Feature suggestion: display what is currently being downloaded

Started by Lorenzo

Networx is a very nice monitoring program.

What I really miss in my usage (very simple usage) is this UI feature

Better than words, here is a picture of an old proxy soft called Naviscope:

The blue lines show what is currently downloaded ... and if one click on them, the download is stopped. Could you add that feature in the user interface of Networx? Great extra feature for your software, don't you think?

Let me know ...

It looks like Naviscope is a fundamentally different type of software. It's a proxy server that filters browser traffic, and as such only tracks activity in web-browsers.

NetWorx, on the other hand, intercepts all network activity on the computer at a lower level, which includes other apps like Skype or Torrent clients. At that level most traffic is encrypted, which means file names cannot be extracted from it.

There is a similar activity display in NetWorx called Netstat, though it operates with connections, not files. Certain apps or connections can be terminated by the user.

Sometimes you can get the answer faster if you try the forum search and/or have a look at the software user manual to see if your question has already been answered.
