Pepsan & Associates Inc. has released AysMon 2.0. Short for Are You Serving Monitor, AysMon helps you keep track of resources on your Mac OS X system associated with network services.

Java-based, AysMon is a self-configuring utility that can show you information like open server ports, bandwidth usage and disk utilization. AysMon uses auto-discovery to determine what disks and network interfaces are available. You can also customize AysMon to display relevant information about the services you want to monitor in particular -- HTTP, FTP, DNS, Telnet, Finger and so forth -- as well as frequency of updates.

Pepsan & Associates explained that AysMon 2.0 has been released to support "upcoming software updates from Apple," and indeed may be needed by developers who are using preview releases seeded by Apple. AysMon 2.0 works with current system software, also.

AysMon is distributed as freeware, but Pepsan & Associates collects donations on a "purely optional" basis through the Kagi shareware service, to give the developers an incentive to keep working on it. AysMon is priced at $5 for a single-user license, if you choose to pay for it.
