I have asked this before, but didn't really get any replies, so forgive me if I have another go.
A lot of people seemed to be using net monitors of various types. I have tried several, but all of them seemed to record not only uploads and downloads but also broadcast traffic. This broadcast traffic is making a mockery of any meaningful results, this is a screen shot:
The first figures are for a week, the second is for a month, I installed this program last week so the April figures are for about one week only. The May figures are for two days! The computer has been on, but the Internet Hasn't been used all the time. Even when the internet is not being used the network card is still connected, therefore the monitor is still recording traffic as it should.
The question I really want answered is, if you are on a capped service, is the broadcast traffic included or excluded in the cap? If its excluded it seems a bit of a waste of time trying to monitor your own personal traffic using all the normal Internet monitors I've tried.
Any comments please?
By the way, I've tried both Windows and Linux monitors, they're both the same as I would expect.
