netplug - network link monitor daemon… more info»
Stuff that needs doing: - Prevent food fights with hotplug and/or pcmcia_cs over who ought to be trying to configure interfaces when PCMCIA or Cardbus network cards are inserted. - Deal with wireless interfaces, which are currently untested. - Integrate with distributions other than Red Hat. I don't use any others, so patches are welcome. - Add a notification interface, so other programs that care about carrier events can talk to netplug, instead of using the rather obtuse netlink protocol. - Avoid storms of DHCP traffic if a cluster of systems running netplug is connected to a big switch that gets power cycled. This will probably involve adding a smallish random delay before responding to a netlink event. - See if anything special needs doing for interfaces that don't look like Ethernet.
