Simon 2 Says: Monitor Your Server

Simon 2 Says: Monitor Your Server -- Dejal Software has released Simon 2, a major update to their server monitoring utility. Simon performs repetitive checks on a remote Internet service and reports back if the test fails and, if so, when the service comes back online. Simon can also watch Web pages for changes. The most important new feature is a Port service that provides the capability to check virtually any server type; that's key for keeping tabs on POP, IMAP, SMTP, AFP, DHCP, and other servers that weren't previous supported. Simon can notify you of problems with a variety of local actions, via email (which can enable text messages to cell phones), by launching an application (which extends Simon's reach even further), by playing a sound, or by speaking pre-defined text. Simon 2 also features a more flexible interface that better lends itself to the creation and maintenance of many tests and multiple notifiers. Simon 2 costs $30 (Basic License: 7 tests), $60 (Standard License: 20 tests), or $200 (Enterprise: unlimited number of tests). It's a 3.4 MB download. [ACE]
