It’s nice to know how much bandwidth your sucking down, especially if your in a situation where your available bandwidth is on the limited side or you need to maximize what you have.
It’s easy to monitor your total bandwidth, but what about monitoring individual apps?
Rubbernet now makes it possible.
You can keep an eye on all network-enabled apps running on your Mac with Rubbernet.
Know the exact state of your live network connections, as Rubbernet gives you real-time monitoring. On the sidebar, you’ll see which apps are active on your network. When they become idle, the icon dims, so you know the traffic has stopped.
App Bandwidth Usage
Rubbernet breaks it down. You can quickly find the apps that are connecting to certain servers without you knowing.
I love all of this real-time display. Rubbernet displays a real-time chart of download and upload transfer rates for all your active apps. Network usage visualized! Quickly figure out what your network hogs are.
Multiple users? No problem. Rubbernet can handle it. It automatically assigns sending and receiving connections by user.
Even with all this real-time action, Rubbernet keeps a history of per-app bandwidth usage. I like it!
If you need to keep an accurate pulse on your Mac’s bandwidth usage, Rubbernet looks like a good solution. You can download it from Rubbernet and take them up on their 15-day free trial.
Rubbernet will set you back $44, so I would recommend giving it a try first.
I could see this as an excellent tool for those who have tight bandwidth usage caps like Canada.
What are you using to monitor your bandwidth usage? Do you even care about how much your apps are using?
