Network Activity Monitoring

In order to add a network activity counter, press the 'Add' button located on the main toolbar, selected the 'Network Activity' counters category in the left-side view and then select an appropriate network activity counter in the middle view. By default, SysGauge will monitor all network cards installed in the computer, but if required, the user can select a specific network card to monitor in the right-side view. In addition, in order to monitor the network activity in a remote computer via the network, press the 'Connect' button located in the bottom-left corner and specify the host name of the remote computer to monitor.

SysGauge Network Activity Monitoring
  • Network Transfer Rate - this counter measures the network transfer rate in Megabytes per second at which data is sent and received over the selected network adapter.
  • Network Transmit Rate - this counter measures the network transfer rate in Megabytes per second at which data is sent over the selected network adapter.
  • Network Receive Rate - this counter measures the network transfer rate in Megabytes per second at which data is received over the selected network adapter.
  • Network Packets Rate - this counter measures the rate at which packets are sent and received on the selected network adapter.
  • Network Send Packets Rate - this counter measures the rate at which packets are sent on the selected network adapter.
  • Network Receive Packets Rate - this counter measures the rate at which packets are received on the selected network adapter.
  • Network Send Packets Errors - this counter measures the number of outbound packets that could not be transmitted because of errors.
  • Network Receive Packets Errors - this counter measures the number of inbound packets that contained errors preventing them from being deliverable to a higher-layer protocol.
  • Network Send Packets Discarded - this counter measures the number of outbound packets that were chosen to be discarded even though no errors had been detected to prevent transmission. One possible reason for discarding packets could be to free up the system memory.
  • Network Receive Packets Discarded - this counter measures the number of inbound packets that were chosen to be discarded even though no errors had been detected to prevent their delivery to a higher-layer protocol. One possible reason for discarding packets could be to free up the system memory.
  • Network Output Queue Length - this counter measures the number of network packets in the output packet queue. If the number of network packets in the output queue more than two, there are delays and the bottleneck should be found and eliminated, if possible.
