A tool to know the exact consumption of its bandwidth on its router, this is what Georgia Tech is working on, via a project funded in particular by Google. Installed on the router, the tool in question would have among other functions to specify if the bandwidth corresponds well to that announced by the operator, and to know which device consumes the most.
Called Bismark (router side) and Kermit (computer side), this set of tools therefore makes it possible to monitor the bandwidth of its connection and its consumption by each device in the house. The reason for the creation of such a tool, for Georgia Tech, comes from the fact that Internet service providers are becoming more and more restrictive in the United States.. So it’s about create an easy to use tool, so that each Internet user can know everything about their line in a few clicks.
