Monitoring Internet Speed Using AnalogX Netstat Live

AnalogX Netstat Live (NSL) is a simple utility that you can use to monitor Internet speed from home network, so that you can know the actual connection speed of wireless, cable, DSL or dial up Internet connection. You can download the NSL from Analogx website.

This program is easy to use! Once you have installed and ran it, it will show you live incoming/outgoing traffic throughput (current, average, max) and also incoming/outgoing total traffic (last reboot, this month, last month). Don’t understand what is throughput? Throughput means amount of data sent/received in certain time period, such as bit per second (b/s) or byte per second (B/s). Furthermore, it also shows you CPU usage of your computer.

Right click the NSL and select Statistics; you can select several statistics to be displayed. In this case, I did not enable the System Threads statistic.
