pmu tools is a collection of tools for profile collection and performance analysis on Intel CPUs on top of Linux perf. It has a wrapper to "perf" that provides a full core event list for common Intel CPUs. This allows you to use all the Intel events, not just the builtin events of perf. Support for Intel "offcore" events on older systems that do not have support for this in the Intel. Offcore events allow you to profile the location of a memory access outside the CPU's caches. It implements a workaround for some issues with offcore events on Sandy Bridge EP (Intel Xeon E5 first generation). This is automatically enabled for the respective events, and also available as a standalone program. Some utility programs to access pci space or msrs on the command line. A utility program to program the PMU directly from user space (pmumon.py) for counting. This is mainly useful for testing and experimental purposes. A library for self profiling with Linux since Linux 3.3 (for self-profiling on older kernels, you can use simple-pmu. An example program for address profiling on Nehalem and later Intel CPUs (addr). A program to print the currently running events (event-rmap).
PYBAG implements a portable bag and is intended for fast synchronization and backup. It lets you use a portable digital storage device to carry your electronic documents similar to the way you can use a bag to carry paper documents. You can synchronize the bag with your original files easily. If a synchronization conflict occurs, it will be reported. You can specify rules for automatic conflict resolution. With PYBAG, you can backup files and synchronize any changes made to the original files with the bag. The synchronization process will only copy changed files. The program is cross-platform and independent from the OS and filesystem. You may easily synchronize files between Windows and Linux, for example. Symbolic links are supported on all systems (if the OS or filesystem does not support symlinks, then they are emulated). This program has a GUI and a command line interface.
pyrobase assembles general Python helper functions and classes that can be applied to any project. This includes some additional tasks for the Paver build tool, an improved xmlrpc2scgi module, unit test helpers, and generic base modules for various domains. All modules have unit tests, and the goal is to reach >80% coverage.
repos-tools is a set of command-line utilities to make work on your code repositories faster and easier. It lets you push, pull, build, and do other things on your repositories all at once. The supported (D)VCSes are Git, Subersion, Bazaar, and Mercurial. For GitHub users, forking, following, watching, and dealing with issues can be done from the shell.
slkbuild is a script inspired by makepkg from Arch that greatly simplifies the package building process in Slackware and derivatives. It parses an easy-to-create SLKBUILD meta-file and from that creates a conventional build script that follows all of the Slackware packaging standards and that can be run on its own. The advantage of using slkbuild is that it ensures package uniformity and allows for an easy-to-edit meta-file in the event that one might require customization or might need to update the script for new releases. It also makes the build process much quicker, since it takes care of downloading the source, untarring, gzipping man and info pages, stripping binaries, making sure that the menu entry for a graphical application is compliant, as well as a host of other things.
tsx-tools provides headers and utilities for development with TSX (HLE/RTM) hardware transactional memory development on recent Intel CPUs. It includes compat headers that provide C inline functions support for RTM and HLE in various formats for older gcc compatible compilers (before gcc 4.8). These headers are useful to enable lock elision in a lock library or existing program. It also has various TSX related utilities, including a tool that detects the presence of TSX, a TSX aware assert, and various debugging utilities.
