2 Excellent Software to Monitor Your Internet Usage in Windows
If you are on a limited bandwidth plan from your ISP, it is absolutely essential that you monitor your internet usage daily. Even if you are not, bandwidth monitoring software are useful because they combine other functions like speed measurement and connection troubleshooting. Many of us have multiple connections these days, and a good internet monitoring program will track all network connections or just specific ones. So, with these thoughts in mind, let us look at two excellent software for Windows systems to monitor your internet usage.
NetWorx is a free and small bandwidth measuring utility that works from the system tray and keeps an eye on all your network connections. It gives you network usage reports, activity notifications, and other network testing tools too. You can use it to not only monitor your internet for excess traffic but also as a watchdog for network related problems. Here’s a brief summary of the features bundled in this 3.1 MB free Windows software.
- Speed Meter measures your bandwidth speed and along with usage statistics gives you an idea of the date that is being transferred and its throughput rate.
- You can break up the data into day, week, month, and also custom periods. View them on colorful graphs.
- Set up quotas and get notifications if certain threshold percentages are crossed.
- Network monitoring tools like Trace Route and Ping help to spot potential network problems like dropped packets and miss-connections.
- You can use NetStat to check out the active TCP/IP incoming and outgoing connections and use it to check if some malware is connecting to your connection, among other things.
- NetWorx is highly customizable and you can get into the options to set things like graph colors, automatic dialing, notification actions etc.
NetWorx is available as an installer and portable versions. It works on (both 32-bit and 64-bit) Windows 2000, XP, 2003, Vista, Seven, 2008.
Freemeter is another excellent bandwidth monitor that you can use to monitor your internet usage in Windows. It is even smaller than NetWorx as a download of just 120 KB. The EXE file is a standalone and you don’t need to install it. That makes it great as a portable tool for checking the internet traffic on any computer that’s around you.
- Freemeter has a simpler graph, but you can customize it with update intervals, bandwidth scale, and measuring units.
- Freemeter has more utilities like an URL Grabber and a POP and IMAP email checking tool. Email checker requires .Net version 3.5 and above.
- Network monitors like a Ping and Tracer Route utility help to check the health of all your networks.
Freemeter works on all versions Windows. It hasn’t been tested on 64-Bit computers though it reportedly works there as well. Both these internet bandwidth monitors work well and are simple enough for the normal user. Being lightweight and portable, you should at least have one of them around. Which one will it be?

Cad dictionary definition #cad, #online #dictionary, #thesaurus, #dictionary, #cad #definition, #definition #of #cad, #define #cad, #cad #meaning, #websters, #synonyms, #pronunciation, #usage #examples, #quotes
The use of computers and software in design work. CAD is used extensively in architecture, aeronautical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, genetic engineering, mechanical engineering, facilities planning, and interior design.
(C omputer-A ided D esign) Using high-speed desktop computers to design products. Either a mouse or graphics tablet is used for the physical drawing, and a scanner may be attached for additional input. The output of a CAD system is often electronically transmitted to a computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) system or 3D printer, which builds the objects (see CAD/CAM and 3D printing ). Generic or Specialized CAD software is available for generic design or specialized uses, such as architectural, electrical and mechanical. The software may also be highly specialized for creating products such as printed circuits and integrated circuits. Solid and Parametric Modeling More complex forms of CAD are solid modeling and parametric modeling, which allows objects to be created with real-world characteristics. For example, in solid modeling, objects can be sectioned (sliced down the middle) to reveal their internal structure. In parametric modeling, objects have meaningful relationships with each other (a door must be on a wall, not the floor; holes cannot be drilled too close to the edge, etc.). See wireframe modeling. surface modeling. solid modeling. parametric modeling. graphics and CAE.
Two or Three Dimensions
While 2D CAD programs work for some applications, they are essentially the computer counterpart to hand-drawn objects. In contrast, 3D CAD enables objects to be drawn with sides, top and bottom so they can be manipulated as a whole and viewed from any angle.
From Rivets to Trees
Some CAD software suites can take the finished object and render it as a real-world entity. This building was designed in MicroStation Modeler and rendered in MicroStation MasterPiece from Bentley Systems. (Image courtesy of Bentley Systems, Inc. and Cooper Carry.)
