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).

Next check: waiting?


Today, I open Simon and I see all my test servers have the Next check value to "waiting". After a few click on the Check Now, nothing was working. I had to quit and re-launch Simon in order to fix the problem.

Any Ideas?

Re: Next check: waiting?

"Waiting" means that the license reminder is being displayed. Perhaps it was behind the Monitor window? The tests wait for it to be dismissed during the trial period, to prevent just ignoring it.
