Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. 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 is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Delete Failed tests?

I use Simon to monitor our sites and occasionally a site will report a failure that I'm not sure about. It reports a failure, but I was able to access the site (via a different network). I'd like to be able to delete individual failure reports and have that downtime removed from the overall stats. Is this possible?

Re: Delete Failed tests?

Sometimes failures are very brief, so Simon can't access the server, but checking yourself a little later works. That still indicates a problem, though.

There currently isn't a way to remove log entries (and adjust the stats). I'm not sure that'd be a good idea, though I'd consider it if enough people asked for it.

Re: Delete Failed tests?

Still a good idea to remove failed tests due to Simon's connectivity issues while the server is running fine.
