James Sentman is proud to announce the release of Whistle Blower 3.1.
Whistle Blower is an enterprise server monitor, functional testing and
restart utility for the Macintosh. In addition to standard network
connectivity tests like a ping, Whistle Blower connects to your services as
a client and verifies that they are available and operating properly. The
response to an outage can be a simple email or page, all the way up to
power cycling the server via a PowerKey or Master Switch. Whistle Blower’s
powerful shift notification features make sure that the tech who is on call
the night of the outage is the one who gets the page while ignoring your
Whistle Blower 3.1 has over 26 specific server types that it can connect to
directly, including but not limited to web servers and SSL web servers,
File Maker, Radius authentication, DNS, 4D and FTP.
Version 3.1 adds a new “Email Cycle” check that sends a test email via SMTP
and then waits to receive it via POP, validating all aspects of an email
delivery system, Improved reliability on OSX, and many OSX only features
such as validating the return from a shell script and running a shell
command in response to a server failure. For a complete list of new
features please see the Whistle Blower home page.
