    Esniper http://esniper.sourceforge.net/

    A handy little tool from time to time, I always use it for auction-style listings

    juggernaut88 I once used offlineimap to transition all my legacy emails from exchange to google apps for business incidentally, it worked fine if incredulously slowly

    Agreed it's not super fast, I mainly use it for backup purposes as part of a cron job and when on a laptop travelling etc

    nmap https://nmap.org/

    nikto https://github.com/sullo/nikto
    Most people are unaware of the power of nmap, and should really read up on the scripting engine, nikto is more convenience scanning of hosts with all the heavy lifting done for you.

    So waaaaay back when, HP/UX had this tool called "Glance". I remember all the die-hard HP/UX guys giving the Linux kiddies crap non-stop because of their "toy OS" that didn't have "real measurement tools".

    Nice to see that like everything in proprietary UNIX land, it too has been cloned and open sourced. :)

    We have a few *nix machines that we'd like to get some more visibility of, and i'd like to make it even easier for the wintel guys that i work with. I'd assume you can centralize the reporting of this by exproting to an Influxdb+Grafana setup? Is this fairly easy to do, or are there easier methods?

    Scripting SALT automation for production of IOT sensors needing 100's of unique passwords for installation needed something I could run to create human friendly passwords.

    Started using this, along with influxdb and grafana for all our linux deployments that we manage (about 10 boxes). Pretty swish, has helped the non-linux guys to see running processes and what the hell is happening on these voodoo magic boxes that they don't know how to manage :)

    Thanks!
