Pepsan & Associates has updated two of its Mac OS X utilities in preparation for Mac OS X 10.2, which will be released later this month. The two network utilities are freeware.
Aysmon provides “at-a-glance” view of network services and network interfaces. It’s a useful utility to figure out what network services are active, and by implication may be subject to network attack, according to the developer.
Granet — a contraction of the words “graph” and “networking” — is a utility that graphs the throughput of each active network interface on your computer. It works with any network interface recognized by Mac OS X — Ethernet, AirPort, PPP — and displays each interface in its own window.
Pepsan & Associates noted that the other utilities in its arsenal of Mac OS X products required no changes to work with Jaguar.
