Dejal Simon 2.0 release
Dejal Systems today released , a site monitoring tool for Mac OS X which checks for failures, tracks updated sites and alerts users when a site recovers. The monitor window enables users to see at a glance the current status of all monitored websites, servers and applications as well as various statistics such as up-time percentage and when the last change/failure occurred. Version 2 brings over 50 new features and enhancements, such as a major overhaul of the monitor window and a new Port service, that enables you to engage in a telnet-like conversation with any server (e.g., POP, SMTP, and SSH). Simon 2.0 is available for Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later and is priced at $30 (up to 7 tests), $60 (20 tests), or $200 (unlimited tests). It is a free upgrade for purchases after July 1, 2004; upgrades for others are $20.
