The program allows a user or a network administrator to manage Internet traffic on the computer or computers by setting up certain rules, priorities and thresholds for processes and applications accessing the Web.
While traffic capabilities of modern networks have grown significantly during last few years, so did user's needs. Social networks, online multimedia, downloadable content, not to mention various OS and software background updates - all these processes apparently consume lot of traffic. Sometimes the overall traffic volume can be so high that a user experiences difficulties with his everyday work.
NetBalancer 6.1 released by SeriousBit offers a way to control the traffic going through a machine or a group of computers by setting higher or lower priorities to given applications or services. Higher priority processes are provided with wider bandwidth, while low priority applications are limited by NetBalancer to free resources for more important tasks. Flexible rules and thresholds a user can apply provide for accurate traffic management in various conditions, while the support for multiple network adapters and local network traffic monitoring ensure problem-free operation in corporate computer environment.
The version 6.1 features better detection of network changes, smoother interface operation and significant traffic rule improvements including traffic filtering and prioritization per URL match. This, for instance, allows allotting more bandwidth to critical applications or restricting social networks access from a corporate net. In addition, the program now isn't divided onto Free and Pro editions offering a single universal solution for network traffic management both for home and business use.
