measure monthly data transfer for internet?


I was just kinda curiuos.. it might be easy but I don't know how to do it. How would I calculate the total amount of data my cable modem recieves? Is there some type of program? I just wanna know so I can see how many freakin gigs pass through my modem every month.

thanks.

Yes it can be done but, all your traffic would have to pass thru one computer so you could measure it. I used to do this before I got a cable/dsl router. It depends on your setup. If you use a router you will have to measure on each machine. If you use one machine as a router/gateway you would only have to check one machine. I used a program from "Analog-x".

best program I've seen for it is DU Meter. Great program.. stats on current uploading/downloading, stopwatch (allows you to run a stopwatch & see how much data is sent / recieved in that time), daily/weekly/monthly totals, and projections. If your on dialup (or pppoe), it'll track how long your dialled up over those periods aswell.

If I've translated this guy's post correctly, he's saying that there's a way of getting Windows to do the tracking. However, it will only work so long as you don't get disconnected or reboot your computer, and there's no way of resetting the stats at the beginning of the month.

In 2k and XP, it keeps track of the amount of data sent across a connection, in the connection status (Start/Settings/Network & Dialup Connections/Your Connection). The settings are only for the current open connection, so if you disconnect, or reboot, the statistics reset to zero. Best to get DU Meter or NSL.

I use Netstat Live by AnalogX. When I started using it, I was surprised that I was downloading about 8gb of data per month.

I was a long-time user of AnalogX before I stumbled upon DU Meter. NetStatLive hasn't been updated in ages - it definitely lacks the finer statistics that DU Meter can give you.

It's always nice to compare your download/upload from month to month, week to week, day to day, etc...
