Simon For Mac: A Feature-Rich Server Monitoring Solution [Deals]


CoM - Simon-01

If you’ve been looking for flexible, comprehensive server monitoring then look no further – this Cult of Mac Deals offer is what you’ve been searching for.

For administrators who need to keep track of multiple sites, servers, and applications, Simon is the tool to do it. With a beautiful and intuitive interface, the app displays everything you’re tracking with key stats on uptime, time until next check, time since last change and failures – and even displays this info with graphs and lists when you drill down.

After you’ve set your test parameters, Simon can notify you via Growl, speech, Twitter, email, and even text message whenever an update is available or a server goes down. Advanced users will enjoy extras like session capturing and multipage reports, but even less experienced users can quickly get up to speed with this flexible, reliable utility.

And you can get the “bronze edition” of Simon right now for the low price of only $25 courtesy of Cult of Mac Deals.

With Simon you can create HTML reports that allow you to remotely view any summary of your monitoring. Save reports to a local web server, or upload them remotely. Customizable templates allow you to embed in a web page, view on PDAs and cellphones, create an RSS feed, and more.

Here are just some of the features that Simon boasts:

  • Version Updates: Powerful new filters, new activity log, redesigned editor windows, and much more
  • Complete Site Monitoring Services: HTTP, DNS, FTP, MySQL, and SNMP support – see the full feature list here

Simon offers incredible versatility – monitor your websites, servers, and key applications, track posts and new comments on blogs, check for email and updates to news and entertainment sites, keep an eye on web auctions, and a variety of other uses.
