    wow this sounds fun to write as a program (don't count on me to write it, just sounds fun)

    if your looking at activity monitor, it also including random I'm checking up on the network. it's always sending out/ receiving data.

    is it a lot of data?

    hmm weird, could you post samples of what you might see. When you say it maxes it out, does the graph go to the top? cause then its just the graph going from very little to a little. are we talking a couple of kilobytes/bits or is it megabytes/bits?

    You could try "little snitch" but it costs money. it shows everything that tries to access the intertubes.

    My max speed thru DSL is about 55 kb/sec, and thats what it spikes to and holds constant at for a while sometimes....That's how I am judgin it as "maxing out"....Also, i have Little Snitch, but going into System Preferences and clicking it, I dont see where exactly it says what program is donwloading the most....It only shows what programs Ive given internet access to...
