Flexible server monitoring

Simon 5 is coming soon!

Simon version 5 is currently in beta testing. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and will be a paid upgrade from Simon 4 after the beta. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Moving Simon

The old CPU that I have simon running on is getting flakey.

I am moving it to another one.

I have it configured to check about 50 servers. I don't want to have to reconfigure by hand.

Can I simply move Prefs FIle?

Re: Moving Simon

There are two things to move, as described in the FAQs:

The data is stored in a folder within your Application Support folder. The preferences are stored in your Preferences folder, naturally. The locations are as follows, where "~" means your home directory:

"~/Library/Application Support/Dejal/Simon/"
"~/Library/Preferences/com.dejal.simon2.plist".

Just copy those two items, and you'll be good to go.
