    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 15" 2.2GHz/4GB/250GB, G4 Cube 450MHz + 17" Studio LCD
    Internet Bandwidth Monitor
    My iMac will be hopefully all ready on Tuesday when my hard drive arrives and I install OS X.

    As it is going to be my primary internet machine, I'll need some kind of bandwidth montor because our internet is limited and I need to keep track on how much I use per day/month.

    On my Windows laptop, I use Rokario Bandwidth Monitor for realtime speed monitoring and DU Meter for daily logs and to pop up a warning when a daily limit has been exceeded. Unfortunately they are not available on Mac.

    So can anybody help me find a good bandwidth monitor please? Thanks in advance.

    OK, thanks I'll note it down and give it a try when my mac's working.

    Can you set it give notifications when you have exceeded a certain limit in a set period of time?

    Not that I am aware of... It really just shows you your totals since your last reboot. Although if you are like me you only reboot once a month or so you may actaully be able to judge it that way.

    I turn my computer off at night (the noise of the fans etc annoy me as my desk is close to my bed).
