If you feel suspicious about what’s happening in your network router or you want to identify which application consumes the most network bandwidth, try GlassWire’s network traffic monitoring software for free.
This tool helps you visualize your current and past network activity by application and geographic location, and it displays this information on a colorful graph, which looks like a wave. You can see all activities in your network within 5 minutes up to a month. Network traffic is also shown in realtime, so you can watch the activity scroll past as you use your PC. Visit GlassWire website to download the network monitoring utility.
Plus! Useful Security Features
Aside from visualizing internet traffic, this free tool includes some useful security features.
GlassWire reveals hosts that are known threats and unusual application changes and then alerts you to the problem so you can investigate. It also has a built-in firewall that reveals all your network activity so you can see what your computer is doing behind the scenes. The firewall displays current and past servers your computer is communicating with so you can spot potential threats and block them, if necessary.
It can also track network activity while your PC is on idle, so you will be able to see what’s happening during this time. Now all you have to do is go back in the past and see exactly what happened in detail.
If your Internet Service Provider controls your monthly bandwidth, GlassWire can alert you if you exceed in that limit. It will also show you precisely which device and apps are using up all of that precious bandwidth. Just look under the Usage tab for a long list of devices on your network and the amount of bandwidth they have been using.
With this tool, it’s not necessary to go through confusing router logs to see where potential problems lie. All of that information is available in a clean, colorful graph for your viewing pleasure.
