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).

Option to keep it from collecting cookies?

It would be nice if there were an option in the Web (HTTP) service test to disable collection of cookies. We have an issue locally where if older cookies remain, sometimes server requests will fail until those cookies are removed. Is this an option currently? If not, could you note it as an enhancement request?

Thanks so much! We are a huge fan of Simon in our team other than this small issue,

Re: Option to keep it from collecting cookies?

Yes, that is planned for version 2.6. I plan to add cookie management options in this version; see this previous thread for more information.

My current schedule indicates a beta of 2.6 around the new year, though that's always subject to change. It's my next priority once I get my secret iPhone app out of the way....
