Re: Try a Monitoring App to See Your Network Activity

A comment to Katie's announcement: GlassWire will not monitor traffic on your network, only on the machine on which it is installed. So, if you have a couple of machines co0nnected to your network that consume traffic from the HN service, install GlassWire on each machine to see the total usage.

Why do you suggest these instead of the status meter? Do they do more than the status meter does?

Re: Try a Monitoring App to See Your Network Activity

The status meter will show how much data has been used, system wide, including all networked computers and devices.

Glasswire will pinpoint just what program or process used the data.

(note: Glasswire will only record data usage on the single computer on which it has been installed)

Some Glasswire info but perhaps helpful in overall scope:

















The point here is:

A single computer  has 65,536 comm ports:

Of these, port 80 is visible to a user when a Internet Browser is open .... it is "apparent".

If a user has an email client program installed like Outlook or Thunderbird, among many others, two more are used for incoming and outgoing email duties. Again, these are apparent because the email client program is up and running ...

That leaves 65,533 comm ports that a novice user is not aware of and has no ready visible means to see or know about.

That is a lot of potential "leaks".

Just say'in.

   

Edit:
Some of the above info relating to free time and refill times are for HN9000 daily refill legacy plans and was prepared for another user.
