- Createusers adds users in bulk. It also sets up new users' home directories for personal Web space with Apache. The companion program, removeusers, eliminates users from the system. The latest release includes a graphical user interface, based on Tcl/tk.
- ryptsetup is utility used to conveniently setup disk encryption based on dm-crypt kernel module, including plain dm-crypt volumes, LUKS volumes, loop-AES and TrueCrypt compatible format. Cryptsetup is backwards compatible with the on-disk format of cryptoloop, but also supports more secure formats. This package includes support for automatically configuring encrypted devices at boot time via the config file /etc/crypttab. Additional features are cryptoroot support through initramfs-tools and several supported ways to read a passphrase or key.
- Current is a server implementation for Red Hat's up2date tools. It's designed for small to medium departments to be able to set up and run their own up2date server, feeding new applications and security patches to workstations/servers. The program is specifically intended for the experienced sysadmin with many machines to deal with.
- 'daemon' turns other processes into daemons. Many tedious tasks are required to set up a daemon process; 'daemon' performs these tasks for other processes. This is useful for writing daemons in languages other than C, C++, or Perl (e.g. sh, Java). If you want to write daemons in languages that can link against C functions (e.g. C, C++), see libslack, which contains the core functionality of daemon.
- DataStatix is a free software for GNU/Linux and Windows useful to manage data of every kind (although it has been written to manage biomedical data), to create descriptive statistics and graphs and to export items easily to R environment or to other statistic softwares. In order to handle properly big amount of data and many concurrent users, DataStatix works with MySql database and it has been developed and tested with MySql community edition 5.5. Some features of the software are: users management (create, delete, modify password) within the software; different users levels of data access (administrator, default, read only); user defined templates (models) of data, to create new databases easily; importation and esportation of data in CSV format (used also by Calc and Excel); updating of existing data from a CSV file created with DataStatix; descriptive statistics from every data (some more kind of statistics to come); graphs from every data.
- DBToy is a FUSE-based filesystem for GNU/Linux that lets you browse the contents of a relational database through a set of directories and XML files. Additional formats can be obtained through XSL stylesheets.
- 'DebSync' helps synchronize Debian GNU/Linux machines with respect to the list of packages installed. It retrieves the list of installed packages from a master host, and then installs or removes packages on other hosts to match the master's package list. It works over either ssh (default) or rsh, and does not have to be installed on any of the machines you want to manage.
- Most Debian application packages depend on other packages, containing libraries or other utilities. When the application package is removed, the dependencies are still on the system. Debfoster can detect such "orphaned" dependencies (unlike apt and dpkg) and will clean them up. It can be used as a front-end to apt or standalone.
- Delta Reporting
- CFEngine promises and classes are stored in a central database and made available for advanced searches and reports via the command line and a modern Web interface.
- 'Depot' is a software management tool kfor maintaining third party and locally developed software in large heterogeneous computing environments. It integrates separately maintained software packages ('collections') into a common directory hierarchy (the 'software environment') consisting of a union of all the collections. A set of configuration options manages interactions and intersections between collections in the environment. Custom environments and complete test environments can be created for machines or sets of machines. Collections with problems can be removed or replaced with previous versions. Individual collections or files can be moved from remote to local filesystems.
