GeBE Computer & Peripherie GmbH has released a new plug-in for InterMapper, DeviceWatcher for InterMapper 1.0. DeviceWatcher is designed to extend InterMapper capabilities by probing free space on specific disk partitions. The app places a deamon on target machines and can access the disk space information remotely using InterMapper. According to GeBE Computer & Peripherie GmbH:

Increasing the reliability of network services is the goal of the DeviceWatcher for InterMapper Version 1.0, released today by GeBE Computer & Peripherie GmbH. A plug-in to the popular InterMapper Software by Dartware, LLC, the software can be used to extend InterMapper´s capabilities to monitor remote servers to include probing of the free space left on specific disk partitions in the target machines.

The product consists of a daemon to be installed on the target machine and a matching InterMapper Probe file to query the daemon, trigger the InterMapper notification system and provide feedback about the used disk space to the user on InterMapper maps. The daemon comes with startup and installation scripts for Mac OS X and Linux and requires a recent version of Perl which is usually included in installations of Mac OS X and Linux.
