PeakHour is a beautiful, real-time network-traffic visualizer that lives in your menu bar. It provides an instant view of your Internet or WiFi activity in real-time. PeakHour is great for monitoring your Internet or WiFi connection, and can help you determine how much bandwidth your computers and devices are using at any given time.
Note: PeakHour requires a capable, SNMPv1-enabled device to work properly. Many good routers do support SNMP but not all do, so it is important that you check before purchasing. Use the tool in the Related Links to find out if your router is compatible.
You can now 'tear off' / pin the PeakHour window to the desktop (hooray!). Instead of the Pin button keeping PeakHour open and on top, it now detaches the window so that it can be placed anywhere. This option and the window placement are remembered so if you decide to tear the window off, it will start where you left it.
Optionally tell SNMP devices to update their counters as often as possible, creating smoother graphs. This option effectively automates the steps described in this FAQ and is useful when monitoring Linux and Mac OS X devices via SNMP (among others).
Targets can now be manually disabled.
PeakHour will now (optionally) write state change events to log file. Note the log file CSV format has changed slightly with the addition of a "Messages" column.
