Lsyncd watches a local directory tree's event monitor interface (inotify). It aggregates and combines events for a few seconds and then spawns one (or more) process(es) to synchronize the changes. By default, this synchronization is done with rsync. Lsyncd is thus a lightweight live mirror solution that is comparatively easy to install. It does not require new filesystems or block devices and does not hamper local filesystem performance.
wget can be used to download a Web site, with all pages referenced by the originating one, but it saves all pages in a directory tree (or single directory). The intention of web-archive-creator is to join the power of wget and the usability of the .war format, which Konqueror is able to browse. The Web ARrchive format is simply a tarred and gzipped file containing the Web files. The web-archive-creator script performs the download with wget and writes an index.html linking to the starting pages/URLs wget fetched.
vm-image-manage is a simple script for managing a small cluster of Xen virtual machines on a single host with one command. It's optimized for repeatedly restarting a virtual machine slot with an image. It features templates for Xen configuration files. It speeds the import and export of Xen images to tgz archives. It speeds frequent redeployment with rsync. It manages mounting domains when the VM is down and un-mounting when the domain is launched.
TRIXER creates catalogs of transparent file indexes. A transparent file index is an exact mirror of a directory, except that each of its file is void, thus "taking no space", while apparently having the same size of its indexed counterpart so as to describe it fully. This is accomplished by combining sparse files support with fusecompress on-the-fly compression technology. This is useful for many purposes, e.g. creating a catalog of your CD/DVD-ROM library to browse its contents without having to physically access it. The advantage of this software is that a TRIXER catalog is a plain mountable ext2 filesystem, allowing enhanced interoperability with the huge lot of available software to handle the catalog in a number of ways.
apub is a tool to simplify uploading documents of a site to remote servers. Simply create an XML configuration file containing one or more site definitions, with the local and remote document root. After that, you can upload any file in any of your document roots with one simple command.
SCST is a mid-level SCSI target subsystem for Linux. This subsystem allows a remote host to access local storage devices through the SCSI protocol. SCST supports multiple network storage protocols, including iSCSI, SRP, and FCoE, and also supports Qlogic 22xx/23xx SCSI HBAs. Strong points of SCST are its stability, maturity, high performance, and low latency. See also the iSCSI-SCST, SRPT and scstqla2x00t projects, as well as open-fcoe.org.
SRPT is a SCSI RDMA Protocol (SRP) target implementation on top of SCST, a mid-level SCSI target subsystem for the Linux kernel. This software makes it possible for remote systems to access local storage over an InfiniBand network. This storage protocol target implementation offers a higher bandwidth and a lower latency than any other storage protocol target implementation available for Linux.
