Hi,

What would be really useful is for the tray icon to show a graph (and therefore see history) as well. Now with the bars I can only see the current download/upload rate, but not how this has changed of the last 10 intervals (say last 10 seconds). Some other apps do this, although I prefer BitMeter II. Cristal Internet Meter was one of the apps showing a graph in the tray icon.

my two cents :D

Wouter.

There is one feature from DU-Meter i am missing: Average readout on the numeric values. It could be made as "rolling average" of the last 30 secs, or even better adjustable. Otherwise it´s a nice little program :D

Hi - you can see averages by enabling the Stopwatch feature and choosing the values that you want, see here: http://codebox.no-ip.net/bitmeter2help/settings_stopwatch.jsp

I would like to see user selectable rate bars along the side of the graph similar to what is shown below:



Ideally, the number of bars would be selectable and labeled with their values.

I totally second the need for exclusion of LAN traffic. I'm trying to measure my actual uploads/downloads to the internet, and the GBs of back and forth to my own computers is throwing the numbers off.

+1 vote for a way to filter by IP range and/or report certain IP ranges separately. Sounds like this feature would apply to several of the posts here. Thanks - very useful tool!

Like a few others have requested, we need the ability to filter internet traffic from the local network traffic. We have a windows home server with all our media and backups and so there is a lot of traffic to/from WHS. This is all included in the total which skews it. And since I have Comcast as my ISP (now with a 250 GB cap per month), I have a new interest in accurately capturing my internet traffic :)

I've tried just about every combination of selecting/deselecting the Adapters (very flexible!) but cannot get a combination that only measures internet traffic. Other than that, this is a super application and has exactly the features I was looking for!

Great little utility. I was using Netgraph2, which is very similar but kept crashing and got no feedback from the author (Bulgarian!). Now using yours but would like to see one big improvement. Any chance you could get the window to remember where it was the last time it ran and to park itself back in the same place the next time it opens?

Hi - thanks for your comments - sounds like something isn't right on your machine though, Bitmeter should save its position automatically each time you close it and should reappear in the same place next time it starts up. Any chance you have an over-zealous AV/Anti Spyware app running maybe? Bitmeter needs to be able to update its settings file for the position restore to work, I would check that this isn't being blocked by some security feature you have in place.

Could the data, when presented numerically, always be in the same measurement (either MB or kB) and decimal aligned?

Thank you.

I was looking at the BitMeter hourly statistics grid, and noticed that nearly 600 megabytes were downloaded at a time that I was asleep! I can't think of any program/application that should have done that, is there some way to keep track of which program is doing the downloading? I had a virus infection recently, that I thought was caught and cleaned by my anti-virus program, but now I'm wondering and worrying!

Some people have encountered a bug where Bitmeter shows large upload/download volumes when a PC goes into suspend/power save mode, so that might be what you are seeing. As far as tracking down which program was responsible I'm afraid Bitmeter cant help you, but if you are worried then I would suggest installing a decent firewall (Comodo is good) and only granting access to programs that you trust.

Thanks, I saw the bug report after I posted this, and added my two cents to that thread.

I do have Sunbelt Personal Firewall installed, but I was worried because of a virus incident that I had recently.

Rob, would it be possible to enhance the display functionality so that BitMeter remembers where it was last positioned on the screen and restarts in that position? Currently the requirement to manually edit the BitMeterSettings.xml file and labouriously experiment by trial and error to get it in the right place is a bit of a pain.
