TCPMeter/network monitor

Post by dispo »

a while back there used to be a network meter that relied on the TCPMeter.dll plugin which is no longer working on more recent versions of windows.

heres an example of a skin that used this https://www.deviantart.com/glfsd/art/System-Information-1-02-133878369

with the PowershellRM plugin and the ability to run powershell scripts, as well as run commands, would it be possible to build something similar to this using the powershell Get-NetTCPConnection cmdlet https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/nettcpip/get-nettcpconnection?view=windowsserver2019-ps

From what it looks like, you should be able to use the run command / or, NB I havent used it - the PowershellRM plugin likely to work as well.

I don't see why not - if PowerShell gets the data you need, RunCommand and the meter system should have no problem displaying or managing the result in a visually satisfying fashion. That being said, it looks like what you would like to see is something similar to what Microsoft's TCPView is displaying. Since that tool apparently also has a command line version inside, you might be able to run that directly from RunCommand and hopefully pass the string outcome further to Rainmeter measures / meters in order to display things the way you want, or react to that data - if the tool works properly in Windows 10, that is.

Other than that, NirSoft seems to have some similar tools. A Google search by "show tcp connections of running processes" should give you more options that you can work with. I have no idea which one is easier or more compatible to work with, but starting things step by step with just a single value to display should make things more reasonable in that regard, as you can always add to it later on.

If you know the commands to get the data you need then use those in side the Update function of PowerShellRM script. Just Make sure Output is a string value, or integer. If you provide the appropriate commands I can give an example.
