Theres a really simple idea lying under the Interface Traffic Indicator software, yet the software built on the idea is excellent. The idea is: You have a computer, or a network, where youd want to monitor the amount of the network traffic. It can be done in many different ways with different levels of complexity and reliability, but the Interface Traffic Indicator uses probably the most basic and reliable method. The case is: most of the network devices provide SNMP interface, which stands exactly for this monitoring task (as SNMP literally means «Simple Network Monitor Protocol»). Virtually any network device can be polled through SNMP interface, and Interface Traffic Indicator does it for you.
The work with program is as simple as overall idea, and as comfortable as you can ever require. Just enter IP address of device you want to poll and the SNMP comunity device belongs to, then press «First contact» and then select network interface number from the list of interfaces available, and you can «Start polling» immediately, seeing the graph of selected device traffic. You have full control of how the graph would look like: you can see it in bits/sec or bytes/sec or in percents of utilization, you can setup «maximal bandwidth» manually. In addition to its main task, Interface Traffic Indicator also shows you the full device information and the log of monitoring activity.
