[prMac.com] Cincinnati, Ohio - Code by Kevin has released PacketStream 3.1, an update to its Macintosh network-monitoring program. PacketStream provides point-and-click activation of the Mac's built-in network monitoring program, which is usually available only from the command line. By clicking a few buttons, you can monitor data as it streams over your network--especially useful for checking web traffic, network bottlenecks, or even suspicious network activity. All network data is displayed in the application itself, and you can save the data to a file for further analysis later.
PacketStream compared to Terminal and Unix-based programs:
* Simple to use: Set a couple of user preferences, click a button, and go.
* Save network data to a file for later analysis.
* Monitor traffic on specific network ports.
* Thorough, searchable user documentation via the "Help" menu.
Version 3.1 of PacketStream has the following features and enhancements:
* Now automatically queries system for active network interface.
* Additional network filters for greater control over network monitoring.
* New button command to clear data from main display.
* Additional support options through help menu.
* Various UI enhancements and bug fixes.
Pricing and Availability:
PacketStream is shareware. Licenses cost $24.95 (USD) and a 30-day demo is available. The program is a universal binary and requires Mac OS X 10.5 to run.
