Editors' Review

Simon (from Dejal Systems) is a reasonably priced, feature-rich site-monitoring tool, especially useful to administrators who need to keep track of multiple sites, servers, and applications. The app's primary interface is a straightforward Monitor window, which displays everything that you're tracking with stats on uptime, time until the next check, and time since the last change and failure--along with graphs, lists, and more details when you drill down. You can drag and drop URLs onto the Monitor window, or import from bookmarks, and Simon's services let you define what you want to test, from SMART status to mounting drives, communicating with mail servers, checking and relaunching apps, and more.

Simon is even more useful outside of its main interface: you can access many functions through the Dock or a Status menu in the menu bar, and you can receive notification a variety of ways, including via Growl, speech, Twitter, or e-mail. Simon can even send a text message to your phone when a site goes down, or just log the event in a database. You can modify all these notification options with plug-ins or scripts (including AppleScript and shell scripts), and Simon also lets you customize its services, allowing you to create new ones or simply edit the defaults.

Advanced users will appreciate all this customizability (along with extras like session capturing and multipage reports), but even less experienced users can quickly get up to speed with this flexible, reliable utility.

"Excellent replacement for Whistleblower"

June 23, 2008  |  By afterhours

 |  Version: Dejal Simon 2.4.1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I waited years for James Sentman to get around to updating Whistleblower for the newer APC equipment. Sadly, that hasn't happened (yet).

But on the bright side, it forced me to find a modern solution, and with Simon, I've got all the control over my alerts and AP7900 that I need. Server monitoring is back, and with Simon, I feel unleashed from the server room again. The developer has been open and responsive to questions about the product and feature enhancements. Once I outgrow my $60 license, it'll be a no-brainer to move up to Enterprise.

"Excellent piece of Software"

November 22, 2006  |  By David Chandler

 |  Version: Dejal Simon 2.2c1

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I have been using Simon for over a year now and all I can say is what a great product, it does what it is supposed to and the support from the developer is first class, if you have any configuration problems David goes out of his way to help (even at weekends), this product gets better and better with each release, there is nothing else like it. If you want to monitor your servers and keep an eye on what is happening this product is a must have.

What's new in version 4.1

Redesigned Web feature

  • The Web (HTTP) editor has been significantly redesigned, to use a list of pages including Parameters, Headers, Cookies and Other. Clicking on one shows the corresponding page.
  • The Method pop-up menu is now on the Parameters page, since it indicates how the parameters are sent.
  • The Username and Password fields are now on the Other page; they are only useful if you connect to a server that has an authentication challenge (as displayed in a web browser via a sheet; not the same as a in-page form-based login).
  • Both the test and notifier editions of the Web feature received these changes.
  • Updated the web helper to 64-bit.

Web feature support for custom headers

  • The new Headers list enables you to add custom headers to send with the request, e.g. Accept, User-Agent, etc.
  • Note that sending a request via Post will set the Content-Type and Content-Length headers, overriding any you may add.
  • Also for both tests and notifiers.
  • Now does Post requests via the more compact application/x-www-form-urlencoded content type, instead of multipart/form-data.

Support for dynamic web content

  • Added an option to the Web (HTTP) service to enable capturing the rendered source some interval after the base HTML is loaded, to support including dynamic changes from JavaScript, as is more and more common nowadays.

Various improvements and fixes

  • If the When pop-up menu for a test filter is changed to None, the filter plugin controls are now removed, as expected.
  • Changed the (-) button to set the When pop-up menu to None for the last filter or notifier in the test.
  • Fixed an issue where the Preview source wouldn't finish loading if the Preview is displayed on launch of the app.
  • When adding a new test with the Preview displayed, now displays a message saying that there's no location, instead of making the test a failure immediately.
  • Changed the display of status icons in the Tests list to support the Use simple status icons preference option (that uses just green & red instead of fading colors over time).
  • Moved the Delete menu item from the File menu to the Edit menu, to match the placement in most other apps.
  • Fixed enabling and disabling of menu and toolbar items depending on the selected list items.
  • Fixed a very vexing code signing issue with the Growl framework.
  • Updated a few pages in the help book.
