ABOUT PEAKHOUR 3
PeakHour 3 is a beautiful, network traffic visualiser that lives in your Mac OS menu bar. Its a powerful tool that provides an instant and historical view of your Internet, WiFi and other compatible devices.
MONITOR YOUR NETWORK
PeakHour 3 is perfect for monitoring your compatible network devices*: Internet, WiFi, NAS, servers and more. PeakHour 3 gives you a real-time visual view of how much bandwidth your devices are using. In PeakHour 3, data is collected over time and can be analysed in the powerful new History view, which lets you see previous collected data for any time period at adjustable levels of detail.
TRACK YOUR USAGE
PeakHour 3 can also track individual total usage (optionally over an automatically reset monthly period), and can also track your Internet usage if you're on a capped or limited monthly allowance. PeakHour 3 can send email alerts or system notifications as you reach certain usage thresholds.
NEW IN PEAKHOUR 3
◆ Greatly enhanced real-time view. No longer limited to 3 minutes, you can see as far as 12 hours into the past. View is now more configurable with different zoom levels, absolute vs. relative times and more.
◆ Powerful History engine lets you view back months or even years. The view is highly adjustable and lets you set almost any time period with a configurable level of detail. Mouse over elements to see the individual datapoint or drag-select a range to see an average or sum.
◆ New Configuration Assistant makes setup even easier. Now supports active scanning for SNMP devices on your local network and a new validation view that shows you details about the target you've just chosen.
◆ Usage Triggers can now email you, pop up an OS notification or run a script when a usage threshold is met. Configure as many usage thresholds as you like, set to either a percentage or absolute usage amount (GB)
◆ "Hide on Unreachable" which- if enabled- will completely hide any targets that can't be reached. Great if you roam between different networks (e.g. home and work) and only want to see those that are being monitored.

What's New in Version 3.1.3:
Fixed: Improved support for some UPnP routers (e.g. Verizon Actiontec). If your router was not detected previously, you may want to try this release.
