Just a quick announcement.
The PNI is creating a small utility toolbox repository using Google code. We'll be loading in any of our little helper scripts and functions from our various projects in an out of band manner. They won't have much context, and some won't work without some very specific configuration choices but they could prove useful and tweak-able for anyone looking to use them in your own environments. For now I've added a copy of the 'svn_verify.py' script that I wrote about in a previous post and two utility files for nagios, a Python script for checking IPMI interfaces using 'freeipmi' and a small scp/ssh script that we use to propagate updates from our monitoring head out to the gatherers and tell them to reload after they have been updated.
The code project and repository can be found here.
The Blue Pill:
Hey, they may be useful. We will be trying to add more, this repository is as much for our own reference / security as it is to let others take a look at how we do some of our arcane little tricks here and there.
The Red Pill:
They aren't that well documented and may require some very specific configs (ssh key authentication for instance) to work correctly.
