Uses little memory
Does what it claimsConscannot measure network usage by IP or MAC addressSummaryThis is a great tool for monitoring exactly how much data you are using on a given machine. But not a good tool for monitoring the usage of each device on a network unless they all happen to be windows computers running networx. I have satellite internet and we are limited to 425 mb per day and this is shared by 7 adults. We go over the limit from time and time and everyone denies it was them so I've been looking for a tool to identify the usage of every device on the network, by IP or MAC addresss. This is a great piece of free software with no ads or lame "trial periods" but it doesn't do what I hoped. Quoting from the makers of the software, from this URL (https://www.softperfect.com/products/networx/manual/?lang=English):
"Monitoring of multiple computers
NetWorx can only monitor traffic on the computer where it is installed. If you want to monitor traffic on multiple computers, you basically have two options:
Install NetWorx on every computer in your network. This can only be done if all your computers are running Windows. While NetWorx can only monitor traffic on the computer it is installed on, the instances of NetWorx can talk to each other so that each instance is synchronised and shows the actual overall usage. In this case, devices like iPads, Smart TV or mobile phones will not be metered. This synchronisation needs to be turned on in the advanced settings.
If your router supports so-called SNMP or UPnP protocol, you can monitor all traffic via your router. This however will not give you a per-device usage breakdown and the monitoring computer must be continuously on to poll the router and collect usage data. See the Router Monitoring page for more details."
I'm left wondering why all modern routers don't have this as a standard option in the router interface. Seems like fairly standard info most people would want to have.

Relatively easy to navigate through options and settings
I love the variety of reports, graphs, and information it provides
The best part is being able to monitor individual program bandwidth usage!ConsThe only thing I'm having trouble with is being able to monitor the other computers I have connected to mine at the same time monitoring the applications. It only lets you do one or the other. Unless it's just a setting I haven't figured out yet.SummaryI've got 3g internet and have a bandwidth limit of 12GB.
I've been recently going over my limit and didn't understand why. (I wasn't using the internet any different than I have in the past.) I did some research and found this program.
I LOVE it!
I'm able to monitor my usage and was able to figure out which programs were hogging my bandwidth.
It turns out my anti-virus (Avast) had added a bunch of monitoring that I didn't need and was using more than 2X what I was using with browsers alone.
Plus, I was able to figure out that I needed to limit my browsers' settings to not auto load videos and scripts.
I'm now able to stay way under my limit again! :)Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

I won't name the company but if you have copper wire that used to be Bell Telephone, then I don't need to say more. This program gives you a daily/weekly/monthly usage. Better, it lets you plug in a dollar amount for usage. Uses little memory and runs in the tray like it wasn't there. I highly recommend it.ConsNone. My software found no rogue bugs. I call it good to go.SummaryA program that is zipped but comes in 32 and 64 bit when you unzip it. I think many frugal users will find this a diamond in the rough. Or a best kept secret. I give it a 10 for it's ability to run in the background and keep a log you may use to haggle with the vendor you have now.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?

It gives me just the information I need.ConsI have v5.2.6 and am looking for v5.2.7. This page says it's v5.2.7, but the download gives you 5.2.6.
I wish there was some way to monitor ALL the traffic going through my router, not just at the specific computer level.SummaryRecommended for easy bandwidth monitoring.Reply to this review Was this review helpful?
