microHOWTO: Configure Apache to use Kerberos authentication – To configure Apache to use Kerberos authentication Kerberos is an authentication protocol that supports the concept of Single Sign-On (SSO). Having authenticated once at the start of a session, users can access network services throughout a Kerberos realm without authenticating again. For this to work it is necessary to use network protocols that are Kerberos-aware. In the case of HTTP, support for Kerberos is usually provided using the SPNEGO authentication mechanism (Simple and Protected GSS-API Negotiation). This is also known as ‘integrated authentication’ or ‘negotiate authentication’. Apache does not itself support SPNEGO, but support can be added by means of the mod_auth_kerb authentication module.
How to create a bootable USB stick on OS X | Ubuntu – [...] Note: this procedure requires that you create an .img file from the .iso file you download. It will also change the filesystem that is on the USB stick to make it bootable, so backup all data before continuing [...]
thomastk/kunjumon – Kunjumon is a framework that can be used to create plugins for Nagios monitoring system, without writing any new code. The plugins thus created are robust, and, can monitor complex scenarios by querying data from multiple databases. While efforts to build such plugins would require considerable scripting work, using Kunjumon framework, a a plugin that pulls input data from databases can be implemented by defining it in XML format, and, there is no need to write any code to support it. The Kunjumon framework has been tested on all the Linux platforms, and against MySQL, Postgres, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server. However, in general, it would work with any ODBC interface configured on the Nagios host to access a data repository.

Sensu | The open source monitoring framework. – [...] Sensu is often described as the “monitoring router”. Essentially, Sensu takes the results of “check” scripts run across many systems, and if certain conditions are met; passes their information to one or more “handlers”. Checks are used, for example, to determine if a service like Apache is up or down. Checks can also be used to collect data, such as MySQL query statistics or Rails application metrics. Handlers take actions, using result information, such as sending an email, messaging a chat room, or adding a data point to a graph. There are several types of handlers, but the most common and most powerful is “pipe”, a script that receives data via standard input. Check and handler scripts can be written in any language, and the community repository continues to grow! [...]
Check_MK – Welcome to the official Homepage of the Check_MK-Project. Check_MK is a collection of extensions for the IT-Monitoring-Kernel of Nagios and together with this, and ideally also with PNP4Nagios and NagVis constitutes a complete IT-Monitoring-System. Check_MK is 100% Open-Source and is available under the terms of the GNU GPL.

Yes and no, an unique thing about glances that I’ve immediately seen is that you can configure thresholds in its configuration file and see the status of your system resources with colors that indicates if everything is fine or not, at a glance.
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.
