Dynamic Probes (Dprobes) is a generic and pervasive system debugging facility that will operate under the most extreme software conditions such as debugging a deep-rooted operating system problem in a live environment. Dprobes allows the insertion of fully automated breakpoints or probepoints anywhere in the system and user space. Each probepoint has an associated set of probe instructions that are interpreted when the probe fires. These instructions allow memory and CPU registers to be examined and altered using conditional logic. When the probe command terminates, prior to returning to the probed code, a syslog record may be optionally generated.
The OMNI printer driver provides support for over 450 printers using the Ghostscript framework. In addition, it provides a model for dynamically loading printer drivers and creating new devices by editing device description files, and simplifies new printer driver development by allowing for the subclassing of previous device features.
The Enterprise Volume Management System (EVMS) Project has the goal of providing unparalleled flexibility and extensibility in managing storage. It represents a new approach to logical volume management, as the architecture introduces a plug-in model that allows for easy expansion or customization of various levels of volume management.
SBLIM (pronounced "sublime"), the Standards Based Linux Instrumentation for Manageability is an IBM Open Source project, intended to enhance the manageability of GNU/Linux systems. It does so by enabling GNU/Linux for WBEM, Web Based Enterprise Management, a set of standards defined by the DMTF and fostered by the WBEMsource initiative.
