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).

Simon freezes on Xserve

I have reccently moved Simon from a MacMini to a Xserve : I wil work fine for a period of time but often hangs (not responding),
I cannot find the process in EventViewer, in order to remove and restart the app, so i often have to restart the entire server.
does it have to do with Simon not being compatible with Xserve architecure?

Re: Simon freezes on Xserve

I know of several customers happily using Simon on Xserves and with the Server OSes, so I don't think that is the problem.

If it hangs again, please send me a Sample so I can see what it is stuck on:

1. Open Activity Monitor;
2. Click on Simon;
3. Click Sample Process;
4. Click Save... and save to a file;
5. Send me the file.
