netcf is a library and command line tool for configuring networking on Linux machines in a platform-independent way, using the platforms native configuration mechanisms. Supported are all the various ways in which physical interfaces, bridges, bonds, and VLANs can be combined. The configuration of a network connection is described in an XML format that emphasizes the logical relationship between the interfaces involved, e.g. a bridge connection describes the bridge interface itself and all the interfaces initially enslaved to it. Interoperability with existing network configuration tools is guaranteed since netcf relies only on native network configuration files, both for reading and writing them. Modifying network configuration with netcf has exactly the same effect as modifying the native configuration files directly, and netcf and other tools can be used interchangeably.
Netomata Config Generator (NCG) creates complete, ready-to-install configuration files for network devices and services from a common lightweight model of a network. Because these configuration files are generated programmatically and generated from a shared model, they are more likely to be consistent and complete, making a network more reliable, easier to troubleshoot, and easier to expand in both size and functionality. The inputs to NCG are a model describing the network and templates for the configuration files of the various devices (routers, switches, load balancers, firewalls, etc.) and services (SNMP, DNS, DHCP, etc.). From these inputs, NCG produces complete, consistent, ready-to-install configuration files for those devices and services.
PureCM is an integrated project management, task tracking and version control tool. Based on the concept of changesets that represent tasks, it provides developers with an easy to use and highly transparent GUI to improve teamwork. The Professional edition includes all features, but the Standard edition only includes the version control core, offering a lightweight solution for users looking for a best-of-breed configuration management tool. PureCM outperforms most other SCM tools, uses a reliable SQLite database, and is scalable to thousands of concurrent developers. The server, GUI, command line, and Web clients runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OS, and Windows.
SPM (formerly known as SPAM) is a set of tools that help manage change in an AIX environment. It uses a client-server architecture and is focused on five functional areas: collection of configuration, reporting configuration changes, comparing configurations, extracting configuration, and searching for configuration changes. Each of these functional areas also includes reporting and export capabilities. The collection of configuration is achieved by installing a client package on all systems being managed. The SPM Server provides a Web interface for reporting and examining configuration changes.
Ansible is a radically simple deployment, configuration, and command execution framework. It is dead simple and painless to extend. Extending Ansible does not require programming in any particular language; you can write modules as scripts or programs which return simple JSON. It’s also trivially easy to just execute useful shell commands.
Jat (Java Application Template) is a Java framework that is easy to extend. It supplies modular and flexible basic functionalities to develop Web and standalone applications. It can improve application start-up time. Jat Portal is an enhanced version of Jat. It provides several pre-configured features to build a complete Web application.
PMSVN is a server configuration management and monitoring tool. It helps keep track of administrative actions for many servers with many administrators. It allows administrators to put specific configuration files under revision control and eases the burden of having to remember to commit changes. It can synchronize and monitor the consistency of small bits of configuration that are the same or mostly the same across many servers.
Archivist is a network device configuration archiving and versioning program. It uses Subversion as its revision control system. Its multithreaded design makes it quite fast and thus suitable for operation on large networks with thousands of network devices. It supports Cisco IOS, Cisco CatOS, Juniper JUNOS, and Brocade/Foundry MLX series, but it can be easily extended to support any SSH or telnet-based network device by creating your own config download and post-processing scripts.
Lucie is a cluster installation and configuration tool. It enables parallel network installation of large numbers of nodes from one single administration server. The Lucie installer performs HDD partitioning and installations of the Linux kernel and required software packages. The Lucie configurator then generates system and software configurations. Lucie is designed to be scalable and efficient, so a complete Linux cluster can be built from scratch in a short amount of time. Moreover, the whole installation process is designed to be fully automated.
