I reviewed this software, thinking it would be useful and easy to setup for several monitoring tasks. I find Simon difficult to use. The filters work counter intuitive. One of the things I tried was to check mail with apple iCloud. I could not get the map working, as it does not support TLS out of the box. I really missed a logfile of what the service is doing under the hoods. There is no (conventional) log, just an output line which does not help much when setting up new rules. Also, the help is very basic. No instructions, just a few simple examples. Left me wondering quite a few times. Waste many hours just to get some simple stuff done. I consider leaving Simon and writing custom scripts by myself, so I have full control, debugging facilities and most importantly: understand exactly what is going on. (btw, many of the services are just scripts in the Simon interface as well). too bad, tried to like it and get stuff done quickly....

Powerful and reliable, but expensive if you don't need all the features, and I found it complicated to set up initially. My main use is monitoring the pages of some internet sellers who occasionally put up stuff which sells out quickly. Simon can do this, of course, but not with the default settings, since many web pages have ads, counters and other junk that trigger false positives. So setting up an alert in Simon requires digging around in the HTML of the webpage, then adding "block filters" that check for changes in only the parts you're interested in. I feel that some kind of setup wizard could make this task a lot easier.

I was thinking of using this, but I managed to reliably, repeatedly, crash the software within 1 minute of using it.

Pity because I would like software with this functionality. Perhaps if they could guarantee a fix I would consider it, but I guess it won't be at this good price again!

This software is functionally very comprehensive. It can accomplish tasks that few other titles can. But, the new interface is atrocious. The goal of making everything so light, so absolute minimal contrast makes it so you have to stare at the screen, just to find out what is going on.

I really want to love this software. It performs a task we really need. But, the interface has completely killed its viability in our environment. I wish developers would stop trying to copy everything Ive does and make an interface that fits the application it is used in. This is not about making everything disappear. In fact, it is about making the important stuff appear, and not without having to be six inches from the display. Monitoring software should be good at seated position or at 5 feet. Intermapper and Lithium understood that. Your old version might have been a little busy for an interface, but functionally, it worked so much better than this one.

We were ready to purchase three licenses when we heard about the new Simon. We keep evaluating the trial, but in the end, we are not investing in this with this interface. The old systems will have to do.

I started using Simon about two weeks ago. Since then, it has done exactly what I hoped it would - let me know when my website servers are down without disrupting my workflow or hindering system memory. I'm quite impressed and look forward to seeing just how reliable my web hosts are. :)

I've used Simon for several years. Quietly monitoring my own sites for uptime and speed. I've always been impressed with the stability of the product. Over the years, new features have been added and I've really taken for granted just how powerful Simon is. With v3.0 I'm very pleased to be able to fine-tune filters and monitor my sites with more granularity.

I cannot speak highly enough of this product and company. Simon allows monitoring of websites to be performed in the background and records of up/down time to be kept. It also allows sophisticated filtering/conditions to be set up on the sites checking for changes etc. The interface is nice and clean and I had this application downloaded, installed and starting to do its job within 15 minutes of purchasing. IMHO - Simon is the best in its class on the Mac. A word about the company...by far the best customer experience I have had with a software company in a very long time. Quick and honest replies...a real pleasure to deal with. Product, price and customer service are all winners for me!

Lets face it monitoring your website is much the same as backing up your computer, you just don't think about it until you have a problem. If you don't use a program such as Simon then the first time you may know you have a problem will be when you accidentally find the problem or even worse, like me, when you are officially given a take down notice because your website had been hijacked for a week. Simon is a fantastic way of ensuring your personal or business websites are running smoothly and can even let you monitor other (competitors) sites for changes. I've always found Simon to be easy to use and configure and once set up there really is nothing you need to do other than start it and let it alert you to any changes or downtime. I've been using Simon 2 for a few years and after using the beta version of Simon 3 for a little while I can say without reservation that this is the best version of Simon yet. It has managed to remain a simple to use program but has packed far more features into what was already a pretty feature packed program. I would have to say Simon 3 really is a necessary upgrade for existing users, there are just simply too many new features and refinements to not consider an upgrade and if you have any type of web presence or website that you care about and don't have this program then you owe it to yourself or your business to buy this program.

