BWMeter is a powerful bandwidth meter, monitor network connection, traffic controller and firewall for Windows PC, which measures displays, and controls all traffic to/from your computer or on your network. Unlike other products, it can analyze the data packets (where they come from, where they go, which port and protocol they use). This makes it possible to distinguish between local and internet traffic for example.
Users who want to know exactly how much bandwidth they use will definitely find BWMeter a very handy tool, as the application provides not only a detailed analysis of both the network and the Internet connection but also some other great features.
Although it was initially designed to give you an overview over the network and Internet traffic, BWMeter offers you much more than that as it includes tools to control network access, graphs, and even alerts and notifications.
The application thus has tons of features, so it could be a bit difficult to get along with it if you’re not an experienced user. Well, yes and no, because the interface has been designed to make the whole job a lot easier, so features are nicely organized in the main window.
It allows you to set up filters for either the local network or the Internet, configure speed limits, and stop traffic or enable download and upload restrictions.
What we liked the most however where the graphs generated by the app that can be updated at a user-defined interval and can be fully customized with a different position and size, various display units, and fractional digits, but also with a new visual style.
This software can also be used for traffic control by setting a speed limit for all kinds of connections or restricting access to applications to certain internet sites. It creates statistics for all computers in your network, measuring and displaying all LAN traffic as well as download/upload from the internet. You can even define filters that show your transfer with certain internet addresses (e.g. to see how much data you download from your favorite news server).
It is ideal for home users to get an overview of how much bandwidth they use, as well as small to large businesses, where one computer can control the traffic and maintain the statistics of downloaded/uploaded data of all computers in the network. The product is easy to configure and offers a rich set of options and features for beginners as well as experts and network administrators. The app is based on WinpkFilter network drivers.
