    Ive used menu meters forever, I keep my internet up/down throughput at the top to see whats doing. The old version didnt work with SL, but a beta version has been released. I installed that but 2 separate times today I noticed my upload speed pegged for no apparent reason. I looked in activity monitor and see nothing that looks like a cause of this behavior.

    I sat here this morning and watched my upload total go from 450mb to over 600mb in about 10 minutes, and just kept going up. Something is being uploaded somewhere, yet I dont know what or to where, unless this is just a bug in the beta version.

    I restarted the computer and so far there is nothing showing as being uploaded.

    So I rebooted before bed, nothing running at all. I get up and there has been a total of 1.8gb uploaded during the night. :confused:

    Wonder if you left Transmission or some such P2P software running?

    Net Monitor

    I recently used a program called Net Monitor Sidekick to view data coming in and out of remote addresses.

    You might try it out. Don't know if it runs on SL.
