oWatchdog is an unique program that continuously checks network devices like routers, servers, websites and oPlc (Mac Application).
IP-devices can be checked using a ping request, websites by using an URL request and oPlc by using special commands.
The interval and response timeout can be set as well as the number of retries that are allowed before activating an alarm.
Add logfile (tab separated values).

Main window shows up … and that’s it. You can click on the “start” button, and it changes to a “stop” button … and nothing. None of the “checkmark” options are enabled (greyed out). The manual doesn’t have a “troubleshooting” section. “Support” link is just a page with an ad for this app. Dangerously close to being a scam (I won’t say it definitely is, as I didn’t try the email link - the simple functionality this app claims to have just isn’t worth the extra effort.)
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
