Tools for remote administration

'radmind' is a suite of tools and a server for remotely administering file systems of multiple Unix machines. At its core, radmind operates as a tripwire. It detects changes to any managed filesystem object (e.g. files, directories, links); once a change is detected, radmind can optionally reverse it. Each managed machine can have its own loadset composed of multiple, layered overloads. This lets (for example) the operating system be described separately from applications. Loadsets are stored on a remote server. By updating a loadset on the server, changes can be pushed to managed machines.
