This is a small list of some really nice linux tools I recommend every sysadmin to have somewhere.
linux comand to show memory slots
To find out many hardware information on linux you can use the awesome
lshw but when not available also dmidecode.
To find out how many memory for examples:
-How many slots:
# dmidecode -t 16
I have written similar script to check for a single server but this time
it scans a list of server.
It still not integrated with nagios because of the time it takes to execute
It does requires 7z.exe and dumpel.exe
So how can we now a website is working how it should.
As far as performance, server settings, code etc…
Remotely Get Local Admins Users inside Administrators group, for Workstations
Also tests the connectivity, it gets computers from AD object type “computer”
and it prints out a nice report.
My favorite Ubuntu aplications are:
Amarok – an amazing media player that leaves winamp, windows media player far far bellow
Firefox – simply the best browser out there, Add-ons (foxmarks, download statusbar, dictonary)
Thunderbird – best email client, also many add-ons, great integrated antispam.
VLC – simple and usefull video player
SciTE – SCIntilla based Text Editor. Many script/language editor, supports: Perl, Shell,C#,SQL,Shell etc..
Kismet – Wiereless Monitor Tool
Nautils(scripts)*- A good way to easly extend functionality of Gnome file explorer Nautilus

Firestarter – Firewall GUI for iptables
