MacServices Alerts:

brings an enhanced level of proactive oversight to the systems running your business or personal computer. With our installed software agent, we can discover potential issues before they lead to unplanned downtime !

Alerts will help warn you about:

  • Bad or failing hard drives
  • Local and offsite backup errors
  • Malware infections
  • Other hardware problems
  • Battery capacity and health issues

Alerts is Part of our complete backup system and computer maintance program.  Download and contact us for more information. View Sample Report

Alerts before it breaks:

Our background agent reports all relevant metrics to determine system health: hardware consistency, malware presence, backup completion, as well as the status of popular 3rd party applications like Backblaze, CrashPlan, Daylite and Kerio. MacServices Monitoring collects all data behind-the-scenes without disturbing the user.


Alerts cares about privacy:

Additionally, our platform excludes all personal data — only technical statistics are reported to our datacenter creating a valuable warning system for potential failures.


No single malware detection software can find all threats. Watchman Monitoring helps out by providing an additional layer of malware checking to your existing solution.

Backup Systems

It’s never a matter of “if” your hard drive will fail, but “when”. That’s why it’s so important that you not only backup but regularly check if that the backup is being completed successfully. Luckily, with Watchman Monitoring, we do all the checking so you don’t have to. We will alert you if we see the backups not being performed as expected.


Keeping a computer running at it’s peak performance is easy with Watchman Monitoring. We’ll alert you to productivity-robbing issues such as failing laptop batteries, kernel panics, faulty RAM, unscheduled reboots, and even failed power-on self-tests (POST) which usually go unnoticed.


Running low on disk space can happen suddenly and when it does, it has real potential to corrupt a system and cause data loss. Watchman Monitoring can alert you well before that ever happens. We’ll also alert you to any disk input/output (I/O) errors (a precursor to a drive failure), boot disk selection changes, false mounts, and more.


Slow network performance can be caused by things like poor cable quality, failing network hardware, or even your ISP having a bad day. We’ll help narrow down the cause by alerting you when there’s an excessive number of network errors. We can even let you know when a computer’s IP address changes.


More often than not, what defines a server is the software that runs on it. Watchman Monitoring checks on that software to make sure it’s operating correctly and will report critical information such as availability, utilization, license expirations, proper backup functionality, and more.


We’ll help you avoid costly downtime due to RAID failures from Apple and SoftRaid by warning you at the earliest signs of trouble. Combined with our world-class backup monitoring you can rest assured knowing your data is secure.
