TinkerTool System 2TinkerTool System Release 2

TinkerTool System Release 2 is a collection of system utility features assisting you in performing advanced administration tasks on Apple Macintosh computers. The application makes use of a self-adapting user interface which automatically adjusts to the computer model and to the version of OS X you are running. All options available in the current situation are accessible via “panes”, very similar to the techniques you already know from the System Preferences application. All functions can be controlled by a single program which acts as general toolbox and First Aid assistant.  Learn more…

TinkerToolTinkerTool

TinkerTool is an application that gives you access to additional preference settings Apple has built into OS X. This allows to activate hidden features in the operating system and in some of the applications delivered with the system.

The tool makes sure that preference changes can only affect the current user. It will never change any component of the operating system, so the integrity of your system is not put at risk, and there will be no negative effect on system updates. Learn more…

System MonitorSystem Monitor

Do you like to know which parts of your computer are currently busy? Do you like to monitor the current performance of hard drives and network interfaces? Do you like to keep an eye on the number of write accesses to your precious SSD? Do you like to see which disks are currently in sleep mode? Are you a PC switcher, but you miss the flickering activity lights of disks and interfaces on your Mac? But you like to do all this unobtrusively, with typical Mac design, wasting no screen real estate? Then, System Monitor will be a very interesting app for you. Learn more…

Battery MonitorBattery Monitor

More and more computers are mobile devices nowadays. The most important prerequisite for a portable computer is a chargable battery which keeps the device powered. Batteries are not really cheap replacement parts and they are subject to wear and tear. Their lifetimes should be optimized, handling them with the necessary care. Battery Monitor is a small auxiliary application useful in this regard. It offers the following features: Display of the charge state in the Dock, display of internal battery information, capturing charge and discharge curves, bookkeeping of the aging process of the battery.

Sync CheckerSync Checker

Sync Checker is designed to check if two folders or disks are perfectly synchronized, i.e. if they have exactly the same contents. Verify if your backup and sync programs work correctly, find out where two OS X installations differ, test if your web server has received the latest updates of your web pages: There are many situations where Sync Checker can be really helpful.

If file collections are not in sync, Sync Checker will help you to browse through the differing items, analyzing exactly where a mismatch occurred, and if the differences are critical or negligible. Filter tools help you to navigate through large sets of mismatching objects. You can also create a textual report of the results which can be printed or exported.  Learn more…

NFS ManagerNFS Manager

NFS Manager is a graphical user interface to control all built-in NFS features of OS X. It can manage a whole network of OS X computers to setup a distributed NFS file system via a few simple mouse clicks.

NFS (Network File System) is the industry standard for file sharing on UNIX systems like OS X. Each OS X system can be setup as an NFS server to offer files to the network, or as an NFS client to access files shared by other computers. Different from other file sharing protocols built into OS X, NFS has no limitations in the number of users or connections concurrently active. In addition, NFS can be setup to connect to servers fully automatically (“automounting”) without any password entries being necessary. >Learn more…

PrefEditPrefEdit

PrefEdit is an application to manage nearly all aspects of the preference system contained in every OS X installation. The program consists of three components which are tightly integrated with each other: A browser and editor for the OS X preferences database, a browser and editor for OS X property list files (plists), and a browser for preference manifest files. PrefEdit was the first preferences editor ever published for Mac OS X. With its long experience and maturity, it has become one of the most advanced preference management applications for OS X available today.  Learn more..

SystemLoadSystemLoad

SystemLoad is a diagnostic application assisting you in the detection of cooling or power supply problems with Apple Macintosh computers. The tool can put a user-definable load onto one or more processors. This can help in diagnosing the following issues: problems with the cooling system or temperature sensors, problems with chirping noise caused by oscillating parts in the voltage supply circuitry of specific computer models, problems with battery units of portable computers.

HardwaremonitorHardware Monitor

Hardware Monitor is an application to read out all accessible hardware sensors in Macintosh computers released between August 2002 and October 2012. Currently more than 100 different Macintosh hardware sensors and more than 200 hard drive temperature sensors are supported. The program can display and visualize measured values in a large variety of fashions. Readings can also be stored and exported. In addition, artificial software sensors monitoring Mac OS X can be defined, and external LCD units can be controlled. The application also allows you to explore other technical data of your computer, like processor type, processor and bus frequencies, as well as manufacturing information. Learn more…

Hardwaremonitor RemoteHardware Monitor Remote

The program Hardware Monitor Remote is an add-on to the program Hardware Monitor for the Mac OS X operating system.

Hardware Monitor Remote allows you to use a hardware monitoring service on a remote Macintosh system. Other computers can contact this system via network (local area network, wireless network or the Internet) to receive readings from all available hardware sensors. In addition, the application can be used to control external LCD units on "headless" computers that are operated without display screens.  Learn more…
