Overseer 5.0.87 has now been released.

Posted on September 14th, 2012

I have just released a new version of Overseer Network Monitor, 5.0.87. This release includes a new feature for ping resource types. Normally when defining a ping resource, you can choose to fail if the host is unavailable, or if latency exceeds a specified amount. I’ve added a new setting per user request– the ‘Reachable’ setting. Now, you can create ping resource types that will fail if a host **is** available. This can be useful to know when certain computers are connected to the network and/or turned on. The specific customer who requested this is looking to be notified whenever one of his company’s employees plug in their laptops that they bring home with them.
