Hi I was wondering if anyone knew of an application like netlimiter for the Mac? For all the non-switchers out there Netlimiter is a little utility that limits internet traffic by applications (rather than ports).

Here is a link to the software for more information:

I'm looking forward to hearing suggestions soon.

Did you find a good equivalent to NetLimiter for the Mac?

Read above - Little Snitch does exactly what you're looking for.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I have to second little snitch. I use it. And it can black/white by:
whole application or port being used. And you also can just enable/disable a process once if you want to. Use it. It's very good.

He wants something he can use to limit the bandwidth allotted to applications (bandwidth shaping)., NOT a firewall.

Little snitch is does not do this.
