To Configure Watchman Monitoring to Monitor MacPractice


To configure the Monitoring Client to monitor a specific application such as MacPractice, open the PreferencePane on the computer running the application.

In the General tab:

  • Check the Warn if Missing box for the MacPracticeData and the Data Storage volumes
  • Check the box for Prevent Missing Volume warnings by mounting volumes at the Login Window



 

 

Additionally, we have released an open-source product called BackupMinder which can monitor backup activity, trim old backups, and keep a monthly archive. 

With BackupMinder in place, Watchman Monitoring will send an alert if backups aren't happening on a regular basis.
