Down2Home is an easy to use bandwidth monitoring tool that helps you keep an eye on Internet traffic, creating detailed reports with 2D and 3D graphs.
Although it may sound like a very difficult to use program, Down2Home is actually an intuitive tool and the number of features isn't quite overwhelming.
It places an icon in the Windows System Tray and double clicking it opens a dedicated window that provides real time download and upload traffic statistics.
If you click on “Volume Statistics” however a whole new world opens in front of you. The application shows traffic details based on some user-defined settings, so you can see volume per day, per week, per month or per year, but also the average speed for the same intervals.
As we've already mentioned, you can choose between two different graph types, namely 2D and 3D, each with multiple customization options.
What's more, you can export the logs to CSV format by opening the “Options” screen, the same place where you can find configuration settings concerning the network adapters, volume warnings and main window appearance preferences.
Down2Home works flawlessly on all Windows versions and doesn't slow down the system at all, without requiring administrator privileges when launched on Windows 7. A help file is also available, so make sure you check the dedicated section in case you need assistance on one of the built-in features.
All things considered, Down2Home is an interesting way to monitor network traffic, providing easy to configure options and professional-looking graphs to show the collected information.
