PeakHour 3 lets you visualise network traffic for compatible routers and network devices. We strongly recommend that you visit our web site for information about compatibility. Click the 'Digitician Web Site' link to the right or visit for more information >>

PeakHour 3 is a beautiful, network traffic visualiser that lives in your Mac OS menu bar. Its a powerful tool that provides an instant and historical view of your Internet, WiFi and other compatible devices.

PeakHour 3 is perfect for monitoring your compatible network devices*: Internet, WiFi, NAS, servers and more. PeakHour 3 gives you a real-time visual view of how much bandwidth your devices are using. In PeakHour 3, data is collected over time and can be analysed in the powerful new History view, which lets you see previous collected data for any time period at adjustable levels of detail.

PeakHour 3 can also track individual total usage and can also track your Internet usage if you're on a capped or limited monthly allowance. PeakHour 3 can send email alerts or system notifications as you reach certain usage thresholds.

◆ Greatly enhanced real-time view. No longer limited to 3 minutes, you can see as far as 12 hours into the past. View is now more configurable with different zoom levels, absolute vs. relative times and more.
◆ Powerful History engine lets you view back months or even years. The view is highly adjustable and lets you set almost any time period with a configurable level of detail. Mouse over elements to see the individual datapoint or drag-select a range to see an average or sum.
◆ New Configuration Assistant makes setup even easier. Now supports active scanning for SNMP devices on your local network and a new validation view that shows you details about the target you've just chosen.
◆ Usage Triggers can now email you, pop up an OS notification or run a script when a usage threshold is met. Configure as many usage thresholds as you like, set to either a percentage or absolute usage amount (GB)
◆ "Hide on Unreachable" which - if enabled - will completely hide any targets that can't be reached. Great if you roam between different networks (e.g. home and work) and only want to see those that are being monitored.
◆ Fully supports OS X 10.10 "Yosemite" including the new Dark Mode UI and Vibrancy.

Ratings and Reviews

Ne fonctionne pas


Chiffres qui paraissent fantaisistes … 349GB en l’espace de 5 minutes, alors qu’avec une autre application, Bandwidth+, qui est gratuite, le total est de 320MB … Déjà plus proche de la réalité.
Assez déçu de PaekHour 3, je m’attendais à une application qui soit plus précise, plus efficace, et finalement il se trouve qu’elle fonctionne mal … on peut même dire pas du tout, puisqu’elle n’est pas fiable.

Developer Response

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We do ask that you get in contact with us directly if you're having trouble so that we can assist you. With regards to the accuracy, PeakHour is just displaying the values that it receives from your router. Unfortunately, some router manufacturers don't fully test the features that PeakHour needs (e.g. UPnP), which can lead to problems like you've observed. We strongly encourage you to try the free 10-day trial before purchasing for this reason (see for details). If you're having trouble, PLEASE contact us at so we can try to help. Quite often contacting the router manufacturer for a patch / fix can help resolve these kinds of issues.

i struggle a little to make it works with my freebox revolution that doesn’t support snmp.
through the forum i found out my solution for a mac environment and now it works perfectly.
PH3 delivers exactly what i was looking for.
Look forward to see improvements on history length and related analysis capabilities, and of course a little on graphical look&feel.
overall a really good application.
