Check Website is a performance monitoring and uptime notification tool. It will check if a Website is up, and check the response time of the site. The administrator can then choose to receive an email notification if the site is down, or if the site response time is too slow. All results are also written to a daily log file.
bcnu is a Web-based system management tool which delivers information on the status of networked systems in a simple and easy-to-use manner. It uses a web browser to display information about hosts in a tabular form. Historical information can be held indefinitely, and there is a powerful query tool available to interrogate it. Client systems can run an agent which logs information back to a central system. An agent scheduler is integrated to allow agents to be run at different intervals. Standard agents include ftp, http, disk space, logfiles, processes, and more.
Helpcore is an enterprise grade help and servicedesk application. It acts as a central information hub for everybody that is involved in the help and service desk process. Managers can see overview and decision making information, system administrators can see the status of their network and software, and users can see the current status of their problems.
WebJob downloads a program over HTTP/HTTPS and executes it in one unified operation. The output, if any, may be directed to stdout/stderr or a WebJob server. WebJob may be useful in incident response and intrusion analysis as it provides a mechanism to run known good diagnostic programs on a potentially compromised system. WebJob also provides a framework that is conducive to centralized management. Therefore, it can support and help automate a large number of common administrative tasks and host-based monitoring scenarios.
Tellu is inventory management software that collects hardware and software information automatically from networked servers and workstations, and stores collected data in MySQL database where data is easily readable using a comprehensive user interface usable by any modern Web browser. Devices (like routers and switches), peripherals (like video projectors and displays), and service providers (like hosting and maintenance) can also be stored in the database using a Web interface called Tellu Skin. Inventory management is only one part of Tellu's capability, Tellu offers the possibility to group together workstations, servers, devices, passwords, file attachments, and others to form a faction. For example, a faction can contain all the stuff that a development team needs in their development environment.
Libsmbios is a cross-platform library intended to be used to obtain common information available in a BIOS. Major features include the ability to update the BIOS on Dell systems (in conjunction with the Dell RBU Linux kernel driver), programmatic access to information in SMBIOS tables, and the ability to obtain Dell system-specific information such as the Dell System ID number, service tag, and asset tag. Future plans include APIs for $PIR and mptable mapping. There is a C API for some of the more commonly used functions, and example binaries to show off most of the facilities.
Host Grapher is a very simple collection of Perl scripts that provide graphical display of CPU, memory, process, disk, and network information for a system. There are clients for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, SunOS, AIX and Tru64. No socket will be opened on the client, nor will SNMP be used for obtaining the data.
Weplab is a tool to review the security of WEP encryption in wireless networks from an educational point of view. Several attacks are available, so it can measure the effectiveness and minimum requirements of each one. Currently, weplab supports several methods, and it is able to crack the WEP key from 600,000 encrypted packets.
esniff (formerly dbsniff) is a very basic set of tools useful for network traffic analysis and scripting across machines. It consists of three tools: esniff, nwait/npush, and loss_chk/loss_srv. esniff is a packet sniffer based on pcap that does certain things like traffic summaries (not better but hopefully easier than tcpdump). nwait and npush implement the DOS "pause" command working over the network. loss_chk and loss_srv are for checking the loss rate of a line.
