PacketStream 5.0 | Mac Os X | 7.7 MB
PacketStream provides point-and-click activation of the Mac's built-in network monitoring program, which is usually available only from the command line. By clicking a few buttons, you can monitor data as it streams over your network--especially useful for checking web traffic, network bottlenecks, or even suspicious network activity. All network data is displayed in the application itself, and you can save the data to a file for further analysis later.
PacketStream provides a user-friendly way to configure and use the Mac's network monitoring tools. It is easier than typing in cryptic commands in Terminal. As a natVive Aqua application, it is more intuitive to use than complex, hard-to-install, Unix-based GUI programs. And it is simpler than more expensive "swiss army knife" network programs, which are overkill for most users.
Simple to use: Set a couple of user preferences, click a button, and go.
Save network data to a file or print for later analysis.
Monitor traffic on specific network ports.
Thorough user documentation via the "Help" menu.
AppleScript and Services support.
No need to build mulitple network monitoring libraries and non-Mac-native GUI's from source code.
Actively maintained and improved.
