WhatPulse 2.7b3 - smitmartijn - 01-26-2016 08:18 PM

I've just put version 2.7 beta 3 online, with a bunch of fixes, improvements and a new option.

Record Unknown Traffic
Due to the nature of some download services, the traffic types recording could cause the whatpulse database file to grow pretty substantial in hard disk size. These download services use a lot of different network ports for network traffic, which all was counted and stored by the client. These ports are almost always unregistered network ports and they do not exist in the network ports CSV file.

There's a new option on the Traffic Types page which is called "Record unknown traffic types" - and only by enabling that option, those unregistered network ports are stored by the client. It's default off, which would leave the whatpulse database file much, much, much smaller by default.

If you've had this on since beta 1, I suggest you update to 2.7b3, reset the per traffic type statistics and leave the option disable to save disk space.

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

I'm running avast! antivirus and I had to disable it to install this version because it would keep sandboxing the installer and the program afterwards. Hasn't happened with previous versions

Also, the release notes in the email link to 2.7b1 instead of 2.7b3

That weird; I'm using Avast! on my build & test machines, hasn't happened there. Which version and are the definitions up to date?

I'm working on a developer site where the Client API is explained in detail and provides examples (almost done). For now, just put your browser to http://localhost:3490 - it provides you with an index and a small intro.

Here's the version: http://i.imgur.com/9TFts3e.png
I think it's up to date.
To clarify, when I first launched the installer, it sandboxed it for a bit, then it returned to normal. After the install, I would keep getting a "CrashRpt has stopped working" message under the "Avast DeepScreen" frame, which appeared 2-3 times until I disabled the antivirus temporarily. I'm assuming that it would keep appearing because of the watchdog relaunching it constantly.

Afterwards I could re-enable the antivirus without a problem, so I don't think this is really that huge an issue.

I really love it! I've to understand how to check it outsite home network. If you have a laptop could be a problem check it.
I'll try with my Mac at home.
In any case this thing it's fantastic!!

Hi smitmartijn,
do you plan to push data or just get them?
