OS X V10.7 Lion :: Limit Bandwidth Per Application?

Mar 2, 2012

I am looking for a way to limit bandwidth per application under Mac OS X Lion ; either with a dedicated app or Terminal command.

I didnt find any tools with Google or App Store : does that mean "limiting bandwith" is a *bad* idea ?

OS X :: Limit Bandwidth For A Single App?

Nov 16, 2008

I am trying to limit the upload bandwidth of a program. Are there any apps out there that will allow me to do this?

I have read there is something built into OSX that can do this at the command line level (ipfw or something?)

Sep 30, 2010

Does anyone know of any application that will allow me to see details on how my bandwidth is being used? For example, I'd like to be able to track how much data I use when streaming Netflix (via a wired connection to my AirPort Extreme), browsing the web (wirelessly), or making a Skype call.

App Store :: Lion Installation - Limit On How Many Macs?

Apr 19, 2012

I know Lion need only be purchased once and installed on multiple computers, but is there a limit on exactly how many? Plus, can Lion be installed on a Mac that isn't mine, like my mother's MacBook for example, or would the installion require me to have an account on the MacBook?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Limit File Access For Different Users In 10.7.4?

Jun 18, 2012

We had everything working perfectly with an earlier version of Lion Server. The update to 10.7.3, or 4, seems to have opened access to all files for all users. Much to our surprise, this wide-open access started without warning.  

- We have an external drive that contains all of the company's archives 

- We had set access for one employee to get to the files he needs, and different access for another employee. Neither saw sharepoints outside of their access settings. 

After an update, each employee can see and log in to all sharepoints. There doesn't seem to be a way to limit access for each employee now. I can set 'read' access for one employee, but it doesn't stop the other employee from accessing that sharepoint/folder.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Change A User's Stack Memory Limit Setting?

May 1, 2012

Is there any way that the default stack memory limit for a user in Mac OS X Lion?  You can you ulimit in Terminal.app to display information, you cannot change any values. 

This is what is returned from ulimit when you try to change the stack memory size. 

user@MacbookPro:~$ ulimit -s 81920

-bash: ulimit: stack size: cannot modify limit: Operation not permitted 

Also, the default value is 8192KB which is approx. 8MB.  That is weak, especially on my 2011 iMac with 16GB of RAM.  I mainly do scientific programming on my Mac (Fortran).  These programs usually require a larger stack size.  One option is to allocate data to the heap but that is very slow.

Mac OS X Lion Server :: 10 User File Sharing Limit After 10.7.4 Upgrade?

Jun 14, 2012

Has anyone noticed a strange 10 user file sharing limit after upgrading to 10.7.4 server?Using DeployStudio to mass deploy 10.7.4 Lion images in a school. Since upgrading to 10.7.4 server, I am now limited to 10 logins on the repository. Thought this might be a DeployStudio issue, but it seems more like the server is imposing the restriction. If I do a manual login to the shared folder where the image files are kept on the server, I can only do it from 10 computers and computer 11 will refuse to login.

I am using Apple Mail on Lion to acces a Microsoft Exchange Server.The mailbox is quite large, and I'd like to just limit access to the past few days worth of messages. On my iOS devices this is easily accomplished in Settings. But, I do not see a similar option in Lion/Mail.If it is not possible, is there any other way to limit the size of data accessed?

OS X :: Checking My Bandwidth OS X?

Sep 6, 2010

This doesn't have to do with OS X as much as it does my ISP (Comcast 15Mbps/3Mbps Down/Up). Comcast states you get speeds "Up to" those advertised which basically means you will never get those speeds but once in a blue moon it could happen.

I've been watching my Router activity for a few minutes (see Top graph of the attached image) and I never get near either of those advertised speeds as expected. I am downloading Xcode DMG from Apple and a few torrents are running with no bandwidth restrictions.

My question is currently I'm getting about 50% of my advertised bandwidth, if I reduced down to the 1.5 Mbps Comcast package would I probably still only get 50% of that bandwidth? I think I already know the answer but was curious what you guys thought.

