One much-requested application for GFW integration is hardware/system monitoring. To address that need, I am releasing an early version of System Monitor - a hardware/system monitoring application with full Growl support.
Out of the box, System Monitor can provide alerts for the following events:
- Low Disk Space (configurable by drive)
- Event Log Entries (filter by log and source)
- Network Connection Status
- Ping Host Failed (configurable host address)
- Battery Low
- Battery Critical
- USB Device Inserted
- USB Device Removed
System Monitor is also modular, so it is not too hard to add support for additional events in the future.
This is an early release to solicit your feedback. As such, the application is aimed more at developers and sysadmins than regular users. All monitor configuration currently requires editing an xml file (there are plans to add a configuration UI in a later release), and there may be bugs or strange behavior. If that doesn't scare you off, then I invite you to download System Monitor and give it a whirl.
Any comments, suggestions, feedback, or bug reports are always welcome.
