I am using fiddler to monitor what is going on. Though I cant see total traffic over time for a session.

Any tools that can do that easily (If I could export the statistics to a spreadsheet from Fiddler it would be OK).

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Take a look at Wireshark


"Wireshark is a network packet analyzer. A network packet analyzer will try to capture network packets and tries to display that packet data as detailed as possible."

Have a look at the documentation, specifically Capture Filters to accomplish what you want.

I have (I couldn't see exactly how to do this, and also it wasn't so easy to set it up in general) – Olav Jan 20 '11 at 18:11
@InginiteLurker please give a little more info on the program and what exactly it does and how one can get some help. – KronoS Jan 20 '11 at 20:01
Fiddler is about the same as Wireshark. Just suggesting other network tools is not so useful, but of course Wireshark is one of the main ones and could be better/easier than Fiddler. – Olav Jan 21 '11 at 12:07

For Windows, try the combination of Microsoft Visual Round Trip Analyzer and Microsoft Network Monitor.

This looks quite web-oriented.Any reason to think it beats Wireshark/Fiddler? I am mostly looking at ports, and I can easily more them. For example I throttle with iprelay -b 1000000 8082:localhost:8080 – Olav Jan 21 '11 at 12:10
Well, fiddler is a tool for http, so I though this might be a good match. I haven't used wireshark, so I can't offer a comparison. Another thing you might want to look into are the developer tools built into Chrome. – chris Jan 21 '11 at 12:35
