Flexible server monitoring: watch websites and servers for changes and failures.

Dejal Simon is the essential site monitoring tool for Mac OS X. It checks web pages, FTP and DNS servers, local or remote ports, and other services for changes or failures, and notifies you via e-mail, sound, speech, or HTML reports.

Services include Web (HTTP), FTP files and directory listings, DNS, Ping servers, watch a local Application, capture periodic Screenshots, watch for System Log Errors, and more. Plus, you can easily add your own services via custom port connections, AppleScripts, shell scripts, or Perl, PHP, Python, etc.

Simon 3 is an absolute piece of junk. Slow, confusing and complicated interface. Breaks down with more than 30 tests (despite license for unlimited tests). 2.5.7 was okay for light use but avoid Simon 3 and avoid Simon altogether if you have a large number of tests to run.

I really like it :) Saves me nearly every week ..
