I hit Ctrl-Shift-Esc to bring up the Task Manager on Windows 8. This time around I paid a bit more attention to the tabs at the top of the Task Manager. Yes, you know these…
This time around I took a look at the tab labeled App history
Now take a quick look at the column labels after clicking on App history. It provides a nice view of the CPU time an apps used, but it also provides details on network bandwidth consumption. The columns provide the following information:
- Network – megabytes of network bandwidth consumed
- Metered Network – megabytes of metered network bandwidth consumed
- Tile updates – megabytes of bandwidth consumed for Tile updates
As an end user or as a developer of an app this is pretty useful information.
