Server Monitoring App Updated, Gains OS X Compatibility

Maxum Development has announced a major update to their server monitoring utility, PageSentry. Version 4.0 will gain OS X compatibility, as well as provide a host of new features. PageSentry constantly monitors server behavior to make sure that everything is working as it should, and is able to notify somebody via pager if the server develops a problem. According to Maxum Development:

Just two months after Maxum Development Corp. released the last major revision of PageSentry, version 3.0, Maxum today announced another major upgrade to their complete Internet server monitoring solution.

"PageSentry is all about reliability, and Appleis OS X provides us with an incredibly reliable and robust platform to start with," said Maxumis President, John OiFallon. "The imminent release of OS X has prompted us to not only port PageSentry to OS X, but to make PageSentry both easier to getstarted with for small developers and more powerful and scalable for large organizations."

The update, which will run natively under OS X (while remaining compatible with Classic Mac OS), will offer new reporting features to help network administrators gauge server reliability, detect chronic problems, and monitor quality of service. Additional changes are being made under the surface, making PageSentryis test management much more efficient and allowing testing of every aspect of even the largest networks.

Pricing for PageSentry 4.0 has not yet been set, but a beta version is expected to be released in conjunction with Mac OS Xis official release. You can find more information at the Maxum Development Web site.
