*OBSOLETE* The project has moved to [GitHub](https://github.com/ipmitool/ipmitool). IPMItool provides a simple command-line interface to IPMI-enabled devices through an IPMIv1.5 or IPMIv2.0 LAN interface or Linux/Solaris kernel driver.
Manage and interpret IPMI systems with common a software tool
ipmiutil is an easy to use set of IPMI server management utilities. It can get/set sensor readings & thresholds, automate SEL management, do SOL console, etc. Supports Linux, Windows, BSD, Solaris, MacOSX. The only IPMI project tool that runs natively on Windows. See ipmiutil.sf.net for rpms, etc. (formerly called panicsel). It can run driverless in Linux for use on boot media or embedded environments.
Identify sizes of memory modules installed on most UNIX-based systems
Identify sizes of memory modules installed on a Solaris, Linux, FreeBSD or HP-UX workstation or server. memconf reports the size of each SIMM/DIMM memory module installed in a system. It also reports the system type and any empty memory sockets. In verbose mode, it also reports the following information if available: - banner name, model and CPU/system frequencies - address range and bank numbers for each module

Containment Domains are a framework for computational resiliency
CDs can be thought of as a mechanism to support fine-grained, hierarchical, application-directed, uncoordinated checkpoint and restore. Containment Domains (CDs) were created to allow an application to recover in the face of various types of component failures, including hard (e.g. persistent) and soft (e.g. transient) hardware failures, transient software failures, and complete node failures.
The NEO Project uses the NEO-c (Network Exchange Operation for Charity) platform to participate in various computing challenges and projects, and donates any winnings to the charities specified by its users.
VTracer is a Verilog Testbench developer aid. Contains well documented Verilog-Perl co-simulation environment (TCP sockets based), structural Verilog parser, demo Testbenches.
