EventSentry SysAdmin Tools 2.1.1.1
Free console-based network management tools

EventSentry SysAdmin Tools is a free collection of command line tools covering various network and system administration tasks.

Our favourite is probably CheckURL, which checks a specified URL to see if it's changed, or includes some defined text. By default this will display its results at the command line, but it can also use your event logs, and so you might have Task Scheduler run some program whenever a change is detected.

Other checking tools include CheckDB to verify (via ODBC) that a database server is running, and a database is online, while CheckTCP confirms that a TCP port on a host is open.

Network tools include GetHTTP (download files from a script), FPing (a fast Ping), NTPClient (check system time against an NTP server), PageSNPP (send a message to a pager) and WakeOnLan (turn on a specified network computer).

File management utilities include ADSList (scan for files with alternate data streams), CheckSum (generate SHA hashes, MD5 and more), DirMon (display file changes in real time), DirectorySize (display the total size of a folder tree) and PurgeTemp (delete files more than a certain number of days old).

There are plenty of other programs, too, from the tiny UpTime (displays the current system uptime) to Event Message Browser (view all your event logs, sources and messages, and generate test events as required) and even ShutDownTimer, a GUI tool which shuts down/ restarts a system at a certain time, as long as no files are open.

Verdict:

Some of the SysAdmin Tools are trivial, others too technical for most people, but if you regularly spend time at the command line (or creating your own scripts) then you'll still find several useful programs here.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
