Gigabytes added when I come out of sleep mode
« on: June 20, 2011, 04:36:24 PM »
The program seems to work.

Problem.  When I take my computer out of sleep mode, many gigabytes of bandwidth is added to the record.  It all happens in an instant - a brief spike of fake bandwidth.

This is a problem as I want to use CS fire monitor to track my daily and monthy usage - my ISP wants to charge me if I use too much.  If I get many gigabytes added when I come out of sleep mode then I don't know what my real usage is.

I had been trying another program - FreeMeter.  Same thing happened. 

I have a motorola gateway (Netopia-3000 Model 3347-02) hooked up to my ethernet port.  Win7/64 bit.

Yes, I could quit the CS Fire monitor each time I go to sleep mode.  If I ever forgot to do it, then my bandwidth log is screwed up.  I use sleep mode a few times a day - I'll forget from time to time.

Also, where is the bandwidth log saved?  You developers shouldn't make those things hard to find.

My CS Fire monitor program is old, over 5 years. If it isn't working for you then you need to use my more current tool (This is the free version)

Everything is saved in the database file (stats.mdb). Not that hard to find :wink:

I think simple internet meter will be better for you.
