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).
