CheckUp 1.0 released

App4mac today unveiled CheckUp 1.0, a new utility designed to check and monitor the health and behavior of a Mac, even from a remote location. CheckUp monitors processor, memory, disk, and network activity, and allows users to terminate any process that is currently being worked on by the computer. The software functions with PowerPC G4 or G5 processors, and any Intel based Mac. App4mac currently costs $50, and comes with a license that entitles users to install the application on two computers.

Users can add rules for monitoring process behavior that trigger visual notifications, such as exceeding a particular resource value or in the event of an impending hard drive failure. These functions can be triggered even if the utility is not currently running. Users can also check whether their computer can run Leopard or not, or if it is able to run a given set of applications without major performance loss.

CheckUp's user interface is designed to make setup and use simple, requiring very little configuration to operate properly.
