Hmm.. System and security administration..

Apache, Big Brother, Snort, Snort-Snarf, MRTG, and nmap to name a few.

Big Brother, MRTG, Snort-Snarf need Apache to display the data.

Snort-Snarf reads the Snort logs and displays them in an html format.

nmap can be used to scan systems on your network to detect open ports to
give you an indication of what services are on the network.

MRTG can be used to monitor your router or just about anything that can
provide snmp data and even some things that don't use snmp.
