Editors' Review

+

SurplusMeter--formerly known as NetTracker--keeps a close eye on your bandwidth use. This utility lets you set a bandwidth limit, a start day of the month, and a connection type (such as PPP Modem or Network Card).

SurplusMeter also calculates a daily allowance and reconfigures that depending on how much you've actually used for the month. The interface is simple and uncluttered, but it also lacks the alarms and graphs found in similar Windows apps. Progress bars help track the days left in the month, the download megabyte count, and the total downloaded and uploaded, and you can easily make manual changes. SurplusMeter should appeal to any users suffering under bandwidth caps, or who just want to know how much they're downloading and uploading.

"Simply Doesn't Work"

June 12, 2014  |  By myusernamewasalreadytaken

 |  Version: SurplusMeter 2.0.3

Pros

Seems simple enough

Cons

Doesn't work on OSX 10.8.5

Summary

The only data that you see is the mathematic calculations when you change the "download limit" and then it populates various "daily allowance" fields and such... but it never tells you how much you've actually used. I've used this product for nearly two months, and there's no data. Complete waste of time.

May 20, 2014  |  By norf123

 |  Version: SurplusMeter 2.0.3

Pros

Worked well to monitor.

Cons

Doesn't work despite the claim that it works on new macs. I finally deleted the old copies and downloaded new ones. Once it opened there was No active monitoring anywhere of anything on my new Macbook..

Summary



Updated on May 21, 2014

Ok. It is working like it used to after going to the skoobysoft web site and downloading it from there. I would give it 5 stars now.

"Good monitor of usage for those on limited broadband"

January 16, 2010  |  By pd.thomas

 |  Version: SurplusMeter 2.0.3

Pros

Gives useful stats about your usage, easy to install and it works on a Mac!!

Cons

The only thing I don't like is the inability to have the window open over other windows even when not the active app. Activity monitor and Itunes have this feature

Summary

I use Airport for my broadband connection and networking to my other Macs and a PC, it would be handy if the program could discriminate between internet traffic and network traffic. I've only used it for a week but so far it works unobtrusively in the background does not noticeably affect speed.
