Note
NetTraffic is a worthy alternative to now commercial NetWorx.
I think that NetTraffic should be in the database.
Downloading NetTraffic via download managers may result in corrupted downloads, I recommend downloading it via browser.

Oh yeah this is great. I have a bunch of junk running in the background and I *need* to know when I'm hitting the top end of my bandwidth.

I strongly recommend turning off the automatic "scale maximum of data rate" since the program auto adjusts its view to high or low bandwidth usage. However, if I'm not transmitting anything I really just want a bunch of tiny bumps at the bottom of the window (or emptiness).

Thanks to billon for adding it to the database.

Wishlist

* Optionally auto-adjust to the upper cap of available speed but remain there stay there (i.e. expand the view to contain more data but never shrink down).

Looks good. Particularly like that you can select the interface to display bandwidth from.

Apart from Windows' included Resource Manager traffic view I sometimes use a network graph program that's portable called TCP Monitor Plus, but didn't create a thread for it at the time since I wasn't sure how much interest there would be for it. Can't even remember where I found it but always liked the look of the animated graph. Very 80s-cool (English language included but not seen in this screenshot):

Well that's weird. I originally thought I'd discovered it here but when searching the DB it displayed the error of no results found. Yet searching again now it does show as a forum topic result. I guess my thought of submitting it must have been mixed with some other program I thought similarly about.

The site search program is unfortunately a little behind in terms of modern search engines so I've had a lot of similar issues. Still it has it's uses as I can usually find what I"m looking for (assuming I spell it right).

customizable tray icon
Such a small thing but I think that's awesome. Great addition. Will likely have this running on one of my machines who's network status is often suspect.

Another handy tool for quickly checking your network status :

Rob Keir's lean and mean IP2 (14KB *.exe :wink: )

will display the currently allocated WAN IP address, ascertaining network connection is up and kicking

Loving this program. Already it's:

* Helped me keep track of network connections over a limited bandwidth setup
* Diagnose issues with a remote backup that was misbehaving
* In trying to maximize power on a laptop, keep transfers to an absolute minimum.

I check both the taskbar icon and the small window view frequently.

It's been a long time since a portable program came along that's going to be part of my standard setup. Great add.
