Peep aims to represent network information in real-time (and therefore eliminate searching through large logs of information to find problems) by using sound to represent the vast amount of available information about network status and to help identify network problems and irregularities. Diagnostics are made not only based on single network events but whether the network sounds 'normal.' Peep's primary focus is network monitoring, but its monitoring mechanism is general enough that a Peep system can be adapted to monitor just about anything. Peep includes server software, various client utilities, and a client library which can also be used to create new clients. The latest development release (0.5.0rc1) features a complete rewrite of the Peep software, both server and clients, from the ground up.
