Web Parser – Hyper-V bandwidth usage reports online

Now your customers (VPS users) can see Hyper-V bandwidth usage reports online. We created a free add-on for the Hyper-V Bandwidth Meter, we call it Web Parser. The Web Parser processes the bandwidth usage log files and shows the reports online. Below you can see a sample report. To look at the reports users need to enter a password, so they can see only their virtual machine bandwidth usage. But the Hyper-V server administrator (with the master password) can see all the stats at a time.

Please download Web Parser and read Web Parser Guide to find out more.

sql bandwidth meter 2012

SQL Bandwidth Meter 1.0.2 for MS SQL 2012 is now available.

In 1.0.2 one minor “bug” was fixed. In some rare cases the results of monitoring of long lasting connections were incorrect.

SQL Bandwidth Meter is a unique tool for SQL Server 2012 bandwidth usage monitoring, counting and reporting.

(We also have versions for MS SQL 2000, 2005 and 2008.)

What makes it unique? It provides a bandwidth control on per user basis. With this tool you can see the amount of data used (downloaded and uploaded) by each SQL Server user. Thus you can bill your customers for the SQL bandwidth usage or just find out which customers use your SQL server intensively.

Installation is straightforward and only takes a minute by entering IP address of your SQL server and clicking several buttons.
