iNet for Network Monitoring on your Mac


I wanted to find out how many devices were on my home network and quickly came across iNet from BananaGlue. I just hooked up a new AppleTV and wanted to get an idea of the activity on my network and if it might interfere with video streaming to my downstairs TV.

The interface for iNet is great and quickly told me how may clients were on my network which was a lot more than I suspected – iPhone, iPad, 2 laptops, iPod, PS3 a couple of desktop computers, and 2 routers. As long as I’m not doing a downloading a huge software update then my home network seems to run pretty accommodate everyone. If things slow down then I can launch iNet and figure out where my network might be bogged down.
