Download No website 06 Sep 02:40 Pcompress 2.4


Pcompress is an archiver that can do compression/decompression and deduplication in parallel by splitting input data into chunks. It has a modular structure and includes support for multiple algorithms like LZMA, Bzip2, PPMD, LZ4, etc., with KECCAK/BLAKE2/SHA-256/512 chunk checksums. SSE optimizations for the bundled LZMA are included. It also implements chunk-level Content-Aware Deduplication and Delta Compression features based on a Polynomial Fingerprinting scheme. It has low metadata overhead and overlaps I/O and compression to achieve maximum parallelism. It has AES encryption capability and uses Scrypt from Tarsnap to generate per-session unique keys from passwords. It can work in pipe mode, reading from stdin and writing to stdout. It also provides some adaptive compression modes in which a suitable algorithm is chosen per chunk based on heuristics.

Release Notes: This release fixes several issues, including some corner case crashes and a couple of buffer overflows. Data Deduplication can now be done using blocks as small as 2KB, providing a much higher dedupe ratio than virtually any other deduplication software. Similarity based deduplication performance has been improved. Free memory detection accuracy has also been improved.

No download No website 06 Sep 02:39 JunkieTheSniffer 2.6.0


Junkie is a real-time packet sniffer and analyzer. It is modular enough to accomplish many different tasks. It can be a helpful companion to the modern network administrator and analyst. Compared to previously available tools, junkie lies in between tcpdump and wireshark. Unlike tcpdump, its purpose is to parse protocols of any depth; unlike wireshark, though, it is designed to analyze traffic in real-time and so cannot parse traffic as exhaustively as wireshark does. In addition, its design encompasses extendability and speed. It has a plug-in system and high-level extension language that eases the development and combination of new functionalities; threaded packet capture and analysis for handling of high bandwidth networks; and a modular architecture to ease the addition of any protocol layer. It is based on libpcap for portability, and well-tested on professional settings.

Release Notes: A new Delayogram plugin to visualize ack delays. A new -f option to set the next capture filters from the command line. Support for Eth QinQ(inQ...), DHCP protocol. Autodiscovery of IRC, jabber, VNC, CIFS, PCanywhere, citrix, telnet, BGP, IMAP, POP, and NTP.

Release Notes: This version improves the search and bookmarks, and adds a help system for terminals and information on the edited file. It also fixes problems with shortcuts.

No download Website 06 Sep 02:36 Keepalived for Linux 1.2.8


Keepalived for LVS aims to add a strong and robust keepalive facility to the Linux Virtual Server project. This project is written in C with multilayer TCP/IP stack checks. It implements a framework based on three family checks: Layer3, Layer4, and Layer5. This framework gives the daemon the ability of checking a LVS server pool states.When one of the servers in the LVS server pool is down, keepalived informs the Linux kernel via a setsockopt call to remove this server entry from the LVS topology. In addition, it implements a VRRPv2 stack to handle director failover.

Release Notes: This release adds support for VRRP unicast. It adds support for VRRP IPv6 routes. It adds support for LVS One-Packet Scheduling. It adds a CLI core framework. There are miscellaneous bugfixes, typo corrections, and cosmetic changes.
