IP Management, Process Monitoring, Log Analysis & More...
Hello IT Pro,
Each week we're updating the full list on our website here. Enjoy.
But on with this week's tools...! Here are the most interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops, and phones this week. As always, EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.
A Free Tool
phpipam is an open-source web IP address management application. Features IPv4/IPv6 address management, ICMP status updates, domain authentication (AD)/OpenLDAP authentication, per-group permissions, VRF support, device management and much more. Thanks go to ViciousEntropy for the recommendation.
A Second Free Tool
Kubernetes is a container-centric management environment. This portable, extensible, open-source platform allows you to manage containerized workloads and services. It facilitates both declarative configuration and automation and has a large, rapidly growing ecosystem of services, support and tools. Orchestrates computing, networking and storage infrastructure on behalf of user workloads. Recommended by SuperQue.
Another Free Tool
Process Monitor shows real-time file system, registry and process/thread activity for Windows. It combines the features of Filemon and Regmon with enhancements like rich and non-destructive filtering, comprehensive event properties, reliable process information, full thread stacks with integrated symbol support for each operation, simultaneous logging to a file and more.
TheTajmaha suggested PSR.exe (https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/patricka/2010/01/04/using-the-secret-wi...) as a Built-in screenshot tool for Windows that is similar to Sharex. "You can almost rewrite all your windows documentation with PSR and it comes with windows. It screenshots the steps and writes it out for you!"
One More Free Tool
Performance Analysis of Logs (PAL) interprets performance counter logs using known thresholds. Features an easy-to-use GUI, thresholds files for most of the main Microsoft products, report creation in HTML for copy/pasting into other applications. Analyzes performance counter logs for thresholds using thresholds whose criteria change based on the computer's role or hardware specs. Appreciation to jeffstokes72 for the suggestion.
P.S. Bonus Free Tools
SQL Workbench/J is a DBMS-independent, cross-platform SQL query tool designed to run SQL scripts (either interactively or as a batch) and export/import. It is written in Java and should work on any OS that provides a Java Runtime Environment. This one was kindly recommended by The-Dark-Jedi.
ConEmu is a highly configurable, fast terminal window for hosting any console application for WinAPI (cmd, powershell, far) or Unix PTY (cygwin, msys, wsl bash). It presents multiple consoles and simple GUI applications as one customizable, tabbed GUI window. Its deep integration makes ConEmu the best companion for Far Manager. Features include storing favorite commands and configurations in a one-click location and a text-based file manager. Looks at the currently running application and some heuristics and overlays progress. Recommended by majkinetor.
Have a fantastic week and as usual, let me know any comments.
