Service Monitor 1.0b1 BETA
Updated 7/1/05. Read Me | User's manual
For Mac OS X 10.1+ - Disk image - Download (1.6MB)

This file contains a public beta of version 1.0b1 of Service Monitor, a new application that works with our PowerKey and Kick-off! products to ensure that internet services running on a computer keep working.

Service Monitor works by periodically querying the chosen services running on this computer, and verifying that they respond as desired. As long as they do, Service Monitor updates a "Rebound! Timer" in the PowerKey/Kick-off! software. If the service fails for any reason, Service Monitor stops updating the corresponding timer, and PowerKey/Kick-off! can take appropriate action to restart the computer.

This version includes the ability to monitor any application that provides web (HTTP, HTTPS), FTP or mail (SMTP, POP3) service. It can also directly monitor FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Server.

Note: This is a preview release, and may be incomplete and not fully compatible with all systems. We have done extensive in-house testing, but cannot guarantee that it will function in all situations. If you find a problem when using this software, please let us know! You can send emails to . We appreciate any input you may have.
