app4mac has released CheckUp 2.1 for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, a new update to the innovative tool that allows you to check the health and monitor the behavior of a Mac computer (even from a remote computer). Built from the ground up with Mac OS X technologies, CheckUp features an amazing user interface. CheckUp works with any Mac with a PowerPC G4, G5 or Intel Processor.

With its use of the latest Mac OS X technologies, breakthrough ease-of-use and innovation, all Mac users will find CheckUp very useful and even fun. It's the dashboard of your Mac!

CheckUp is designed to check your disks and memory but also to monitor the usage of CPU, Memory, Disk Drives and Network Adapters in a very visual way. By adding rules that will be triggered when certain conditions are met for a specified resource on the computer, you can receive visual notifications. For example, CheckUp can alert you when a hard drive seems to have hardware failures, even when the application is not opened (thanks to an innovative background process).

Testing Memory and Disks
CheckUp allows you to check your memory to detect bad components. Defective RAM are often responsable for the instability of your system. CheckUp also uses S.M.A.R.T. technology, which is a monitoring system for computer hard drives. In the hopes of anticipating failures, CheckUp detects and reports various indicators of reliability.

Monitoring System Capabilities
CheckUp allows you to discover your computer's capabilities in a very visual way. It also helps you to learn about supported operating systems. You can check if your Mac is able to run Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux, etc. You can find out how many Applications, Fonts, Drivers or Extensions are installed on your computer, as well as lots of other useful information.

Monitoring Processors
System load shows you your processor usage in percents, as well as the total number of running processes and threads and the available memory. It helps you understand how to improve the performance of your computer.

Monitoring Used Bandwidth
Some causes of high network activity are linked to peer to peer connections, file copying or large print jobs. Use CheckUp to create a log and calculate the network utilization. CheckUp can display the bandwidth data in a real-time graph. It records all network traffic and the total amount of data transfered on your network.

Monitoring Processes
The processes manager helps you get to know all about running programs and managing them. You can terminate a process or temporarily stop it. This tool can give you additional information about selected process: memory used, processor power used, etc.

Multiple screens support
If you have two or more screens, you can decide on which screen to display the information.

Advanced Remote Monitoring
With CheckUp, you can monitor CPU, memory, disks and the processes of one or more remote computers through a simple TCP/IP network connection. This can be helpful if you want to monitor the activity of your servers
