SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager
SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager is a bandwidth limiter which you can use to manage your Internet connection.
The application comes with two components, a bandwidth control service that is used to analyze the traffic and impose restrictions and a management console for configuration. SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager displays a comprehensive interface and allows you to easily create and edit new quotas which you can use to set rules to all the computer users.
When adding a new rule you get to set its name, protocol, rate limit, network interface, source and destination addresses, as well as a tracking mode and penalties. These are also displayed in the main window of the manager while it is running allowing you to constantly be aware of any changes that occur. The application can be used to monitor incoming and outgoing traffic or both at the same time.
SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager is very easy to use. Any filter can be edited with a simple double-click, allowing you to constantly update the filters according to your needs. It also supports complex rules that enable you to monitor a number of IP and MAC addresses.
For every rule you create, the application provides graphs for general usage that display the outgoing and ingoing traffic for the last 30 seconds. You also get to view the total sent and received data values. In case you need to see the entire activity from a day, SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager can display it for you grouped by rule and stream.
The utility is capable of sending email notifications to your address or any other you set. SoftPerfect Bandwidth Manager can notify you if a transfer rate limit changes, a quota is exceeded or reset.
