Epoptes – Epoptes (Επόπτης - a Greek word for overseer) is an open source computer lab management and monitoring tool. It allows for screen broadcasting and monitoring, remote command execution, message sending, imposing restrictions like screen locking or sound muting the clients and much more! It can be installed in Ubuntu, Debian and openSUSE based labs that may contain any combination of the following: LTSP servers, thin and fat clients, non LTSP servers, standalone workstations, NX or XDMCP clients etc. Patches for other distros are welcome.
bcache – Bcache is a Linux kernel block layer cache. It allows one or more fast disk drives such as flash-based solid state drives (SSDs) to act as a cache for one or more slower hard disk drives. Hard drives are cheap and big, SSDs are fast but small and expensive. Wouldn't it be nice if you could transparently get the advantages of both? With Bcache, you can have your cake and eat it too. Bcache patches for the Linux kernel allow one to use SSDs to cache other block devices. It's analogous to L2Arc for ZFS, but Bcache also does writeback caching (besides just write through caching), and it's filesystem agnostic. It's designed to be switched on with a minimum of effort, and to work well without configuration on any setup. By default it won't cache sequential IO, just the random reads and writes that SSDs excel at. It's meant to be suitable for desktops, servers, high end storage arrays, and perhaps even embedded.

wg/wrk · GitHub – wrk is a modern HTTP benchmarking tool capable of generating significant load when run on a single multi-core CPU. It combines a multithreaded design with scalable event notification systems such as epoll and kqueue. [ via http://onethingwell.org/post/56882294128/wrk ]
Automate and manage systems installation with Cobbler – Cobbler simplifies system provisioning by centralizing the tasks that are involved in setting up and administering an installation server. This article discusses some of Cobbler's features, how to install it, and how to create a configuration suitable for automatically installing multiple client machines.
Cobbler – Linux install and update server – Cobbler is a Linux installation server that allows for rapid setup of network installation environments. It glues together and automates many associated Linux tasks so you do not have to hop between many various commands and applications when deploying new systems, and, in some cases, changing existing ones. Cobbler can help with provisioning, managing DNS and DHCP, package updates, power management, configuration management orchestration, and much more. (And you can integrate with chef or puppet)
Redhat I/O Scheduler Configuration in a Virtual Machine. – FATMIN – [...] However, because of the fact that ESX is its own built in elevator, the Linux kernel's elevator is not needed, and in fact can hurt disk performance. So its best to disable the elevator inside your linux VMs [...] Da controllare comunque dovrebbe andare anche su altre distro
RDP with NLA from Linux – Is there a way to connect to a Windows 2008 Remote Desktop Services with NLA from Linux? Yes! FreeRDP is a fork of Rdesktop. Rdesktop seems to have stopped developement, so a fork is very welcome. NLA is still not in the main release, but it isn't hard to check out a copy from GIT and compile the latest source yourself.

Backup automatizzato dei database su SQL Express – SQL Server Express viene distribuito senza SQL Agent, quindi non è possibile schedulare internamente a SQL Server processi automatizzati, come ad esempio il backup. E’ però possibile aggirare questo ostacolo creando uno script ad-hoc, che si occupi dei vari job che vogliamo eseguire.

Linux Malware Detect | R-fx Networks – Linux Malware Detect (LMD) is a malware scanner for Linux released under the GNU GPLv2 license, that is designed around the threats faced in shared hosted environments. It uses threat data from network edge intrusion detection systems to extract malware that is actively being used in attacks and generates signatures for detection. In addition, threat data is also derived from user submissions with the LMD checkout feature and from malware community resources. The signatures that LMD uses are MD5 file hashes and HEX pattern matches, they are also easily exported to any number of detection tools such as ClamAV.
