WhatPulse 2.7b1 - smitmartijn - 12-31-2015 05:31 PM

Hello and Happy New Year!

Just in time for 2015 (although, depends on where you are), we're very excited to present the first beta of the new WhatPulse version 2.7. There are 2 major features and a few minor.

High DPI on Windows
Computers with very high resolutions/DPI are becoming the standard, but the client did not present itself properly on Windows. To fix this, we've had to dynamically resize everything inside the client (buttons, views, lists, etc, etc), which is one of the reason why proper Windows high resolution support took longer than the other operating systems.

Check it out and be critical of every interface element. :-)

Types of Network Traffic
The client can measure your network traffic, which is currently used for per interface, application and country traffic for a while. But what about the types of traffic? How much does a certain network port use, or how much traffic do you use for your back-up service?

The descriptions of the types of traffic are dynamic and can change over time. If you want to help fill the database, tell us!

With the new page on the networking tab, you can see exactly how much traffic a network service is using. This is the first draft of that page, stay tuned for more updates of this page in the upcoming beta versions!

Misc Stuff
Besides these great new features, we've also done a lot of work on the local database connection. To keep it simple, we've done some database magic and cut the hard disk usage of the client in half!

Other changes are; a auto pulse option to pulse on every client start and new Advanced setting buttons to manually update your network GeoIP database and the new Network Port Descriptions database (this is for the types of traffic).

Downloads:
You can also use the updater if you have the "check for betas" option enabled.

Updating from 2.6.3-1277? is not working with updater (on Win 10).
Download from link above still 2.6.3-1277 and auto updater tells me there is a new version

I've downloaded the Windows installer, installer just doesn't want to launch after doubleclicking. Cursor is stuck on a 'Working in Background' animation while hovering over the download folder. Tried restarting, redownloading the installer, etc.

Using the Check for Updates with beta checks enabled, it said it found the 2.7b1 update, but then it updated to version 2.6.3-1277 (beta).
I'm guessing this is the 2.7b1 version but it's mislabeled?

I'm running Windows 10 x64 bit.

Edit: Yeah it seems the update is mislabeled, I have the Type Traffic tab in Network, but it looks empty after using it for ~10 minutes: http://i.imgur.com/MtXP1zI.png . Not sure how it's supposed to work though.

WinPCap is required for it to work, same as the applications.

I updated to this beta several hours ago now and the type traffic tab section is still showing up empty like Robby's..I do have WinPCap installed of course, because I have had network stats enabled ever since I was aware it was possible to track them.

I do have WinPCap, network download and upload work just fine. Didn't change anything since updating to Windows 10 though, I still have the Windows 7 WinPCap I think. Traffic Type page is still exactly the same as that screenshot.

Yes, except the auto-updater keeps telling there is an update Wink

Also, I know I haven't mentioned it, but make sure you enable the option for the traffic types in the client settings.

Looks like something is not ok as it is empty
