HornWare: AFS Monitor

HomeSharePointsPicture NamerSharePoints AutoMounterFAQForums


AFS Monitor is an application used to monitor current connections to the local AppleFileServer (AFS). It shows who is currently connected as well as how many files and directories the currently connected users have created and deleted. The dock icon also shows the number of currently connected users.

Download and Operational Instructions

There are 3 quick steps to get up and running.
  1. Download AFS Monitor
    1.0.2 (Mac OS X 10.4.x)
    1.0.1 (Mac OS X 10.3.x)
    1.0.0 (Mac OS X 10.2.x)
  2. Copy AFS Monitor to a convenient folder on your harddrive. I would suggest your Utilities folder.
  3. Launch AFS Monitor. AFS Monitor will then tell you how many users are currently logged in.

By default, the display is updated every 5 seconds. This results in less than 1% CPU usage on a Beige G3 333 MHz. If you would like to adjust the update interval, just go to the preferences and enter in the number of seconds between updates.

If a message comes up saying the that logging is not enabled, the please download SharePoints and go to the AppleFileServer properties tab and enable logging. After enabling logging, remember to update the AppleFileServer properties.

Enjoy and you use this at your own risk.
