Visualize and analyze your network traffic.

PeakHour overview

PeakHour is a beautiful, real-time network-traffic visualizer that lives in your menu bar. It provides an instant view of your Internet or Wi-Fi activity in real-time. PeakHour is great for monitoring your Internet or Wi-Fi connection, and can help you determine how much bandwidth your computers and devices are using at any given time.

Note: PeakHour requires a capable, SNMPv1-enabled device to work properly. Many good routers do support SNMP but not all do, so it is important that you check before purchasing.

    Version 3 was really well done. So I happily purchased V.4. But from the very first day (and it's been out for a while now) it keeps crashing. Filed a bug report, but no reaction, no update, still crashing.

    Am I loving it? Quite frankly, I'm not entirely sure what it is telling me. I have it running in the Menubar and I occasionally open up the graphs to see what is happening. But I also use Network Logger Pro, which is much more informative and I know how to interpret the graphs. PeakHour needs more information concerning what the graphs, more specifically the changes in the graphs mean.

    It's been a somewhat silky ride for PeakHour with version 3 so far. The addition of PeakHour 4's Remote feature brought a much anticipated plus to mobile devices, too. However with the advent of version 4's focus on new features and gimmicks there's now even more that's left in a buggy and unfixed state than I'd be willing to cope with. Unfortunately the developer doesn't appear to be willing to deal with old bugs, some of these trailing a few years back. Then again the app mostly does what it says on the tin, so who am I to nag about it? ;)

    It works sorta but it should show totals without a limit. My biggest problem with this app is when i download at 42 megabyte per sec it flashes not responding. That means it looses and you get this peaks that don't show total. It has a option to ask device to smooth data but doesn't help.

    Very wonderful. The function is also enriched and well. The customization function is also really made, and it's very easy to use. I was waiting eagerly for such tool.

    10.10.4 Belkin N Wireless router it shows me 137.5 Gb usage over 9 hours which is unbelievable over my infra-red link here in Axarquía with a 2.5 Gb cap per day from my ISP.
    Is there any way to calibrate this?
    Gone up to 152.9 in 5 mins.

    Work perfectly on OSX 10.10.1. Should have an option to disable device that are not monitored instead of remove it.

    I like the look of the menu bar graph, but the download total is WAY OFF! Just in the past week I've downloaded several times what the total shows. Right now I'm downloading over 500 KB/s, and the graph is fluctuating between 2.7 and 3.4 KB/s. NOT EVEN CLOSE!

    CORRECTION TO MY PREVIOUS REVIEW: Works as described after fiddling around with router configuration. Sorry for the miscue, it does exactly what it is supposed to do.
