I want to know what programs are using XXX bandwidth?

For example...if Firefox is downloading 500kbps, I want to know that. And if Google Installer is downloading...I want to know that, too.

NetLimiter Monitor can do this and much more.

NetLimiter Monitor is freeware.

While it looks cool, it turns to be a crippled version of its shareware counterpart that has more features. Are there any truly freeware alternatives to this, that can also do ip/port-based traffic shaping and prioritization? – geek Dec 22 '09 at 7:29
I know monitor is a crippled version, but the monitoring component is all this particular user needs. Maybe traffic shaper XP is a better fit for you: – John T Dec 22 '09 at 7:41
That one is a crippled version as well. And it looks like it doesn't include flexible prioritization. – geek Dec 22 '09 at 17:39
Ah well, it's free, I wouldn't expect too much of it. – John T Dec 22 '09 at 19:43
