This includes all traffic initiated by software applications, services, Web sites etc. The capability to audit what flows in and out of every piece of software is critical for security aware users. ProteMac Meter provides real-time processes (applications and services) monitoring and shows the history of every network activity.

The program shows extensive information about each connection: application network connections, host availability, remote host more...

I have no trouble with it running. It does a fair job of what it's intended for, though i've encountered some bad behaviors, like once having all it's buttons and menus become frozen for a few minutes.

One time when i clicked to get the time graph for a specific app, PMM just sat there. Eventually it came back to life, i tried it again and it worked.

The most peculiar behavior is how while hidden because i'm not actually consulting it, PMM suddenly appears just to show me a dialog saying to wait a few minutes while it clears a cache or something.

Since i'm using the application at the moment and it's just recording traffic in the background, why on earth should i be told to wait a few minutes while it does maintenance of some kind? It doesn't even say WHAT it is that i cannot do while it's performing it. i.e. the reason i must wait.

froze after install. Force quite. No real help on their website. Rare comments on their forum page. Poor support. I bought it. Big Mistake.

A comment or trouble shooting post would be appropriate.

I find it irritating when people give an app the lowest score because it doesn't run. Obviously it must run for many people or there would be a flood of such comments, or very few downloads.

It's not informative or realistic to give an application the worst rating until you actually HAVE used it.


Good point Corpse', but check the other comments. This app is hanging for many users.

This is so far the only traffic monitoring app I have seen that actually allocates the overall traffic to specific applications. So far so good. However, it records my traffic only very sporadically, which renders the app useless. Example: While other apps I use show my traffic of the last two weeks to be 3.5 GB, ProteMac Meter (monitoring "all applications") indicates an overall traffic of 208 MB (!). How is that possible?

No humans in the loop -- I've bought lots of software on-line, and the process is usually quite seamless. I'm not sure if I was dealing with GeoVid or Plimus; I think Plimus handles the on-line sales. This had to be the more paranoid transaction for a $29 app I've ever encountered. "E-mail for serial number must match e-mail address with PayPal." "Please submit phone number for verification." Then when my cell phone didn't ring -- it was right with me the whole time -- I checked the voice message which stated that "efforts to reach me failed, please go to URL address to verify that you did order this item," etc. Then the confirming e-mail told me I had to wait 48 hours while my order was being reviewed.

It's a $29 app!

Then I had to go digging for the serial number -- which the Web site finally surrendered to me -- when I did not get any further e-mails after four days.

The final punch-line? The app kept hanging, "ProteMac Meter not responding."

Force quit.
