Monitor a Mac via iPhone
Bjango has released iStat 1.0, a network monitoring app that allows users to check up on thier Macs. The app also provides detailed iPhone stats, including available memory, IP addresses, usage and load averages. Included network tools allow users to ping servers and resolve hostnames with traceroute. The Melbourne-based developer says iStat also includes a "Free Memory" tool which works to free up unused space reserved by third-party iPhone applications.
The remote monitoring functions allow users to check on a Mac's CPU, fans, operating temperatures, uptime and load averages, memory and disks. Bjango's iStat Server software is required for remote monitoring, and is available as a free download.
iStat is available now at the App Store for $2, and works with v2.0 iPhones and the iPod touch.
