Home Page Release Notes Screen Shots License:
Shareware; $10

Current Version: 3.9.5 (December 24, 2005) / 4.5.2 (February 8, 2010)

Net Monitor is an inexpensive shareware application written for Mac OS X (10.1 or later) that graphs network interface throughput in a floating window, the Dock or the Menu Bar. Very simple! As of version 2, the software incorporated the functionality of the previously-separate PPP Monitor application by the same author.

Version 4.5.2 - available for Mac OS X 10.4 and later only - makes the following changes from the previous release (3.9.5 is still available for older Macs):

  • PPP - The system's user/password dialog box is no longer displayed when connection is initiated by the program, unless this option is selected in the preferences.

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
