ContatoreTraffico is a lightweight software application whose purpose is to help you monitor your network and dialup traffic. In order to install the program correctly and avoid bumping into all sorts of issues, you need to have Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 deployed on the target computer.
After a fast and basic installation process where you only need to follow the preset steps in order to complete the job successfully, you are welcomed by a clean layout. All configuration settings are embedded in a single window, making it very easy for you to tweak them.
You cannot find a help manual comprised in the installation package, only a ‘Readme’ plain text file that comprises several handy tips about how to make the most out of the tool’s features. The utility makes use of a multi-tabbed layout for helping you quickly switch between the network monitoring options and log panel.
The log records information about all your actions and possible errors, and allows you to delete the information with a single click.
ContatoreTraffico gives you the possibility to choose the adapter that you want to keep an eye on from a drop-down list, disable a user-defined network adapter or modem or reset the monitoring activity and restart the process, as well as adjust the threshold.
Other important configuration settings worth being mentioned enable you to set the unit of measurement (bytes, kilobytes, or megabytes), check out the current status and today’s traffic. In addition, you are allowed to stop or start the monitoring mode, or reset the entire process.
Tests have pointed out that ContatoreTraffico carries out tasks quickly. It is quite friendly with system resources so you do not have to worry that the overall performance of the computer is hampered.
To sum things up, ContatoreTraffico comes bundled with several basic and intuitive features for helping you keep an eye on your network traffic, and is suitable especially for less experienced users.
