mkpwd is a password generating program. It is designed to satisfy a scalable range of security demands. Its standard behavior is to generate one password consisting of any of all printable ASCII characters (32-128) with a length between 6 and 10. You can modify the way passwords are generated via command-line switches. You can specify a length range, the characters used, and even let mkpwd generate passwords that are somewhat readable and therefore easier to remember (and easier to crack as well).
Mohawk is the next-generation, evolutionary leap from TkApache. It is a full-blown front-end GUI for the Apache Web server for configuration, tuning, performance monitoring, and more. Completely re- written in C, using GTK+/GNOME rather than Perl/Tk, Mohawk aims to be faster and more robust than TkApache.
mon is a tool for monitoring the availability of services and sending alerts on prescribed events. Services are defined as anything tested by a "monitor" program, which can be something as simple as pinging a system, or as complex as analyzing the results of an application-level transaction. Alerts are actions such as sending email, making submissions to ticketing systems, or triggering resource fail-over in a high-availability cluster.
Monit is a utility for managing and monitoring processes, programs, files, directories, and devices on a Unix system. It conducts automatic maintenance and repair and can execute meaningful causal actions in error situations. It can be used to monitor files, directories, and devices for changes, such as timestamps changes, checksum changes, or size changes. It is controlled via an easy to configure control file based on a free-format, token-oriented syntax. It logs to syslog or to its own log file and notifies users about error conditions via customizable alert messages. It can perform various TCP/IP network checks, protocol checks, and can utilize SSL for such checks. It provides an HTTP(S) interface for access.
Moodss is a modular monitoring application, which supports operating systems (Linux, UNIX, Windows, etc.), databases (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, DB2, ODBC, etc.), networking (SNMP, Apache, etc.), and any device or process for which a module can be developed (in Tcl, Python, Perl, Java, and C). An intuitive GUI with full drag'n'drop support allows the construction of dashboards with graphs, pie charts, etc., while the thresholds functionality includes emails and user defined scripts. Monitored data can be archived in a SQL database by both the GUI and the companion daemon, so that complete history over time can be made available from Web pages or common spreadsheet software. It can even be used for future behavior prediction or capacity planning, from the included predictor tool, based on powerful statistical methods and artificial neural networks.
muser lists processes which have a given directory (or cwd if not specified) as a parent of their current working directory (thus making it impossible to unmount that directory if it is a mount point). This script has overlapping functionality with the fuser program from the psmisc package, but has the advantage that it works on SMB mounts. Additionally, it provides a color, formatted listing of process IDs, executable names, current working directories, and the command lines used to run the programs. It works with varying-sized /proc/*/cwd fields.
Mrsh is a tool that uses pipes to allow a system administrator to issue a command on many systems at the same time. The user can select any remote shell command they wish. This tool was designed out of necessity. Mrsh is known to compile flawlessly under RedHat Linux, and Solaris 2.5 and 2.6.
