The "Application Crashes" panel

    When you click on the "Application Crashes" tab, a panel appears with controls for activating Rebound!'s application crash detection.

Monitor for crashes in any application
(Mac OS 8.6-9.x only)

    If this box is checked, Rebound! will monitor all running applications for crashes. This will detect any time an application disappears, causing an "application has unexpectedly quit" error message to appear.

Monitor application timers

    If this box is checked, Rebound! will monitor applications which include Rebound! support.

    Note: In order for Rebound! to monitor an application's timer, the application must have support built in. Many popular server applications already include Rebound! support, and more are added regularly. A current list can be found at our web site, http://www.sophisticated.com/.

When An Application Fails
(Mac OS 8.6-9.x only)

    This section of the "Application Crashes" panel contains a pair of radio buttons that lets you choose how Rebound! will attempt to recover from crashes.

    Restart system immediately
    If this button is selected, Rebound! will restart the computer when an application fails.

    Attempt to relaunch application
    If this button is selected, Rebound! will attempt to relaunch the application that failed. If the application continues to fail (often indicating something else wrong within the system), Rebound! will resort to restarting the system.

    The first value is the number of failures that will cause Rebound! to restart the system. The second value (and associated pop-up menu) is the interval in which these repeated failures must occur before Rebound! will resort to restarting the system.

Active application timers

    The rest of the "Application Crashes" panel contains a list of running applications with Rebound! support and their status.

    The second column shows the current value of the timer for each application. This timer counts down each second until the next time it is updated by the application.
