    I seem to remember there was once a small utility that resided in the upper-right menu bar that showed Internet traffic activity on a continuous basis.

    Can't find it now.

    Does anyone know of such a utility ?

    I have been experiencing intermittent Internet dropouts from my cable Internet provider, and I would like a way to observe them in real time.

    Thanks for your help.

    "Little Snitch" appears to be a security utility, and the program I remember simply placed two small active icons in the upper-right side of the menu bar. The icons indicated when traffic was moving in and out of the Mac.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Not sure what program that is, but the bar charts could do the job. Can you identify the program ?

    Thanks,