This is one of those programs that "runs in the background" and therefore is seldom noticed. It just works! But it's saved my bacon on more than one occasion when a site or blog went down. It pretty much just works out of the box - not hard to figure out at all. Also, I've never had an issue with it. But the developer has a good rep so I suspect I'd have no problem getting help if I needed it.

My sense is that this will run best on a machine that is always on to monitor and store results of the tests. I was really hoping for an on-the-go analysis app, but clearly this will produce much better results over the time that it is consistently running.

I've actually been using Simon for several days, trying to decide which utility to purchase to monitor a dozen or so web pages. Although it's a well- designed app (looks *are* important to me), I'm put off by the price. Even at half price and with the extra features, I can't justify a purchase -- right now.

Dejal Simon could let me respond more promptly to website comments and to emails, and get news I care about when it's fresh, and would probably have uses I don't now realize, yet I hesitate to spend so much, wonder if future updates will be free. What other programs do similar monitoring and notification? On the basic license, by "7 tests", do you mean it does that many checks at a given time, but forever, or that many checks period, and then it expires?

If you're in a *nix environment (or your servers are), you can use freeware like Big Brother to monitor services and send notifications, which is what we do at my workplace. However, it would be nice to have that capability from my own machine, rather than relying on the servers self-checking, which has some inherent problems. I'll try this out, and then see if maybe my work will pay for it. :-)

BTW - One thing I don't like about this is app is it's licensing scheme. I simply think there is too big gap between Standard and Enterprise licenses, both in price and number of tests available for user.

Wow! I'm pleasantly surprised to see this offered on mupromo! Some lucky commenter is going to really get a good deal! I've tested this app before and I like it, though for my needs the enterprise license would be what I want. Since the price was a bit out of my range, I haven't bought it. But with today's deal..hmmm.... If you're a sysadmin for one or more systems, this is a great app and one that includes a great deal of plugin support.

I really like this app. Like others, I've tried many different monitoring solutions. I don't remember how I stumbled onto Simon (probably here), but very glad I did.

I wasn't expecting too much when I started using Simon; I had used various open source monitoring packages and figured Simon was just going to be a nice GUI to do basically the same thing. I WAS WRONG. Simon is full of nice touches and is a very polished package. The flexibility in setting up a variety of tests and customising the different notifications is simply amazing. And it is so easy to configure. The developer is also very helpful and responsive. This is by far the best software I have purchased this year (& maybe will be all year). But more to the point, it has already saved me money by giving me a notification about a misbehaving server before the problem became a serious issue.

I have been using Simon for over a year now and all I can say is what a great product, it does what it is supposed to and the support from the developer is first class, if you have any configuration problems David goes out of his way to help (even at weekends), this product gets better and better with each release, there is nothing else like it. If you want to monitor your servers and keep an eye on what is happening this product is a must have.

I've been using Simon for just over a month now and I'm very pleased with it, I currently monitor 3 servers with almost 100 pages and it works flawlessly, I tried similar programs (mostly on windows) but none of them worked as solidly as Simon. I agree with the previous post regarding support, on the couple of occasions I have e-mailed them their response has been excellent even though the problems were my own fault ( I never read the manual) Apart from a couple of features I would like to see added I cannot find anything bad to say about this program and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a program of this type.

This is an absolutely fantastic piece of software. It's easy to use, detailed and comprehensive. At present I use it to monitor 16 servers, using several services (ping, http, etc.). Testing servers via http is essential for me, since most servers would still ping after the webserver has crashed. The ability to detect changes on the page is fantastic to: it allows me to detect mySQL errors in forums and dynamic sites. Above all, the support is excellent. I've gotten in touch with Dejal many times with feature requests and (little) bug reports and they have always replied instantly, fix anything that needed fixing and trying to integrate the feature requests into the next release. Top top it all,my PC friends are jealous when they see it! :-)

I've been using Dejal Simon 2 for over a month to track client sites that I host under a reseller service and was so impressed with this solution that I recently purchased a corporate-level license. I've found it to be an invaluable tool that includes a wide feature set and an innovative interface. I've communicated with the developer, David, on several occassions and was very impressed with the level of support he provides and his openness to user feedback. Highly recommended!
