    Hi..

    Im on a limited broadband plan, where each MB counts.

    Earlier, when I was working on PC, I used some firewalls, which used to notify me and cut out all the connections, which tries to connect to the internet.

    Now, on iMac, I have got a huge bill of 2500$ for this month and just installed iStat Pro .

    Now, when i switched on the iMac and checked on iStat Pro for live reading , it runs like hell.

    Im doing nothing, and its 300mb in 2 hours.

    My apps running are ADIUM, SKYPE, MAIL, FIREFOX (no live browsing going on, just localhost MAMP).

    I dont know, wtf is using this data. All I know is, I have to pay this 2500$ now for this stupid thing, which I cant even track.

    I have installed Little Snitcher , but no good.

    F**k.

    Close all applications. Does it still use 300MB in 2 hours?

    Open apps one by one, waiting in between each to check network usage. You should be able to find the one taking your bandwidth.

    Also, go to accounts - login items. Delete everything there, do a clean reboot and don't start any app except dashboard for iStat.
