Speed Meter Pro helps you manage your home and small business network performance; it's simple to use and offers easy-to-understand information. Speed Meter Pro monitors computers and devices on a network, collects data, and analyzes it to determine network performance. It shows you how much network resources a computer and its programs are using, and offers guidance on how to improve network performance to increase speed, response time, and avoid common network issues.
• Network Map — shows the devices currently connected to your local network. For PCs running Speed Meter Pro, you can quickly see how much network bandwidth they're using and which programs are using the most.
• Performance Alerts — Speed Meter Pro continually scans your entire network, checking connectivity, network usage, wireless performance, and much more. If Speed Meter Pro finds something that needs your attention, it displays an alert with easy-to-understand information about what you can do to fix the issue. This helps keep your local network running smoothly and at top performance.
• Network Scan — offers an on-demand scan of your network and a full summary of the results. Links to detailed information are included so you can learn more about specific network scan results.
• Internet Speed Test — performs an hourly test of the upload and download speed for your Internet connection and informs you if they are within the appropriate range based on your connection type. This is a great way to see if you're getting the speeds promised by your Internet service provider.
• Local Network Speed Test — tests your local network speed between two PCs on your network. This allows you to see how changes to your network can affect its performance. For example, if you're experiencing slow network speeds between a wireless laptop and another computer, you can move your laptop to a different location in your home or office and test again to see if that improves its network connectivity speed to other devices.
• Website Watch List — monitors the performance of your favorite websites. You can enter up to four website addresses and instantly see if the website is currently responding normally, is slow, or is unavailable. If you are visiting a website that is performing slowly you can determine if the performance issue is due to your network or the website's server. You can also use the Website Watch List to determine if the Internet is experiencing overall slowness by looking at the performance of all the websites in your list. If they are all indicating a slow response and your connection to the Internet is working properly, it's a safe assumption that there is overall slowing on the Internet.
• Network Performance History — provides a 30-day history of network performance results. This includes upload and download speeds (both hourly and for an entire day), alerts that have occurred, and an overall network performance status based on the data collected in the 30 day period.
