All of Severn's webtools are located at https://watcher204.cscf.uwaterloo.ca/tools/

Tools that are still current are documented here. the datasets for tools that you cannot make changes to are updated once every night overnight

SWAudiT

  • used to audit switches and commrooms
  • soon to be deprecated in favour of the ONA integrated SWAudiT (coming soon?)

Corpus Hostus

  • also known as the deadhosts system
  • uses data gathered from the scanning modules (SevScanSoft) to determine what it believes are inactive hostnames
  • can generate a csv list for mass mailing or a hostname only list
  • can detect hosts that have tried hard to mask their presence through ARPing (if enabled)

Query tools

  • fairly simple tools that query the gathered data for certain pieces of information

Other tools

  • Automailer: a command line script to take a csv and a template, mail merge them, and mail out the contents
    • this was used primarily as the middle step that required human intervention to get mails out to users asking them about their hostnames
