Net_Monitor now supports the latest release of Net_Growl (announced yesterday). Growl is an attractive global notification and alert system for OS X. Versions 0.7 and above support remote messaging via UDP, which makes this yet another useful way to receive alerts from the Net_Monitor package about the status of many common services it can monitor. The Net_Monitor_Alert_Growl class is currently available via cvs for your perusal. This and Net_Monitor_Alert_Jabber should be part of the next packaged release of Net_Monitor. For those of you that can’t wait, just pop either of these files into the Net/Monitor/Alert subdirectory of your Pear installation, and Growl or Jabber away.
