Maxum Development Announces PageSentry For Mac OS X
March 13, 2001. Just two months after Maxum Development Corp. released the
last major revision of PageSentry, version 3.0, Maxum today announced
another major upgrade to their complete Internet server monitoring solution.
“PageSentry is all about reliability, and Apple’s OS X provides us with an
incredibly reliable and robust platform to start with,” said Maxum’s
President, John O’Fallon. “The imminent release of OS X has prompted us to
not only port PageSentry to OS X, but to make PageSentry both easier to get
started with for small developers and more powerful and scalable for large
The update, which will run natively under OS X (while remaining compatible
with Classic Mac OS), will offer new reporting features to help network
administrators gauge server reliability, detect chronic problems, and
monitor quality of service. Additional changes are being made under the
surface, making PageSentry’s test management much more efficient and
allowing testing of every aspect of even the largest networks.
Although pricing has not yet been set, PageSentry 4.0 is expected to be
released in several variations to better meet the needs of network managers
with a single Internet server through large enterprises with hundreds of
servers. A public beta version will be made available to coincide with
Apple’s release of Mac OS X on March 24. PageSentry version 4.0 is expected
to be released later in the spring of 2001.
