Windows have a basic task manager tool where we can view running process and end the process if it is not responding. However if you want to monitor which program connects to the Internet and how much bandwidth it actually takes, then you are out of luck unless you use third party software.

NetLimiter is an ultimate internet traffic control and monitoring tool designed for Windows. You can use NetLimiter to set download/upload transfer rate limits for applications or even single connection and monitor their internet traffic. Along with this unique feature, Netlimiter offers comprehensive set of internet statistical tools. It includes real-time traffic measurement and long-term per-application internet traffic statistics. You can also set NetLimiter to show you the bandwidth calculation in Bit, Byte, Kilobit, KiloByte, Megabit, MegaByte and etc for easy understanding. There are still a lot of people that don’t know the difference between KB and Kb…

There are 3 versions of NetLimiter 2 available – Pro, Lite and freeware Monitor. The Pro and Lite version are shareware and offers more features compared to the freeware Monitor. If you just want to monitor the running process on your Windows computer connecting to what IP address and port, and also how much bandwidth it is taking up, the freeware Monitor version will do just fine. It is definitely a great application if you want to evaluate the bandwidth usage or the transfer rate of a process or software.
