BackupPC is a high-performance, enterprise-grade backup system for backing up Linux, WinXX PCs, Macs and laptops to a server's disk. Features include clever pooling of identical files, no client-side software, and a powerful Apache/CGI user interface.
The Sleuth Kit is a C++ library and collection of open source file system forensics tools that allow you to, among other things, view allocated and deleted data from NTFS, FAT, FFS, EXT2, Ext3, HFS+, and ISO9660 images.
AVFS is a system, which enables all programs to look inside gzip, tar, zip, etc. files or view remote (ftp, http, dav, etc.) files, without recompiling the programs.
Fault tolerant, POSIX-compliant, network distributed filesystem
MooseFS (MFS) is a fault tolerant, highly performing, scaling-out, network distributed file system. It spreads data over several physical servers which are visible to the user as one resource. For standard file operations MooseFS mounted with FUSE acts as other Unix-alike file systems: * A hierarchical structure (directory tree) * Stores POSIX file attributes (permissions, last access and modification times) Supports special files (block and character devices, pipes and sockets) * Symbolic links (file names pointing to target files, not necessarily on MooseFS) and hard links (different names of files which refer to the same data on MooseFS) * Access to the file system can be limited based on IP address and/or password MooseFS on GitHub: https://github.com/moosefs/moosefs Source code, packages repo: https://moosefs.com/download.html Documentation: https://moosefs.com/documentation.html Recent changes: https://moosefs.com/documentation/changes-in-moosefs-3-0.html
UNFS3 is a user-space NFSv3 server
UNFS3 is a user-space implementation of the NFSv3 server specification. It provides a unified mountd and nfsd program and so far runs under Linux, NetBSD, and Solaris.
Sort files and pack them into partitions
Fpart is a tool that helps you sort file trees and pack them into bags (called "partitions"). It is developped in C and available under the BSD license. It splits a list of directories and file trees into a certain number of partitions, trying to produce partitions with the same size and number of files. It can also produce partitions with a given number of files or a limited size. Once generated, partitions are either printed as file lists to stdout (default) or to files. Those lists can then be used by third party programs. Fpart also includes a live mode, which allows it to crawl very large filesystems and produce partitions in live. Hooks are available to act on those partitions (e.g. immediatly start a transfer using rsync(1)) without having to wait for the filesystem traversal job to be finished. Used this way, fpart can be seen as a powerful data migration tool.
A tool that allows mounting NTFS partitions read-only under Solaris as well as a tool that allows reading Solaris partitions from Windows (mounting Solaris partitions read-only under Windows is planned for the future.)
A library and commands for cyclic logfiles. A cyclic log has a fixed size upon creation and pointers that refer to the start and end positions within that fixed size.They are useful for recording server output without losing the most recent data.
Python FAM provides a Python module to use the File Alteration Monitor (http://oss.sgi.com/projects/fam) in Python.
Namei will follow a pathname until a terminal point is found (e.g., a file, directory, char device, etc.). If namei finds a symbolic link, it shows the link and starts following it, indenting the output to show the context.
BOOYA is a multi-platform first response tool and baseline tool for collection of volatile data.
This is a distributed, hierarchical, networked, replicated and disconnected file system.
The ElHam project is a testing infrastructure to both stress file system calls and check for consistency of stored data. Distributed file systems, like NFS and CIFS, can be tested by the heavy use of locking, allowing multi-protocol testing.
EBML, or Extensible Binary Meta-Language, is a simple XML like binary language for describing data in structured style. EBML was originally designed for use in the Matroska project, but the developers saw that EBML was very flexible and extensible.
File Balm is a convenience tool to manager different file system.
File Balm is a convenience tool to manager different file system(based on Eclipse RCP). It supports mass rename, files/directories compare, advanced search/replace, directories synchronization, cross-platform, etc. Currently, this project is under developing, any idea is welcome.
Idas (I Don't Accept Seconds) is a high-performance duplicate file detector. Idas plugs into your favorite Unix filter and can tell you exactly which files have been seen before, regardless of whether or not it appears with the same filename.
Target of this project is to make a driver, that will provide JFFS2 support for OpenSolaris.
This project provides a user-level command to edit NFSv4 Access Control Lists (ACLs). The command allows users to display and change NFSv4 ACLs from clients that do not have complete NFSv4 ACL support.
Nanotools is a set of Unix style tools and libraries used for helping system's administrators to manage several servers with several operating systems (IBM/Aix, SUN/OS, GNU/Linux). Nanotools is oriented for running in a production environement.
OpenTMS is a full-function tape management system, similar to the tape management functionality long supported on mainframe computers. It provides commands and an API for storing and retrieving files / data objects to tape volumes in a tape library.
Sowhat is a global dependency analyzer for UNIX and Linux systems. It allows a user to determine the complete list of files that reference a given file or filesystem tree via dynamic library bindings, symlinks, hard links, or other reference mechanisms.
TYFany (pronounced Tiffany) allows you to take your files along with their hierarchy on a portable storage media (like USB) to be accessed on the run. Any changes in the hierarchy on the portable media can be docked with the base hierarchy.
Place filesystems into userland for greater flexibility.
Fast, configurable installer for openafs servers and clients.
CPSM is a CORBA based performance and system management framework. It is based on the MICO CORBA ORB.
