Mac software developer app4mac on Monday introduced a new utility to monitor the health of your computer. While still in beta, you can download and use
CheckUp Preview 1
According to the developer, CheckUp is designed to monitor the usage of CPU, Memory, Disk Drives and Network Adapters and alert you when a certain resource exceeds a certain value.
If you manage remote computers, CheckUp is able to monitor a Mac from the local network or via Internet, making it easier for admins to keep track of different systems from one location.
App4mac said you can create usage reports and displays detailed information about all running processes. You can also add rules that will be triggered when certain conditions are met for a specified resource on a computer.
CheckUp is optimized for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. From December 10th 2007 up to the end of January 2008, Mac users can use CheckUp for free. The initial price for the software is $29.
