New software designed to monitor the health of your Mac, Check Up, is available now.

Developed by app4mac, the software can monitor local and remote Macs (include the capacity to monitor remote machines using the internet), watching processor, memory, disk and network usage.

Like Apple's own Activity Monitor, Check Up 1.0 offers detailed information about all running processes and lets users pause or terminate these at any time.

The software is also capable of warning users of hard drive failures and can check systems to ensure sufficient memory is installed in order to run applications simultaneously.

Check Up also offers tools to repair authorisations or to run Mac OS X maintenance scripts.

A free preview version of the $49 software is available.
