Hardware Monitor Build 100908 Ranking & Summary
Hardware Monitor Build 100908 description
Other computers can contact this system via network (local area network, wireless network or the Internet) to receive readings from all available hardware sensors. Hardware Monitor allows you to monitor the computer it is running on in the standard configuration. Hardware Monitor Remote extends its capabilities to monitor additional computers in the network as well.
You can connect to an unlimited number of computer simultaneously and monitor them all from a single workstation. (In practice, the actual number may be limited by the speed of your network.) Of course you can also use several monitoring stations to receive data from an arbitrary number of other computers.
Hardware Monitor Remote is electronically distributed software. You can download the product and test it before you decide to purchase an unrestricted usage license.
- Temperarature readings at different locations
- Battery data of portable computers
- Voltage sensors
- Current (amperage) sensors
- Fan speed sensors
- Sensors for pulse-width controlled fans
- Power and load sensors
- Ambient light sensors
- User-defined artificial sensors to monitor the operating system
- Temperature display selectable in degrees Celsius, Fahrenheit, or Kelvin
- Display of many other sensors, if supported by Mac OS X on the specific computer model
- Display of the sensor equipment of the system, and their permissible limits (if released by Apple)
- Display of current readings in a horizontal or vertical window that can be customized
- Display of current readings in a "floating" screen display or on the background of the Desktop
- Output of no, one, or two selectable current readings in a Dock tile
- Output of no, one, or up to eight selectable current readings in the menu-bar
- Definition of an unlimited number of history graphs that visualize readings in a time interval between 12 minutes and 1 week
- Adjustable refresh interval between 1 second and 1 hour
- Customizable labels and display options for all sensors
- Periodic automatic recording and safe storage of history data for defective, unstable computers
- Customizable announcements of current readings via speech output
- Customizable definition of alarm triggers for each sensor
- Definition of alarm actions, e.g. opening an alert panel, speech warnings, Growl notification, launching an application or script
- Export of readings or history data sets into text files or CSV files
- readings can also be acquired by scripts or in Terminal. The application comes with a special command-line tool to achieve this.
- Display of hardware details, e.g. serial numbers or manufacturing data
- Display of system management data on Intel-based systems
- Definition of artificial sensors that monitor aspects of the operating system, e.g. CPU load, number of processes, disk usage, memory usage, paging activity, network interface activity (only in 10.4 or later), SMART verification status, status of Mac OS X software RAIDs, electrical power, remaining battery capacity
- Display of detail information and SMART status of all currently attached hard drives
- Display of detail information about all currently attached battery units
- Display of detail information and operational status of attached Xserve hard drive modules
- Remote monitoring of computers via a TCP network in connection with the add-on application Hardware Monitor Remote
- Control of external LCD panels, including freely customizable output definitions. Alphanumeric liquid crystal displays compliant with the original Hitachi HD44780 industry standard are supported. The LCD panel must be connected via a USB control unit "IO-Warrior 24" a product of Code Mercenaries Hard- und Software GmbH. Alternatively, the application supports the CF-632 and CF-634 USB display series from Crystalfontz America, Inc., and displays in Logitech products, controlled by the Logitech LCD Manager software.
- Added support for new (Mid-2010) iMac computers.
- Added support for computers with Intel "Westmere class" processors, including the new (Mid-2010) Mac Pro systems.
- Added support for many additional sensors found in Intel-based Macintosh computers.
- Added the display of known sensor limits for locations in certain older Intel-based Macintosh computers.
- Added option to the command-line version of Hardware Monitor to append quantity descriptions to each sensor label. This is helpful to identify sensors more easily on Macintosh models which measure several quantities at the same sensor location.
- The new version shows a production location for computers refurbished at the European Apple Online Store.
- The window to display extreme values no longer uses a misleading value of 0 when selecting a time period where no readings have been collected yet.
- When displaying long-term history graphs of remote computers, network traffic has been greatly reduced.
- By user request, a menu item has been added to the Lite version to let the application automatically launch at login time. It is no longer necessary to use the System Preferences application for defining the login item.
- Resolved a problem where sensor entries referring to remote computers might have been lost in customized history windows when restarting the application.
- Resolved a problem where the values for data transfer rates of network interface probes could overflow, showing negative readings for very fast networks.
- Mac OS X 10.4 or later
