NetWorx - NetWorx is a simple and free, yet powerful tool that helps you objectively evaluate your bandwidth situation. You can use it to 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 don't exceed the bandwidth limits specified by your ISP, or track down suspicious network activity characteristic of Trojan horses and hacker attacks. The program allows you to monitor all your network connections or a specific network connection (such as Ethernet or PPP) only.
The software also features a system of highly customisable visual and sound alerts. You can set it up to alert you when the network connection is down or when some suspicious activity, such as unusually heavy data flow, occurs. It can also automatically disconnect all dialup connections and shut down the system. 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. The reports can be exported to a variety of formats, such as HTML, MS Word and Excel, for further analysis.
With NetWorx you can:
* Find out and monitor how fast your Internet connection is.
* Find out and monitor how much Internet traffic you consume.
* Verify whether your ISP charges your Internet usage fairly.
* Detect a suspicious network activity on your computer.
* Perform simple network tests such as ping and trace route.
* Be notified about excessive Internet usage.

We use Networx to monitor bandwidth usage of essential web resources. Works perfectly for us in this capacity.

Great tool for measuring network and internet activity, easy to use. Especially handy because LAN traffic can be excluded to show internet use only.

Works great - but I need a tool that I can follow a single application for bandwidth usage.

Thank you for this great utility. It is running flawlessly on Vista 64, requires minimal overhead, and should be very helpful in monitoring usage stats.

NetWorx 4.9.6 had everything advertised and ran smoothly. people on my computer sometimes go way over the expected level so I use the 'Quota' item. I use the speed meter to see how the internets going, ETC. this is a recommended program for everyone i say :-)!!!!

Got what i needed
I have NetWorx installed in a W2K system and it is delivering exactly what i needed from this utility. A daily and accumulated tracking of my downloading and uploading stats so that i won't accidentally exceed my ISP's 20 Gb limit and incur extra charges. The only quirk is that the taskbar's popup, displaying TransferRate, always displays the same wrong reading of 0-in/55-out bytes/s BUT, i still love this app for giving me exactly and accurantly what i specifically wanted from it. -Thanks

A very useful routine
I have installed this on two computers in my home network to monitor usage and performance. I am very pleased with the performance. My grandson's online gaming and video clip usage are much easier to control and monitor enabling me to stay within my ISP's download limits. The programme is unobtrusive and easy to use.

Very usefull application and also free
AT&T and Comcast and others will soon start charging penalties and even cancelling customer accounts for exceeding their bandwidth usage limits. This excellent program lets you easily monitor your bandwidth use so you can stay under the usage limits.
