  • open.NASA – a collaborative approach to open, direct, and transparent communication about your space agency – is a collaborative platform for the open government community to share success stories and projects they are working on. The content on this site is written by NASA employees and contractors across the agency. We are excited to highlight the ways that transparency, participation, and collaboration are being embraced by NASA policy, technology, and culture – and the amazing future that becomes possible because of that commitment.
  • VirtuaLinux – Official WebSite – VirtuaLinux is a Linux meta-distribution that allows the creation, deployment and administration of virtualized clusters with no single point of failure. VirtuaLinux architecture supports disk-less configurations and provides an efficient, iSCSI based abstraction of the SAN.

    funny and very instructive

  • VMware Monitoring Appliance with Nagios, NagVis, PNP4Nagios, Smokeping, Cacti and OpenNMS – Monitoring in just a few minutes! This VMware appliance based on Ubuntu Server Edition 10.10 64-bit contains the most important monitoring software packages, installed and ready-to-run:

    Nagios 3.2.3
    NagVis 1.5.5
    PNP4Nagios 0.6.7
    MK Livestatus 1.1.8
    Cacti/Spine 0.8.7g
    Smokeping 2.3.6
    OpenNMS 1.8.5

    You can start immediately. It is especially suitable for comparing these different monitoring solutions. Note that OpenNMS is written in Java and produces a high load on the system. Starting and Stopping OpenNMS takes a long time (several minutes!).

  • Squid Block – DNSBL Redirector for the Squid Proxy – dnsbl_redir is a shamelessly derived redirector based on the asqredir redirector written by Thomas Zippo < thomas at zippo dot ch >. Thanks!
    Its been rewritten to use a DNSBL list (RHS type) to check for and block sites listed in the DNSBL. It will redirect your users to the page/site listed in the top of the dnsbl_redir.h file.

    dnsbl_redir is written in C. It consists of one small source file and a small(er) .h file. It has been tested and runs on the current Squid versions. It performs very well on Linux (RedHat/Fedora), BSD and technically should compile and run on any gnu/linux.
