Data usage programs

I've been trying to find a good Windows based piece of software that records and measures the amount of downloads and uploads I use monthly.

I was thinking something open source but most open source software has hideous interfaces and I like non command line base software to have good aesthetics... If you're going to put GUI into your software, do a good job or don't do it all is my opinion.

But anyway, can anyone recommend any programs they use to keep track of how much bandwidth you use per month that you find useful? Maybe a browser extension or a desktop gadget? Thanks.

Any decent internet service provider should already provide you with those statistics somewhere on/from your account page. If they're not giving you that information, you should probably find a less dubious provider.

You could use Sniffer-Tools like Wireshark.
There are some easier tools, but they are lacking in functions. Wireshark is the software you need. Cool

They do however, I wanted a 3rd party software that updates in real time. My ISP's website isn't a reliable source as pathetic as that may sound... thankfully their services aren't on par with their lacking website.

I've never used sniffer tools before aside from playing around with aircrack on the linux terminal (if that's even considered a sniffing tool... I don't know) but I'll give Wireshark a shot. Very Happy

I think Bandwidth Meter 2 is one of the best apps for that purpose. Hope u love this app.
