    Our house's download limit is 30GB per month, and apparently we've used quite a lot of that since the 5th, and I was wondering if there was a way to view how much a specific Mac has used (there's more than one computer on the network) since a certain date or per day/week etc to find out who needs to cut down.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    i use i stat menus

    however, this also incorportes any info sent to and from computers within network, not just internet

    if you find one thats internet only, let me know as well

    i've just had a look at that site, does it tell you the usage before you downloaded the app or just after?

    it tells you the current rate, the peak and the total received/sent so far

    keep in mind though that it all resets when you restart the computer

    does that mean I can't tell how much activity there's been this month so far?

    correct, at least with that program

    does your isp have a website that tracks usage? much like att with minutes/texts/data?
