NetWorx v5.4.2 Updated

billon on 7 Oct 2015
  • 13MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Oct 2015
  • Suggested by wolssiloa

SoftPerfect NetWorx helps collect bandwidth usage data and measure the speed of your Internet or any other network connection. NetWorx can help you identify possible sources of network problems, ensure that you do not exceed the bandwidth limits specified by your ISP, or track down suspicious network activity characteristic of malicious programs/hacks.

The program allows you to monitor all your network connections or a specific network connection (such as Ethernet or PPP) only. The incoming and outgoing traffic is represented on a line chart and logged to a file, so that you can always view statistics about your daily, weekly and monthly bandwidth usage and dialup duration. Reports can be exported to a variety of formats, such as HTML, MS Word and Excel, for further analysis.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder).

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Administrator rights
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the 'portable' ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Select either 32-bit or 64-bit folder (depending on your OS)
  3. Launch networx.exe
Note: Some archive managers (notably PeaZip) don't show the 32-bit and 64-bit folders. In that case, the smaller versions of the files are the 32-bit versions.
What's new?
  • Added filter by date in Applications report and showing application names rather than paths.
  • Changed usage backup from XML to SQLite DB file and it now also includes program settings.
  • Changed the Netstat tool to a connection tree to enable real-time application monitoring.
  • Fixed monitoring apps that were monitored even if the selected network was unavailable.
  • Fixed a memory leak in connection tracking when the Ignore LAN option was used.
  • Fixed closing CSV and HTML files that stayed open when exporting a report.
  • Updated LAN traffic filtering drivers with latest compatibility fixes.

There's a bug where the "tray info" appears in a loop and the only way to remedy is to close it and restart. I also had it freeze on me and I had to kill it via the task manager; I lost about a weeks worth of statistics...

ChipsNHotSauce on 2011-06-15 20:08

...and with that said; I've tried others listed on this site and their is no comparison, this one is tops low resource/well designed interface.

Keeps getting better and better. Better than most of the paid bandwidth monitors I've tried

I look no further than Syncovery for synchronisation. The feature set is hard to beat and it seems to work better than all the others I`ve tried.

logear on 2014-02-24 20:29

I just checked out Syncovery. It's not freeware.

coolayman on 2014-04-05 21:46

I love this application ... I use it for backing up all my files ... it is very quick and much quicker than manual copy-paste by windows. I always use manual mode to preview the synchronization then running it.

abc: thanks for the response -- you're right that it doesn't allow for installation of multiple distributions as some of these tools do and I've modifed the entry. However, I didn't take directly from their website because this program will also work with non-Linux ISOs.

bzl333 on 2013-07-27 00:36

up to version 5.85 now at sourceforge.

TP109 on 2014-11-26 02:56

This is ideal for installing Linux distros. Has worked flawlessly so far. Can't say the same for similar apps.
