  • check_jvm – Nagios Exchange – JvmInspector is standalone tool + Nagios wrapper plugin (check_jvm) that dumps various properties from locally running JVMs. This information includes: * Heap & non-heap memory * Running threads * Loaded classes * Running java version, paths & arguments * On App servers only: Container server name & total active sessions (tested & supported app servers are tomcat5+ and jboss4+) JvmInspector doesn't need local or remote JMX network socket. It directly attaches to JVM's PerfData, so it MUST be started with the same USERid as the target JVM!
  • Raspberry Pi VPN Gateway – Netflix finally arrived in Germany, but guess what? It's library is heavily limited in comparision to the US one and if you like TV series as much as I do, you don't want to wait until they eventually release it year(s) later for us german users. Maybe you've heard recently of Anonabox — a small device with two ethernet ports that you can plug in front of your router and everything behind the device is routed through Tor (side note: turned out to be a scam and got pulled from Kickstarter in the end). However, it made me come up with an idea: Instead of having a Tor-box, I want a VPN-box that is connected to my PrivateInternetAccess VPN. If I'm in need of a VPN connection I just switch the WiFi network and I'm good to go. This way I can easily watch US content from Netflix as well as unblock location restricted content like YouTube, even with my iPhone or Xbox[…]
  • My Tmux Setup on – I've been using tmux as my main terminal multiplexer for about 3 years now and have refined my configuration over time to fit my daily workflow. Which is usually a mix of writing code, chef recipes, remote login into different servers and various shell tasks. This is a flexible setup that doesn't concentrate too much on doing a specific thing or replacing an IDE inside of tmux.

  • Mobile-OTP: Strong Two-Factor Authentication with Mobile Phones – Mobile One Time Passwords (Mobile-OTP)
    strong, two-factor authentication with mobile phones

    Using static passwords for authentication, as it is commonly done, has quite a few security drawbacks: passwords can be guessed, forgotten, written down and stolen, eavesdropped or deliberately being told to other people.
    A better, more secure way of authentication is the so called "two-factor" or "strong authentication" based on one time passwords. Instead of authenticating with a simple password, each user carries a device ("token") to generate passwords that are valid only one time.

  • Open Monitoring Distribution – Wiki – OMD – Welcome to OMD – the Open Monitoring Distribution. OMD implements a completely new concept of how to install, maintain and update a monitoring system built on Nagios.

    OMD avoids the tedious work of manually compiling and integrating Nagios addons while at the same time avoiding the problems of pre-packaged installations coming with your Linux distribution, which are most times outdated and provide no regular updates.

    OMD bundles Nagios together with many important addons and can easily be installed on every major Linux distribution. We provide prebuilt packages for all enterprise Linux distributions and also for some other, such as Ubuntu 11.04.
