With its use of the latest Mac OS X technologies, breakthrough
ease-of-use and innovation, all Mac users will find CheckUp extremely
useful and even fun. It’s like the dashboard of your car.
CheckUp is first designed to monitor the usage of CPU, Memory,
Disk Drives and Network Adapters. You can display detailed information
about all running processes and pause or terminate these at any time.
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 certain
resource exceeds a certain value or when a hard drive seems to have
hardware failures, even when the application is not opened (thanks to
an innovative background process).
One of the most innovative feature of CheckUp is the ability to monitor
a Mac on a network or via internet. It’s a powerful feature for IT
administrators interested to check a remote computer or a remote server.
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.
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.
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.
