    How to get traffic count on a specific IP connection?


    Win 10 20H2 Build 19042.928

    Is there any way to collect traffic statistics for a specific IP connection (not for the whole adapter)?
    I know I can run Wireshark or Netsh Trace to collect a packet trace, but I'm interested in only the sent and received byte counts.

    At the moment I'm specifically interested in Remote Desktop traffic so I'd accept a solution specifically related to RDP but I'd prefer a general solution.

    If you would just like to monitor it, you can use Resource monitor. You can filter by app/image and monitor received, sent or total bytes.

    Process monitor can be used with its log files

    Thank you for your suggestions. It looks like Resource Monitor just displays traffic rates rather than total traffic counts. Unless I've missed an option that doesn't give me what I'm looking for. I'll have to look into Process Monitor - I didn't know it even looked at network activity.

    In a few months I'm going to briefly be using an extremely limited metered network connection. I'm trying to determine how network intensive some of my various activities are.

    You are right about resource monitor. Shows bytes/sec.

    Another possibility is NetworkTrafficView by Nirsoft. Not sure if you can do it by app, but you can select traffic by IP

    Thanks. I'll give Network TrafficView a try. Selecting traffic by IP address should be sufficient.

    There is one utility it may do what you want. It's called Glasswire. It's primary function is firewall. But it's not that great at it.. But has very friendly traffic presentation feature.
    May be for you. It can show real time traffic, or traffic by day, week. By app or kind of traffic or publisher...

    Very basic use is free - lucky for your this is net monitoring. Most security features are payed

    OK. I'll give Glasswire a try, too. I cannot find a description of the free version and I see that it starts as a 7-day trial version before changing to the free version. I suspect I'll like it for the first 7 days, but I don't think I'll pay for a firewall just to get a monitor.

    They say:

    The free version of GlassWire includes its extreme network monitoring functionality where you can see your live and past network activity in detail. You can also set Data Alerts to stay under your data limits, and scan your network related apps with VirusTotal. GlassWire's free version also allows you to monitor one PC remotely. The free version of GlassWire has no firewall functionality, and none of our security features are activated with the free version of GlassWire
    Net monitoring stays on. You don't care about firewall anyway

    You could try Process Hacker. To save details highlight entry and copy to text file.

    OK. Another possible solution. I'll try Process Hacker, too.

    I've decided to try these by installing (and removing) them one at a time in case they don't play nicely together.
