The macOS Agent makes network monitoring on Mac easier than ever.

With a simplified installation, you can install, onboard, and begin monitoring network performance within minutes.

Obkio offers several Monitoring Agent types (all with the same features) including Windows, Mac, Linux, Docker, Hyper-V, VMware, Hardware Appliances and Public Monitoring Agents.

Like all other Obkio Monitoring Agents, the macOS Agent monitors network performance by continuously exchanging synthetic traffic with other Monitoring Agents to monitor network performance.

Synthetic traffic is light and non-evasive, and requires no packet capture of real user data, which protects user’s privacy. Agents exchange synthetic traffic every 500ms to give you real-time performance updates.

3. End-to-End Visibility
