10-Strike Bandwidth Monitor Version History


What's new:

* 4.2 * June 2023
- Added the ability to apply a filter by addresses and protocols in the "Volume by IP addresses" statistics table.
- Added the information about the total volume of traffic in the report "Volume by IP-addresses".
- The program is optimized to run on Linux via wine.
- Updated the database of manufacturers of network adapters.
- Fixed error when receiving a tabular data via SNMP from the MikroTik routers.
- Fixed a bug in calculating the amount of traffic and date periods.


* 4.1 * May 2021
- Added the new "Task Scheduler" function, which allows you to save and send reports by e-mail on a schedule.
- Added columns with the start and end time of the session in the "Traffic volume by IP-addresses" report.
- Accelerated the report generation and chart drawing based on the accumulated statistics.
- Improved the Watchdog internal monitoring service.
- Improved the report exporting to the CSV format.
- Fixed found bugs.


* 4.0 * December 2020
- Added the data saving for the Agent service for cases when it is not polled by the main program for a long time. When the bandwidth monitoring service is not active, the Agent saves the traffic data to the disk locally. When the monitoring service connects to the agent for the first time after that, it transfers all the statistics accumulated earlier.
- Added the traffic chart drawing for the last hour for the selected port. Now you can select a port number from the list of protocols.
- Added automatic enlargement of fonts and windows when the system scaling is enabled.
- Simplified the process of installing the SNMP service on the computer with the program.
- Updated the SSL and SSH libraries.
- The problem of violation of internal indexing of network interfaces has been resolved. Indexes in the program are automatically rebuilt when the serial number of the interface changes in the system.
- Fixed the traffic counting error when working with 64-bit SNMP counters.
- Fixed other minor bugs.


* 3.9 * March 2020
- Added a dedicated service for the program monitoring (the watchdog) which will improve the program stability and provide the flawless operation in case of critical errors.
- Added a new setting "Wait till the check finishing on the service stop". If you disable this setting, this can speed up the monitoring service restarting.
- Added the "Port / Protocol" column to the statistics table "Volume by IP addresses".
- Fixed the host loading and saving (a common file format is now used).
- Fixed found bugs.


* 3.8 * March 2019
- Added ability to exclude the multicast packets from the traffic counting.
- Fixed sending the agent settings from the console.
- Fixed error in the traffic volume counting.

- Added ability to sort the tree by the interface index.
- Optimized operation of some functions.
- Fixed found bugs.


* 3.0 * October 2014
- Improved the program's performance for operating with the bandwidth sensor and host database. The group operations work much faster now.
- Improved the SNMP sensor performance. To use this advantage you need to disable the "Use SNMP WinAPI" option (in the program settings) which was enabled by default in older versions.
- Added ability to load and watch the archived stats (Settings - Statistics - Load archived statistics...). The program will automatically unpack the previously created zip archives and load the statistics files for displaying.
- Added ability to configure the SNMP port number in the sensor settings (161 by default).
- Improved the remote agent's operation.
- Changed the main window design.
- Improved the SMS sending function when using a GSM/3G modem. A long message is now split in several shorter messages but received entirely. Improved the error diagnostics.


* 2.7 * December 2013
- Added ability to generate alerts when the network traffic consumption quickly grows or drops. You can define the per cent of changes between two consistent values for raising alerts.
