SurplusMeter for Mac

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.

Developer's Description

If you have a broadband service with a monthly download limit, you may find SurplusMeter comes in handy. It measures the download and upload traffic on your Internet connection and keeps a record of your traffic volume. It gives you all kinds of useful output statistics, like daily allowance, average daily usage, accumulated surplus, and more. SurplusMeter runs invisibly in the background most of the time, but can present its interface on demand. SurplusMeter is open-source, and is released under the GNU General Public Licence.
