What if you want to monitor your network and bandwidth usage on a per user, per app basis? For that you’ll need Rubbernet. It’s a real-time monitoring tool which gives you instant graphic data on which users and apps are using the network and how much bandwidth they use.
Rubbernet pulls information from your internet router so you can see which apps are using the network, and how much the network is being used.
The break down of network usage on a per app basis is revealing as you can see which apps that don’t get used much are still using the network.
Rubbernet can monitor all the computers on your home or office network from one Mac. Setup is easy and mostly automatic. And, it doesn’t require an expensive network router with SNMP monitoring because it captures data from the Mac.
There’s a try-before-you-buy option, which is useful as Rubbernet is not priced in the same league as PeakHour or NetUse Traffic Monitor.
