1.2
22 August 2011

Keeps an eye on your all network-enabled apps running on your Mac.

Overview

Rubbernet provides a breakdown of per-app network usage, so you can quickly detect apps that phone home, connect to servers without your knowledge, or blame the app that's slowing down your network.

Features:

  • Real-time network dashboard:
    Rubbernet provides real-time monitoring so you can keep an eye on the exact state of your live network connections. With the Activity sidebar, you'll be able to see which applications are currently communicating over your network. When connections are idle, they will dim to let you know that traffic has stopped.
  • App bandwidth usage:
    Rubbernet provides a breakdown of per-app network usage, so you can quickly detect apps that phone home, connect to certain servers without your knowledge, or blame the app that's slowing down your network.
  • Live graphs:
    Real-time charting displays download and upload transfer rates for all active apps on all monitored Macs. Visualize your network usage and get a bead on network hogs before they get out of control.
  • Remote monitoring:
    Monitor all computers on your network from one Rubbernet instance on your Mac. No need to get up and open Rubbernet on a remote Mac to see its network statistics. Unlike other network monitoring tools, there is no complicated setup. It takes just a second to install or uninstall the necessary tools for Rubbernet to work. After that, they sit quietly in the background and provide the app with live data with minimal resource consumption.
  • Multi-user support:
    Have multiple user accounts on your Macs? Rubbernet automatically assigns every incoming and outgoing connections to the users they belong to.
  • One-click install/uninstall:
    Unlike other network monitoring tools, there is no complicated setup. It takes just a second to install or uninstall the necessary tools for Rubbernet to work. After that, they sit quietly in the background and provide the app with live data with minimal resource consumption.

The dev still has not changed their pricing. The web site does say a price but then they call out a special for introductory pricing but the pricing is still the same. Yes, I have found that the background daemon also consumes a wack of CPU resources especially if you also have Little Snitch and Hands Off running. I have not seen the "hover overs" being resolved nor any ability to again justify the pricing based on Little Snitch or Hands Off with less functionality. What is does; it seems to do well albeit with a performance hit. Better value is still Little Snitch and Hands Off for functionality and pricing. I do like the display of RubberNet ....

As written in previous comments. No longer works on my MacBookPro. No graph, no activity showing/registering. Was creating kernel panics. Sorry...

Great helper tool in investigating network traffic.
Probably outdated by now?!

Apple's MacOS X installer (El Capitan) alerted me that Rubbernet was incompatible.

Though the software was good and i liked the software but after installing the demo for several days i was getting a kernel panic. I was not able to figure out what program was causing the problem. Finally while looking at the diagnotic logs i was able to figure out that this software was creating the kernel panic because before a kernel panic this software produced an error log of bad exec error. I am glad to remove this software to get rid of the error.

Flat out doesn't work. Their tech support can't get it working and I paid for it! All I can say is don't buy!

After dealing with their tech support and sending console logs etc at their request the developers have now just stopped replying to me. I'm guessing that's tacit acknowledgement that they can't get it to work. Poor showing.

Well... looks like this app was a con all along so my earlier postings were fair warning. The developers have now shut down and the app has also been removed from the MAS.

Typical output from Conceited software… malfunctions right out of the gate. Double clicked the app, and spinning activity indicator… and nothing more. I had better look to see if this was a "show me the spinning busy wheel" utility… Reminds me of Clips, the other bug infested pile of bits.

And I thought it was just me. I have been liaising with their tech support to try to get it fixed, and tbh it really seems like they have no idea what to do. I'll keep struggling for a bit longer because I would find the app useful and I paid for it (through a Stacksocial deal).

Didn't work properly. Some applications showed as 'inactive' even though they were active and using network activity. It seems impossible to get the historical network activity from an application if it is marked as inactive. So, for example you open an application that you suspect dialed home and want to know here it dialed, well if its marked 'inactive' then you are out of luck. Uninstalling the 'helper' is done by clicking a button entitled "INSTALL helper", err OK, that makes no sense. Little Snitch is so much better, and actually works. I suspect the price of this will come down once it finishes it promotion as part of a bundled. Its currently a $40 value, inflating the bundle price. At $5 I would not buy, I'm sorry but it just does not work at the moment...

The demo client was a CPU hog, massively. I manually reniced it to idle only and things on my imac still seemed to run slower. I also had 2 kernel panics while running the demo. The price is pretty far out there too considering little snitch gives you control and all this does is observe; and it observes at a high CPU cost. Certainly not worth the price to me.

Rubbernet shows a little more information than Little Snitch's Network Monitor. Features are OK, could be a lot better for the price. It also has a two terrible bugs: - Causes a kernel panics - Doesn't recognize non-native network interfaces. Rubbernet is not ready for prime time.

I want it, but it is way overpriced. The "introductory price" seems a little fishy as well.
