BitMeter OS is a free, open-source, bandwidth monitor that works on Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. BitMeter OS keeps track of how much you use your internet/network connection, and allows you to view this information in a variety of ways.
|BitMeterOS is a bandwidth meter, it allows you to visually monitor your internet connection by displaying a scrolling graph that shows your upload and download speed over time.
BitMeterOS will be available for a number of different operating systems including Windows, Linux and Mac OSX. Architecturally this new version of BitMeter is very different to the olderBitMeter 2, the main differences are:
No dependency on the .NET framework, the core components of BitMeter OS are written in C
Much smaller footprint - it uses less memory, requires less CPU time, and the executable files are smaller
Bandwidth usage stored in a SQLite database
Bandwidth usage logged using a Windows Service, or a daemon process on Linux/OSX - this means that logging begins as soon as your system starts up, and continues even if no-one is logged in.
Command-line interface - the core data capture component, and command-line client, can be run on servers where no GUI is available
