Thank you Alex. I downloaded it and checked out the options. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to do what I would like even though the screenshot looked promising.
Luke, have you tried the built in ActivityMonitor app ? Run it up then hit the Network tab ?
Just knowing the percentage of network is not going to give you full picture of what is going on.
At the very basic level you would want to know traffic in and traffic out.

Hi Alex, you're right. However I like the simplicity of a graph which shows if I'm about to max out my network connection. Activity Monitor does show how much traffic is going in and out but doesn't show it as a percentage of the speed of the network port, unlike the Windows "Network Utilization" graph.

Hi Mark, yes, the Activity Monitor is good for seeing how much data is going up and downstream. It just doesn't show at a glance if the network port is about to run out of bandwidth and that's what I would like.

Hi Mark, thank you for finding this utility. It has a very nice interface but unfortunately doesn't show at a glance if the network port is about to run out of bandwidth.
I think I might just ask Apple to update their Activity Monitor to show this view of bandwidth. With a bit of luck they'll do it.
