Gumbynet is a number of things
1) It's a waaay old group of people interested in network experimentation.
2) It's a software repository for that group of people
3) It's a cool domain name ;)
Historically, Gumbynet supported an IRC Network, a MUD, and provided DNS and web-hosting services for a number of non-profit tech groups. Today, it is simply a group of software developers using it as a common repository for their code.
|jNetD is a java-oriented replacement for linux's inetd. Allowing multiple 'services' to be loaded into the daemon, and pools of those services kept to service requests on specified TCP Ports.
|JSMTPD is intended to be a light-weight mail server which provides a configuration format which is a hybrid of Obtuse SMTPD and Sendmail. Written in Java as a test of jNetD and Java's TCP handling speed, so far it is kicking sendmail's butt on mail queuing! (200 messages/second per TCP stream)
|Carnivore is a host monitoring and reporting tool. Modelled after Big Brother, but intended to be a more reliable real-time reporting tool, Carnivore is a multi-part system. The Monitoring side of the tool runs as its own system process, utilising a JDBC database connection as its configuration source and reporting log. The Management side of the system is a Nexus module, allowing both HTTP and Nexus access to the system.
|Nexus is a light-weight client-server framework, built somewhat like EJB, but without the associated speed overheads. Tested to 2200 requests/second on a PIII-1GHz, it is used as the Client-Server framework for all of Gumbynet's client-server java projects.
