Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
iNetMonitor is an utility for the up- and download speed measurements on your Mac. It draws a histogram chart for the better visual network activity monitoring and calculates the current traffic speed updated every second. It could be useful when you want to check up your overall downloading rate, etc.
Can draw the chart directly on Dock icon or on the pushpinnable transparent resizable window on the Desktop.
This app is fast and efficient, which is important when keeping a monitoring graph open all the time. It used 40MB of RAM on my MacBook Pro, which was close to the memory usage for Activity Monitor while running it's network graph. The CPU usage was constant but negligable.
The UI is clean and simple with few bells and whistles, but all of the essentials are covered including a Dock icon display option similar to Activity Monitor. However, I would not have chosen a bar graph instead of a line graph as it's harder to see trend lines, and an adjustable history longer than 10 ticks would be great as well.
Good not great
This app is useful to tell you your current upload and download speeds, but the charting leaves something to be desired. I appreciated that I could unlock the display and scale it to be bigger, but this just enlarges the graph instead of showing a wider period of time. Also, the transparency slider is backwards - it should be flipped or renamed to opacity.
Where is the IP Addresses?
Who could make any sense at red or blue squares moving from left to right?
