Excellent, I was looking for something like this and this docklet looks excellent!
Suggestions/requests:
- ability to configure refresh rate;
- ability to configure font size;
- ability to enable/disable plugin while keeping it in the dock. This could be quite useful since there are times in which one doesn't need to monitor bandwidth, so the added processing that comes from the docklet could be "disabled". On the other hand, having to remove the docklet to disable and add it again everytime one needs it, could be avoided, if this were implemented. Anyway, as it is, it's already a great docklet so thank you for your work on this!

Consider the first two done... just give me a few days to find the time to do it... The third request... well, I am not so sure, the docklet is using Windows performance counters to obtain the data (which are by default active in the system all the time, it just read the values and creates the graph - or stats), so it should not be too heavy on CPU & memory resources. I did not do any profiling... but I guess that if you simply disable the graph & stats it will only turn on/off the icon (if you have not hidden them), so it might be interesting to measure if this is enough.

Hi, thanks for the quick reply and for the feedback about the first two suggestions. I'm glad to hear they will be implemented in the future About the 3rd option, you are absolutely right, nevermind my suggestion Cheers!

This is coolest thing ever! I installed it and quickly went to speedtest.net to check how it responded and it turns out its the best thing since sliced bread! Just one request... Logging? With the ability to set the "start of the month", and keep a daily, weekly, and monthly total of uploads and downloads, as well as a total for the both of them. I'm from NZ and I only get 40GB a month, so I'm wanting to keep an eye on my usage. Thanks again

I dont have any other suggestions other than logging lol. Other than that it would be the perfect network monitor. Dunno how accurate it is, haven't checked that yet. But I'm sure it would be. I'll keep checkin' from time to time to see if theres any progress. merry christmas and happy new year to all.
