Find out more about the network usage of the applications and processes that connect to the Internet using this straightforward tool.
Whether you are trying to cut down the expenses, observe an unusual amount of usage of a port, discover the apps that eat most of the bandwidth or avoid congestion of traffic, monitoring the network usage comes with numerous benefits.
As the name suggests, NetworkUsageView is a tool that can help you collect hourly data about the traffic along with the apps and services that need it the most.
The application does not require installation, but rather you can decompress the archive in any desired location on your hard drive. However, it is recommended that you run it as administrator as otherwise, it is unable to access the SRUDB.dat file, as it is commonly locked by default on most systems.
The interface is designed as a list that displays various information you may find useful for monitoring traffic. Therefore, along with the record ID, you can preview the timestamp, app name and description, user name, user SID, network adapter (where applicable) along with the bytes sent and received.
You will be happy to learn that the program does not only work with the database stored in your system but also with remote computers and external SRUDB.dat database. Then again, you should keep in mind that loading the data from an external database solely works if the file on the remote computer is not locked.
The app allows you to generate HTML reports with all information grabbed or only the one that interests you from the View menu. Alternatively, you can save the network usage information to XML, plain text or CSV via command-line.
Regardless of whether you are working to improve budgeting and forecasting for traffic metrics or perhaps want to detect fraud, NetworkUsageView could come in handy.
