||A practical part of my diploma thesis ``SMIng - A
new Language for the Definition of Management Information''
has been the developement of this software library to access
MIB module information, along with some tools to check, dump and
compile MIB modules.
||In good old x-load tradition, I hacked this piece to monitor a pair
of SNMP variables, e.g. inOctets and outOctets of a dialup interface.
This time it's a more fashioned gnome panel applet and I tried to do
it in a Debain convenient way.
||I contributed some patches to
xbrload, a tool to monitor system load of multiple machines
via (broadcast) RPC. Furthermore, I applied some code to retrieve
netload from ttt probes, but this is not (yet?) contributed to Stefan.
||At home, I use this small tool to monitor
and control the state and troughput of my ISDN dialup
connection. It displays throughput as a stripchart, uses colors
to identify the line state (offline, dial-on-demand, calling, online)
and executes external programs upon clicks on the chart to call or
go offline. An older release of xisdnload is part of the i4l utils.
||I hacked an implementation of the TUNNEL-MIB (RFC 2667) for the
UCD-SNMP agent. This
is expected to get integrated into the UCD-SNMP distribution.
||I hacked a simple Tcl interface for
after I have got to know this library
FFG 1999. This piece of code has been contributed back and is
now part of Tobias' RRDtool distribution.|
TU Braunschweig where we set up a
cluster of linux workstations,
I developed a patch for the procps tools to monitor a whole cluster
of linux boxes with well known tools, like ps,
top, uptime, ...|
||During the same course, I developed a small tool to distribute a
file (actually we used it for a whole harddisk partition) via
multicast to an arbitrary number of clients really simultaneously.
This enables a reasonably
fast and scaling facility to install equally equiped linux
||Based on library originally written by Erik Schönfelder
which makes it easy to build an NFS server, I hacked a small
server that gives a filesystem interface to a remote FTP
||I applied some patches to a perl mail2news script I found
on the web. The original author is unknown to me. Later, also
other friends applied some more changes.
||Based on tcpdump/libpcap I applied some changes to get a tool
for accounting network traffic. We use this code at
escape e.V., a non-commercial
provider at Braunschweig/Wolfsburg for private people.|
||I enhanced this old software to suck news from an NNTP server to
behave more bravely like a newsreader (no NEWNEWS).
Furthermore, it can now
suck news from the server's junk group, if the server is badly
maintained and does not have the groups we wish to receive.|
||ls2idx is a small tool to generate more or less detailed plain
or HTML INDEX files of FTP archives from a usual `ls -lR' output.
||This is a very simple shell script, that however enhances a TU-BS guy's quality of life significantly. :-)
