  • sebsauvage/rss-bridge – The RSS feed for websites missing it
  • debsecan – The debsecan program evaluates the security status of a host running the Debian operation system. It reports missing security updates and known vulnerabilities in the programs which are installed on the host. debsecan accesses the dpkg database and obtains a list of installed packages and their versions. This list is then evaluated against a feed of vulnerability information which ultimately comes from a database maintained by Debian's Testing Security Team . Various output formats are supported, including incremental reporting via email. Beginning with version 0.2, debsecan includes a script called debsecan-create-cron, which allows you to create a cron job which periodically sends you mail (once per day) when the security status of the system changes.
  • Barriers, Caches, Filesystems | monolight – With the recent proliferation of ext4 as the new “default” Linux filesystem there’s been much talk of write barrier support. The flurry of post-2.6.18 barrier related development in most storage subsystems has left some novice users and administrators perplexed. I hope I can clear it up a bit with this primer/refresher.
  • SMTP, testing via Telnet – FreeBSDwiki – When troubleshooting problems with SMTP service – your own, or others – it is frequently very helpful to be able to "speak" to the SMTP server directly, rather than going through a mail client which won't necessarily tell you exactly what the SMTP server is saying. You can easily do this with the telnet client. Note that many ISPs do not allow outbound connections on port 25 to any SMTP server but their own – if you get timeouts when trying to connect to port 25, you should try port 587, which is the standard ESMTP port. (Port 587 connections normally require SMTP AUTH, which is covered below.)

  • muquit/mailsend – mailsend is a simple command line program to send mail via SMTP protocol. I needed to send a piece of alert mail from a program in a networked Windows machine, but could not find a simple program like this installed. So I wrote one. You might find it useful in some situations. The program does not use any config file and I plan to keep it that way.
  • visit1985/mdp – A command-line based markdown presentation tool.
  • Teampass · A Collaborative Passwords Manager – TeamPass is a Passwords Manager dedicated for managing passwords in a collaborative way on any server Apache, MySQL and PHP. It is especially designed to provide passwords access security for allowed people. This makes TeamPass really useful in a Business/Enterprise environment and will provide to IT or Team Manager a powerful and easy tool for customizing passwords access depending on the user’s role.

  • tune apache peformance using mpm prefork module – There could be many reasons why your website performance is poor, one of them can possibly be that Apache is not coping with the load. Below you’ll find ready to consume configuration to make Apache performance better using the Apache MPM prefork module.
  • check-httpd-limits – Check Apache Httpd MPM Config Limits – Google Project Hosting – compares the size of running Apache httpd processes, the configured prefork / worker / event MPM limits, and the server's available memory. The script exits with a warning (or error message) if the configured limits exceed the server's available memory. The script does not use any 3rd-party perl modules, unless the –save/days/max command-line options are used, in which case you will need to have the DBD::SQLite module installed. It should work on any UNIX server that provides /proc/meminfo, /proc/*/exe, /proc/*/stat, and /proc/*/statm files. You will probably have to run the script as root for it to read the /proc/*/exe symbolic links.
  • Apache 2.2: Multiple authentication providers « weblog – Since Apache 2.2 multiple authentication providers are now supported. This is nice, since now you can have an LDAP authentication provider with an htpasswd fallback authentication mechanism.
  • lozzd/Nagdash – What is Nagdash? Nagdash is the long awaited replacement of Naglite2. Written in PHP, it uses the Nagios-api, PHP and a sprinkling of jQuery and Bootstrap to provide a full screen, clean Nagios experience which is suitable either for a Dashboard/NOC screen, or simply a simple view to replace the Nagios UI.
  • Naemon Monitoring Suite – Naemon is the new monitoring suite that aims to be faster and more stable, while giving you a clearer view of the state of your network.

This way I get to play the truly dumb user (not much of a stretch, I know), which is kinda fun too.
