Editors' Review

+

It's not going to win any design awards, but this handy program for monitoring your PC's bandwidth usage offers a nice set of features. BitMeter's floating graph with simple text displays for real-time downloads and uploads is easy to follow. You can customize the display's color and transparency.

Considering its size, BitMeter provides an impressive amount of options and information. You can view summaries of network activity with hourly, daily, and monthly breakdowns, or receive audio notifications that can be set by transfer size and direction. The built-in calculator is useful for computing the speed and size of download and upload activities. You can create automatic or manual backups of the program to easily restore history and settings, and there's an ISP Restrictions configuration panel that can configured with a minimum of hassle.

This freebie is easy enough for any user looking for a simple and effective tool for monitoring network activity.

"Does a good job, but affected by sleep and hibernate"

July 10, 2010  |  By sonofacarpenter

 |  Version: BitMeter 2 3.5.9.32260

Pros

Good product for monitoring bandwidth usage.

Cons

I get a spike of about 150MB of "usage" every time windows (7 32 bit) wakes from sleep or hibernate modes. Unsure why this is happening. I have a monthly usage limit and this severely hampers my ability to track the total usage.

"Inaccurate reports mar this app"

June 27, 2010  |  By ARRC

 |  Version: BitMeter 2 3.5.9.32260

Pros

Like the stopwatch feature. Small footprint and easy to configure. Logs are great.

Cons

Upload and Download info was reversed on my dial-up connection. Seemed to also be inaccurate in reporting. Shows many MB of upload data and maybe 500 bytes of download for a four hour period of use.

Summary

Seems to work fine for broadband but doesn't seem to work for dial-up. Nice small package with some nice features but marred by the bad data for dial-up.

"May not work with Windows 7 - depending on your system"

June 20, 2010  |  By lost_relic

 |  Version: BitMeter 2 3.5.9.32260

Pros

Looks great, light weight, small, simple for monitoring network usage on a per-machine basis.

Cons

Couldn't get it to work at all on Win7 64bit with my system - it displays 0.0 up/down and never changes. There are at least a few others with this problem. The devs state "we can't recreate the bug, so there isn't anything we can do". It's a shame.
