Involved Projects and Packages
A script that checks for the existance of an SSL certificate or creates a new self signed one.
It runs non-interactively and uses either predefined values or automatically guesses the best values.
collectd is a small daemon written in C for performance. It reads various
system statistics and updates RRD files, creating them if necessary.
Since the daemon doesn't need to startup every time it wants to update the
files it's very fast and easy on the system. Also, the statistics are very
fine grained since the files are updated every 10 seconds.
Libmemcached is a C and C++ client library to the memcached server
(http://danga.com/memcached). It has been designed to be light on
memory usage, thread safe, and provide full access to server side
The libstatgrab library provides an easy-to-use interface for accessing system
statistics and information.
Available statistics include CPU, Load, Memory, Swap, Disk I/O, and Network
I/O. It was developed to work on Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris.
The package also includes two tools: saidar provides a curses-based interface
for viewing live system statistics, and statgrab is a sysctl-like interface to
This package provides bindings for libzypp, the library for package management.
The Modules package provides for dynamic modification of a user's
environment with module files. Each module file contains the
information needed to configure the shell for an application. Once the
package is initialized, the environment can be modified dynamically on
a per-module basis using the module command that interprets module
files. Typically, module files instruct the module command to alter or
set shell environment variables, such as PATH or MANPATH. Module files
may be shared by many users on a system and users may have their own
collection to supplement or replace the shared module files. The
modules environment is common on SGI/Crays and many workstation farms.
NASM is a prototype general-purpose x86 assembler. It can currently
output several binary formats, including ELF, a.out, Win32, and OS/2.
Read the licence agreement in /usr/share/doc/packages/nasm/Licence.
nginx [engine x] is a HTTP server and IMAP/POP3 proxy server written by Igor Sysoev.
It has been running on many heavily loaded Russian sites for more than two years.
OpenHPI is an open source project created with the intent of providing
an implementation of the SA Forum's Hardware Platform Interface (HPI).
HPI provides an abstracted interface to managing computer hardware,
typically for chassis and rack based servers. HPI includes a resource
modeling; access to and control over sensor, control, watchdog, and
inventory data associated with resources; abstracted System Event Log
interfaces; hardware events and alerts; and a managed hotswap
OpenHPI provides a modular mechanism for adding new hardware and device
support easily. Many plug-ins exist in the OpenHPI source tree to
provide access to various types of hardware. This includes, but is not
limited to, IPMI based servers, Blade Center, and machines that export
data via sysfs. For up-to-date status on these components, check out
the status page.
OpenIPMI is an effort to create a full-function IPMI system to allow
full access to all IPMI information on a server and to abstract it to a
level that makes it easy to use.
OpenIPMI consists of two main parts: a device driver that is included
in the Linux kernel and a user-level library that provides a
higher-level abstraction of IPMI and generic services that can be used
on any operation system. This package contains the user-level library
part. This OpenIPMI library also includes the ipmicmd program, a small
program that lets you inject and receive messages.
This package provides a YaST plugin for wsmand, the WS Management
Daemon. The plugin makes YaST (the ycp layer api) remotely accessible.
Combined with rwsman (the openwsman client bindings for Ruby) and Ruby
On Rails, one can e.g. easily create a Web interface for YaST.
