Applications :: Applescript To Reset Network Usage In IStat Pro

Jan 14, 2009

Is it possible to reset the total bandwidth used for downloads and uploads in iStat pro via an applescript?

I use it to monitor my internet usage since they cap it at my school to a couple gigabytes a day. Since I went over once and was given a warning, my second offense would be no internets from anywhere from a week to a year.

I would use the application Lingon to automatically run the applescript every day at midnight.

Right now the only way to reset the counter is to restart my computer which is bothersome and time consuming

If anyone could point me in the right direction as to the file it uses to store network usage info I could probably figure out how to write the applescript myself.

Mac :: IStat Server Shows No Network Usage On Mac Mini Server?

Aug 23, 2010

I have a 2009 Mac Mini Server with iStat Server installed. When I connect to iStat server with the iPhone app, I see no network usage (even though it is being used). iStat Pro widget will show the usage just fine. Any ideas on why its not showing up with iStat Server?

Applications :: IStat Network Menu And New IMac

Oct 26, 2009

I use iStat menus to show my network upload and download speeds. I got my new 27" iMac yesterday and installed iStat Menus and for some reason the Up/Down speeds from the Airport do not register at all. I have iStat set to the Airport as the only option and is the priority. I've uninstalled and reinstalled iStat Menus and still no luck getting anything to work.

Applications :: IStat Menus - Does Not Display Network/bandwidth Data?

Feb 10, 2010

I'm running the latest iStat Menus (2.0) on Snow Leopard 10.6.2. All the displayed data shows just fine with the exception of the Network (bandwidth) menu. The graph does not reflect bandwidth being used and the "KB/s" displays a constant "0.0KB/s." I've tried rebooting and I've also tried manually selecting "Airport" in the General Settings in iStat Menus' Preference Pane.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

(iStat Pro, the widget version of this program, displays the bandwidth data though.)

Applications :: Finding Network Usage Monitor App?

Feb 1, 2010

I'm looking for an app that monitors my network usage. Currently, I use iStat Pro, but that "forgets" the "Total In" value upon reboot.

I want to monitor my network activity over a month or so, to see what my average usage per month / day is.
Is there any app that keeps the progress?

OS X :: Finding Widget To Monitor Network Usage?

Sep 10, 2009

I have just successfully tethered my Nokia 5800 to my MBP and its working great... just one question, is there some way to monitor (maybe like a widget?) how much data i have upped and downloaded?

The reason i ask is because i have a package that allows me 1gig of traffic a month, after which there are some stupid rates *per day* of usage and the speed will be throttled as well.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Track Network Usage By Program

Jan 31, 2012

My Macbook Air (running lion) is consuming a large amount of bandwidth. Yesterday 20GB of data were uplodaded. I don't know which program(s) is doing it.
I'm not doing any of the obvious things that might lead to such usage: I don't use torrents, watch internet movies, etc. Even when I'm doing nothing, or have the browsers closed, I'm uploading between 32 kbs and sometimes 3 mbps. Activity monitor shows total network usage, but it doesn't break it down by program. Is there a way to make activity monitor do that? I've installed little snitch, but no program that it tracks is taking up enough bandwidth to account for the usage I'm seeing.

OS X :: Is Normal For Network Usage To Spike Every So Often In Activity Monitor When Not Using Anything

Jan 27, 2009

it is normal for network usage to spike every so often in activity monitor when I am not using anything on my mac, and don't have any apps open? For example, if I open up activity monitor, click on the network tab at the bottom, i'll get a little spike in data received every so often, maybe every 20-30 seconds, usually 50-200 bytes, nothing big... Occasionally there will be a little red spike for data sent mixed in there too, about the same size, every once in a while.

Applications :: IStat Menus Is A Paid App?

Apr 28, 2010

was surprised to see iStat menus is now a paid app. So if I update, I'll have to buy it.

Its a nice app, but I'm not sure if its needed, even if its only 10 bucks.

Anyone else care to chime in on this?

Don't get me wrong, if I like an application, I'll buy it. I've purchased delta walker (compare utility) and will be upgrading my transmit to version 4.

Its just this type of eye candy - is it worth 10 bucks (that's the discounted price, it will go up)

Applications :: IStat Pro - How To Use SMART Update Interval

Nov 14, 2010

In iStat Pro, what's the purpose of setting "S.M.A.R.T Update Interval" to something other than "off"? I understand that this may cause iStat to query SMART in my HD (MBP Early 2009) at the set time interval. But what does that give me? iStat doesn't show any new info anywhere after I set the update interval to 5 mins. At least, I haven't noticed anything new. Is it supposed to display the HD temperature somewhere? Is there something else I have to turn on? I'm using iStat Pro 4.9.

Applications :: IStat Not Showing GPU Diode Temperature?

Sep 29, 2009

I use iStat to keep an eye on the temperature of my macbook pro.

I noticed today that the temperature of my gpu diode dropped to -128 degrees Celsius. I decided that I should probably update my mac OS from 10.5 to 10.6. So I used my university's net install to install 10.6.

I updated iStat to version 2.0. Then I noticed that GPU diode does not even show up in the menu. Therefore I downloaded Temperature Monitor and the GPU diode still does not show.

However the GPU diode will sporadically show up. however, it has not shown up in a while now.

I can still see the temperature of the GPU heatsink however.

Does this mean that the GPU diode is bad? Or did the mac os X disable the reading of the GPU diode?

If the GPU diode temperature sensor did go bad, is there any problems with running the laptop without getting it fixed?

Applications :: IStat Menus 3.0 Battery Meter Not Accurate?

Sep 17, 2010

I just upgraded to iStat Menus 3.0, and was trying to use the new Battery meter. I was running on Battery when I installed it, and I was comparing it to the Apple meter to make sure it matched, and the % and time remaining was identical. Then I plugged my MacBook in, and iStat said it had like 3:00 hours remaining to a full charge, and the Apple meter said like 1:48. I let it discharge completely thinking that might help, but its still messed up. Right now iStat says 2:03 remaining, and Apple says 1:05. Both of the percentages are at 77%. Anyone else having this problem, or know how to fix it?

Applications :: Applescript For Saving .TXT Files From Mac Mail

Nov 17, 2009

I've seen a similar request posted a couple times, but have had no luck on those threads finding the solution to my problem. I would like to write an AppleScript that would save an attachment (a .txt file) from Mail to my desktop. (Then in turn, I will make a rule in Mail that will run this script when certain conditions are met in the email). I'm sure it's probably very simple, but I have been playing around with the script editor for a few hours now and still can't figure it out. Needless to say, I am new to scripting.

Applications :: Different Temperature Readings In IStat And Temperature Monitor?

Jan 4, 2011

I noticed that iStat and Temperature Monitor report different temperatures for the same readings on my G5 Powermac Dual Processor System. For example as I am writing this Temperature Monitor is saying My CPU A is 46.8C and CPU B is 46.7C. In iStat it says CPU A is 55C and CPU B is 54C. Which is right!?

Applications :: Firefox 4.0 B7 - Increased RAM Usage...

Nov 11, 2010

So the latest beta is apparently 64-bit to begin with. I've also noticed that it uses more RAM than the previous (beta) versions, which is quite disappointing. It now uses up even more RAM than Safari!! Has anyone else noticed that?

I also don't like the the new "page loading" status because it doesn't tell much - seems like a copy of Chrome's too. I preferred how it was in the previous beta version.
