Watchman Monitoring + Addigy Integration = Game Changer.Published on 15 Nov 2017 by Addigy
Touchless Monitoring and Remediation
Watchman Monitoring and Addigy provide a game changing set of monitoring, remediation, and management capabilities for Macs. Watchman Monitoring has solidified itself as the premier monitoring solution which allows administrators to monitor a wide range of Mac issues. However, knowing about the problem is just the first step in the management workflow and there are very few tools that can fix these Mac issues effectively without needing to remote control the machine. That's where the Watchman Monitoring and Addigy Integration comes in. Items monitored by Watchman Monitoring can be remediated automatically through the use of Addigy and once the issue has been fixed, Watchman Monitoring will immediately retest those items and close the alarms. No need to remote control and no need to manually run commands.

Now we can start adding Watchman Monitoring objects and remediate the issues. A simple low disk space event can easily become an emergency item when the computer grinds to a hault, but doing the simple tasks (like purging the /tmp folder which gets erased on each reboot) can greatly reduce the reactive daily issues:
Make sure you leverage the power of these two Mac platforms together. You’ll agree, it’s a game changer.
