utilities for block layer IO tracingblktrace is a block layer IO tracing mechanism which provides detailed information about request queue operations up to user space. There are three major components that are provided: . blktrace: A utility which transfers event traces from the kernel into either long-term on-disk storage, or provides direct formatted output (via blkparse). . blkparse: A utility which formats events stored in files, or when run in live mode directly outputs data collected by blktrace. . iowatcher: A utility to visualize block I/O patterns. It generates graphs from blktrace runs to help visualize IO patterns and performance. It can plot multiple blktrace runs together, making it easy to compare the differences between different benchmark runs.
generates text and graphical readout of current bandwidth useThis program will output a PNG and a text file that can be used in scripts or be included in web pages to show current bandwidth usage. The amount of total bandwidth can be customized. The PNG output appears as a bar graph showing maximum possible usage with the current inbound or outbound usage shown as a differently colored bar.

Compute checksum of individual track on CD-ROMSCD-ROM Digest is a program that checks a multi-track CD-ROM. It reports the MD5 digest and size for each track on a CD-ROM. The digest is done as the track is read, without dumping CD-ROM data on the hard drive. This tool helps users that are burning a multi-track CD-ROM to check the result.
Utilities for Advanced Power Management (APM)On laptop computers, the Advanced Power Management (APM) support provides access to battery status information and may help you to conserve battery power, depending on your laptop and the APM implementation. The apmd program also lets you run arbitrary programs when APM events happen (for example, you can eject PCMCIA devices when you suspend, or change hard drive timeouts when you connect the battery). . This package contains apmd(8), a daemon for logging and acting on APM events; and apm(1), a client that prints the information in /proc/apm in a readable format. . apmd is notified of APM events by the APM driver in the kernel. . Since lenny Debian kernels are not built with APM support anymore. You need to compile a kernel with apm support enabled to use this package. You need to boot the kernel with the "apm=on" option if you want to enable the driver. . In most cases, users may want to know that there are newer power management schemes, like ACPI.
