskReport enables you to understand how much space the files and directories consume on your disk drives, and it helps you find obsolete files and folders. The tool analyses your disk drives and collects several statistics which you can view as overview charts and details tables.
