Whatpulse is not recognizing internet traffic

Whatpulse is not recognizing internet traffic

It records the traffic under the summary, but it does not get pulsed.
I assume it counts as Local Traffic.

In this particular case i was syncing to Google Drive.

Is this a router setting i need to change for the internet traffic to be counted correctly or something similar?

Prime example of what's going on.
And it's not my PC. Same thing on 3 different PC's.

RE: Whatpulse is not recognizing internet traffic
I have a similar problem - with all PCs and Linux/Windows. Above a certain speed, traffic is not counted. Started realizing it when my internet became faster than ~200MBit. So above something like 20MByte per second it suddenly is not counted at all - I suspect that the library being used can't cope with that amount of data - or it's a safety thing. I also noticed more memory leaking (it got better over time - the early client was a real problem there) the faster you transfer data. Found that out by using FileZilla and activating speed limits.

I guess the problem would only solve itself if network traffic would not be inspected anymore and all traffic would be counted equally, it being internal or external - that would just require reading the information from the network interface.

Would be nice to hear something from the Devs.
But people with +1 PB upload can't really have that restriction imposed on them.

RE: Whatpulse is not recognizing internet traffic
Well... I looked at the top guy and it looks plausible... -> max. I could see was 50GB download in an hour from one pc -> ~14MB per second, that falls below 20MB per second.
The guy has 5 PCs -> each of them could be running at e.g. 15MB per second and it would add up over time. Traffic monitoring is a feature for years now...

I also noticed that it depends a bit on the hardware and OS. newer pc could handle a bit more... but that might also just be either a coincidence or me not measuring properly Wink

What does that have to do with my thread?

RE: Whatpulse is not recognizing internet traffic
You could try exchanging WinPcap with Npcap. https://nmap.org/npcap/
WinPcap does not support NDIS 6.0 which is used since Windows 7 and so traffic can slip through.

On the WinPcap page you are also referred to Npcap, which I have been using for several months now and have no problems with it. (No guarantee)
Quit WhatPulse -> uninstall WinPcap -> install Npcap and start WhatPulse. Maybe a restart if it doesn't work immediately.

Here you can also find the hints of the WinPcap developer: https://www.winpcap.org/
