Lynis is an auditing and hardening tool for Unix derivatives like Linux/BSD/Solaris. It scans systems to detect software and security issues. Besides security-related information, it will also scan for general system information, installed packages, and possible configuration mistakes. The software is aimed at assisting automated auditing, software patch management, and vulnerability and malware scanning of Unix-based systems.
jdiagnostics is a library of routines for inspecting the state of a JVM and building a support bundle. It makes it easy to diagnose issues with classpaths, resources, serviceloaders, versioning, XML parsers, and so forth. It has no dependencies, and is an essential library to build into any infrastructure application.
Epikscan is a cluster aware, diagnostic script that runs basic health checks and gathers detailed, addressable system information from an RHEL, Scientific Linux, Oracle/OVM2, or CentOS 4, 5, or 6 system. A single archive is created for each host, containing the scan data along with linking information that can be merged with scans from other nodes to produce a cluster oriented report. HTML, text, XML, and SQLite3 database reports can be optionally generated to support both manual and automated fault analysis. The scan and merge process attempts to heuristically identify possible problems with the node or cluster configuration and highlights them in red to speed up the review and resolution process.
FTPL (FakeTime Preload Library, aka libfaketime) intercepts various system library calls and tricks programs of your choice into seeing a faked system time without having to change the time system-wide. This can be used for running legacy software with Y2K bugs, testing software for year-2038 compliance, debugging time-related issues such as expired SSL certificates, and using software that ceases to run outside a certain time frame. The faked time can be specified either absolutely or relative to the real current time, and optionally also affects file timestamps. The faked clock continues to run, but can optionally be frozen, slowed down, or made faster. A wrapper script "faketime" simplifies the usage, similar to tools such as fakechroot.
Nagstamon is a Nagios status monitor with a UI that resides in the systray or as a floating statusbar on your desktop. It informs you in realtime about the status of your Nagios, Icinga, Opsview, Ninja, Check_MK/Multisite, Centreon, or Thruk-monitored network. It alerts you with sound and visual notification. Failed hosts and services are easy to connect with by SSH, RDP, and VNC. Custom actions can be run on certain events. It works best with GNOME, but also with KDE, Mac OS X, and Windows.
Ultimate Boot CD is a collection of Freeware and Free Software tools for PC diagnostics and maintenance. Included are tools for BIOS editing, CPU and memory testing, boot management, data recovery, peripheral and system inventory, and hard drive partitioning, cloning, wiping, diagnostics, and low-level editing. All tools boot and run from the CD.
check_openmanage is a plugin for Nagios that checks the hardware health of Dell servers running OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA). The plugin can be used remotely with SNMP or locally with NRPE, check_by_ssh, or similar. It checks the health of the storage subsystem, power supplies, memory modules, temperature probes, etc., and gives an alert if any of the components are faulty or operate outside normal parameters.
