how can I check Data Usage of my internet via pc?

Recommended Posts

Since you used the term 'PC' I'll assume you are running windows. 

 

1. Install BandwidthD
Grab Bandwidthd from http://sourceforge.net/projects/bandwidthd/
(bandwidthd-2.0.1-binary-windows.zip ) Not been updated in a while, then again it does not need to be really. 
 
2.  Unzip the file
unzip into whatever directory you wish 

3. Configure Bandwidthd
in the folder \bandwidthd\etc open the file bandwidthd.conf
Set your configs

4.Check if you have winpcap
http://www.winpcap.org

5. install the windows service
run the program install service.bat that is within the bandwidthd folder
Start the service manually

6. Visit the local index.html page - bookmark or create a desktop shortcut
{your install directory}\bandwidthd\htdocs

Better alternative is to use your router's monitoring software...common feature on newer routers and on Broadcom based routers upgraded to DDWRT, TomatoUSB, or Merlin (Asus) firmware.  This accounts for everything that goes between your network and your modem, regardless of the source.

That is a great way to monitor the total amount of used bandwidth top level of the internal network. 

I only suggested Bandwidthd since I am currently using it in the stated fashion myself, and the OP posted in the PERL forum for PC graphing. 

 

I'm just about finished with a nagios plugin that draws from Bandwidthd on each box, then stores it in a database on another remote box. ( customer wanted to find out which one of his employees were eating up all the bandwidth )

I came to see if there's anything interesting in Perl related discussion area - and it certainly was interesting to see a question, and then answer with very much Perl related stuff ...not as far as i can see, no Perl explanations, especially not Perl code.

 

Since he used Perl sub-forum, you should have forgotten OS, PC, and think Perl.

Very true. In fact it's been a while since this was active, however I missed the fact it was originally posted in the perl sub cat.

 

I'm sure many of us would appreciate any input you might have on this subject, in perl.
