Customer feedback is appreciated: your ideas for new plugins may be implemented in future versions!

With the default plugin your have 3 widgets which can ping hosts periodically, monitor changes to specified file system elements and run validation scripts which will check anything you make them to. Existing widgets not only notify you about happening events, but let you configure an automated response to them. Currently shell scripts and Automator workflows are supported.
