HandyFileMonitor 0.9 download by ChaosCoder
HandyFileMonitor - simple yet powerful program activity monitoring application Program activity monitoring is extremely important for many users. Maintenance utilities, many server and client applications, or real time calculations require continuous operation of a running process. In this case, no matter how reliable the program is, errors or unexpected emergency shutdowns may still occur- for this reason there are many monitor applications allowing in the case of crashes executing scripts, restarting program or different ways of notifying the user about the occurred error. Different applications of program activity monitoring use different methods of control. Most of them check in pre-set intervals the availability of the basic process of the program in memory or the use of computer system resources by them - it is a quite reliable and convenient method. But there are times when this method is not applicable. For example, if a program freezes or has issued a critical error, the process in the memory remains, but the operations are no longer performed. In this case, other program testing criteria are necessary. For example - the program HandyFileMonitor, can monitor the activity of any application that has a log file. This application is based on a simple rule: if the size of the log file increases, the program works, and if the size of the log file is unchanged - the program either accomplished all current tasks, or stopped working because of an error or hang. For the cases where the program should run until the user stops it (various modules of data stream-processing, distribution, network scanning utilities and other softwares ) using HandyFileMonitor is more convenient. Easy to set up. This application does not require installation, does not register information to the computer registry and can be launched from any mobile carrier. The possibility to run simultaneously multiple HandyFileMonitors, allowing the parallel monitoring of several programs.
