At the KB-Denmark Netarkiv we are working on some quite radical changes to our backend architecture - replacing our ArcRepository storage with bitrepository.org software, and implementing a new mass-processing architecture probably based on hadoop. As part of this process we would like to know what parts of NAS are actually in use at our partner institutions so we can develop a strategy for future support. 

NAS Applications

Which of the following NAS applications (services are in use in your production environment?

Command Line Tools

Over the years, the NetarchiveSuite codebase has accumulated a lot of command line utilities. Some of these were probably developed for a single specialised use-case or for test purposes, but others may have become part of the normal workflow at the various repositories. Here is a partial list of those that look most likely to be of general interest. Please mark any of those you know of that are used as part of your workflows.