MacBook Air :: Multi Tasking - Enough In / Out Bandwidth

Oct 26, 2010

I really need to upgrade my old 15" MBP and have been really impressed with what I have seen so far with the 13" MBA. After seeing the MBA I cannot imagine buying a new system with an internal HDD and Optical drive. Just does not make sense. On the other hand, I am a pretty serious at multi-tasking and wonder if the MBA will be able to keep up. I've been using higher end MPB class Macs for around 10 years now, and may be taking certain things for granted. First, here is my current system: 15" MBP Early 2008 2.5 GHz C2D 6 MB L2 8600M GT, 320 GB 7200 RPM

Now, here are the list of apps I almost always have open at work:
- Mail with one browser, 3-4 notes windows open and 4-5 messages open
- Adium
- MS/Entourage
- MS/PowerPoint with 5-10 slide sets open
- MS/Excel with 5-10 spreadsheets open
- MS/Word with a couple of docs
- Preview with 3-5 docs
- Camino with 3-5 windows open (Flash blocked)
- Firefox with 3-4 windows open (Flash blocked)
- Address Book

I quit usingFusion, so good so far? Then I go home where I start doing video editing with my 1080 HD AVCHD footage. I don't close any of my work stuff, because I often have late night and early morning calls. At home add the following apps.
- iMovie for video editing
- Toast for burning Blu-ray discs
- Voltaic (AVCHD video encoding)

While pulling in AVCHD footage via an SD card reader in my ExpressCard slot and writing to a Firewire 800 disk I am burning a Blu-ray movie from Toast via my FW400 port. At the same time I might be using Carbon Copy Cloner to update my system to a different 2.5" external Firewire 800 drive. Time Machine comes around once an hour and wants to backup to my Airport Extreme over ethernet.Will I be able to do all of this with a MBA? I am especially interested in knowing if I will have enough I/O bandwidth. I'll be going from a machine with FW800, FW400, 2 USB2 ports, and ethernet to a machine that just has 2 USB2 ports. I did do a little test with USB and it takes 2.5x the time to copy a file compared to FW800. I also verified that iMovie will let me scrub HD video in with data connected via USB2. The only problem was that I did all of this on a MBP. The biggest let down for me from the Air announcements was the absence of a FW800 port.

Applications :: Any Way To Monitor Router Speed / Bandwidth?

Jan 15, 2009

I am able to monitor my wireless network no problem using something as simple as iStat pro but, for example, my xbox is connected to the router via ethernet cable so doesn't appear on any of the apps I have for found for monitoring network traffic. Is there an app that i can use to monitor the source i.e. the router itself, to see what speed/bandwidth the ethernet ports are using?

Applications :: IChat Bandwidth Limited By Comcast?

Oct 24, 2007

Ive been calling comcast over and over telling them that they have been throttling my internet's upload speed to the mid 40kbps range and they tell me no they havent. Finally they have been exposed in the past week, but they claim it is only to bit torrent traffic. This is not the case. I cant video chat for more than a minute or two before my internet gets throttled and the other person cant see me. The same goes for file transfers to a remote server for my graphic design stuff. Does anyone know a work around for this? Maybe changing the outgoing ports for iChat?

OS X :: Any Bandwidth Monitoring Widget That Not Reset On Bootup

Apr 30, 2009

I'm just wondering if there is a bandwidth monitor widget that doesn't reset itself on a reboot. I feel like I've tried hundreds from the Apple widget download page, but all reset themselves. It's not vital that I know how much bandwidth I use as I've got unlimited broadband, but it would be interesting to see how much I get through in a week/month/year.

Is there a monitor that will allow you to view the bandwidth on an IP address you specify? I want to be able to monitor all traffic coming in and out of my router, but I can't find an App that does this either. All they monitor is my local IP address 192.XXX.XXX.XXX (Specific to my iMac). I have a static IP address with my broadband so can I monitor traffic flowing through that? Or would I just need to monitor the routers network and/or broadcast address?

Is there a software to monitor the Bandwidth consumption for Mac.

I use Bandwidth Monitor Pro for Windows and its good. But I guess they do not have it Mac.

Activity Monitor does a good job of showing the current speed and the total amount of data downloaded / uploaded, but thats just good for one session.

I am looking for some software that helps me view this information over a period of time.

Software :: Bandwidth Monitor - MB / GB Of Upload / Download

After searching around on these forums, google and versiontracker, I still cannot find what I'm looking for. I found many network monitoring tools, but none of them did what I wanted it to do. I would like to find a program that simply shows how many MB/GB of upload/download I have used. The programs I was finding showed me the current amount of data being transferred and other information that is useless to me.
