And it should be borne in mind that in these times Internet it is an element that we use for many tasks related to both work and play. But we don’t always have a connection with ourselves, or it doesn’t always work the way we would like. Also, having some control over the use of this connection can be very useful in certain circumstances.
As we mentioned earlier, we have several specific applications for this, as in the case that we will see in these lines with the BitMeter OS.
How using BitMeter OS will help us
To begin with, we will tell you that this is a useful tool that is responsible for giving us a more detailed understanding of the amount of data we use. In particular, it shows us the online data used by our Windows PC both in real time and at specific periods of time. It also has some nice integrated features to be able to customize and adapt its work to what we need.
One of the main benefits it gives us when measuring the usage of our internet connection is that it shows in great detail what it shows. Thus, after installing it, it launches directly in the window of our favorite Internet browser. To say that this is also completely free open source platform. So its source code can be found at Github platform in this link.
As you imagine, and to make all the data presented more understandable, we can find them in a very visual schedule This will greatly facilitate the connection usage analysis operations that we perform in real time. But that’s not all, in addition to a detailed analysis of Internet usage, we can also set up specific alerts. For example, we can use them when the data is used for a certain period of time.
How to use the main panel of BitMeter OS
After we have installed the program as such and run it to work on the system, as we say, it works in browser Tab. It starts working automatically, showing us from the very beginning how we are using the connection at the moment. In addition, at the top of the main interface, we see a series of tabs that will help us in customizing and adapting the platform.
For example, from the “History” section, we also find the history of Internet use on the basis of graphs. computer We even have the option to create a CSV file with all the data collected in this regard and save it or share it.
In case we want to do without the aforementioned real-time charts and be able to read more specific data, we must move on to Sumary. Here you can see the Internet consumption of data for the current day, month, and even the whole year. Likewise, this may also be the case where we need to collect consumption data for a certain period of time for which we have a request section.
Here we will have the opportunity to set two time intervals, between which we need to familiarize ourselves with the data consumed by the equipment.
Other functions for using BitMeter OS
But, as we mentioned earlier, this is a tool that gives us some additional functions use it in the most efficient way. This is a case of alerts that we can set to notify us about various topics. Thus, we can create alerts about consumption restrictions for certain users of equipment, for certain hours use, etc .; everything from the alerts tab.
Of course, there are times when we may be a little bit tied up with a huge amount of data related to data consumption that BitMeter provides us. At the same time, it may be that we need to work with certain measures of this type. Therefore, the developers of this solution, realizing all this, simultaneously offer us a special calculator for all this.
Thus, as we can see, thanks to this free application, we will have much more control over consumption than our team over the Internet. It is also something that is especially useful if we have to control the whole thing with several users who use the same computer …
How to install BitMeter OS
As we mentioned earlier, we are faced with a free and open source program that continues to evolve and improve. That is why we will be able to download, install and use it without paying a single Euro Well, for all this, the first thing we do is access this link from our favorite internet browser.
Once the corresponding file is loaded, we can run it like any other regular program. The difference here is that this will be done directly in the browser window itself, from which we get access to all the commented out functions. But if for some reason we have problems with the correct operation of the BitMeter OS, browser we can also use his application which is used with its own interface in Windows Well, this operation is very similar to the one described, it’s called BitMeter 2 and can be downloaded from this link.
