Linux Test Project is a joint project started by SGI, OSDL, and Bull developed and maintained by IBM, Cisco, Fujitsu, SUSE, Red Hat, Oracle, and others. The project goal is to deliver tests that validate the reliability, robustness, and stability of Linux. Currently it contains more than 1000 syscall test cases, I/O and AIO stress test cases, a few Linux kernel device drivers, a well maintained fork of the Open POSIX Testsuite, a real-time test suite, and more.
Check_MK is a complex addon for Nagios/Icinga and consists of three subprojects. The check and inventory system Check_MK is a general purpose Nagios plugin for retrieving data. It adopts a new approach for collecting data and obsoletes NRPE, check_by_ssh, NSClient, and check_snmp. It features a significant reduction of CPU use on the Nagios host and automatic inventory of items to be checked, and is especially useful with larger Nagios installations. "MK Livestatus" gives immediate and fast access to live and historic Nagios status data. It's a supported backend for many addons including NagVis, NagiosBP, and Thruk. "Check_MK Multisite" is a feature complete replacement for the Nagios GUI, and uses MK Livestatus as a backend. It is very fast, and supports efficient distributed monitoring.
encsh is a simple tool that encrypts a shell or other interpreted script and puts a wrapper around it. The end result is an executable which, when given the correct password, will be decrypted and run through a pipe, effectively keeping the plain text of the script away from the disk.
Consh is a set of programs that can turn one or more UNIX hosts on a trusted LAN into a singular Bourne shell multi-computer on which shell scripts are run concurrently. The service abstracts hosts into what appears to be shell process with a fixed number of threads or workers, to which work may be assigned and results received concurrently. It includes utilities that assign commands to workers in parallel and a command that initiates distributed barriers between workers for synchronization purposes. Environment variables can be set on a per-host basis to implement locking mechanisms like semaphores or ticket algorithms. Daemons can delegate work to one another as needed.
selector is a command line utility for dynamic string selection. As you type a list of substrings separated by ";" or a regexp, the display is updated in real time to show only the matching lines. The main usage of selector is as an efficient search in the shell command history. With the correct option, it will inject the selected line into the terminal input buffer, allowing the user to edit the line and execute it as a standard command.
Bashinator is a bash shell script framework. It provides flexible and powerful message handling that lets you print to stdout, log (to syslog or a logfile), and mail messages with a single message function. Exhaustive information is included in messages to ease debugging. This information includes timestamps, message severity, source file, line numbers, and function names. A facility for tracing the function call stack is provided. Sub-command output can be logged by capturing the stdout/stderr of external commands to a dedicated temporary logfile. The framework also provides lockfile handling.
