network activity monitor wanted
« on: July 01, 2009, 07:50:29 PM »
a friend of mine (a serial downloader) is looking for a tool that will 'log' his net traffic, ie which app's are generating traffic, and how much (up and down)

Personally I have no use for anything like this so I'm of limited assistance. 

That said, we've tried several network 'meters', but none of them show traffic by application (only as a cumulative figure).

any suggestions?

thanks for the tip, but both the mentioned apps look (to me) like network hardware monitoring/management tools rather than traffic meters

what he's looking for (in his words) -

What I was trying to identify was what was actually chewing up my downloads when I didn't have any torrents queued to download. It may be torrent handling for uploading or something else but I can't tell as nothing seems to track the data going through the firewall and relates it back to the function generating the traffic

If not, I'm sure someone will chime in with an answer to suit.
