I am looking for a way to monitor the network throughput under Windows XP. Is there a native way to do this in XP or will I need a third-party tool? If I must use a third-party tool, are there any open-source options available?
What I have in mind is something small that runs, maybe as a service, and constantly maintains a statistic about the amount of network traffic per time. Later I would then like to inspect at which times the network traffic was highest.
