how to find out download/upload speed of each slot


hello everybody,

from vuze(bit torrent client) it shows my total download speed to be 20.56 KB/s....while my network monitor tool shows a speed around 72.41 KB/s. Similar is the case with upload speed. In much simple words the download/upload speed that vuze shows appears to be less than that shown by the network monitor tool.

I must mention that at the time vuze was running there was no other simultaneous downloads.

I don't understand why this is so???

Is there any tool that can give me the exact information of downloading & uploading speed or rather any tool that can give me the details of uploads/downloads presently going on.

It's likely that vuze isn't calculating the tcp overhead and the network monitor was using the raw system data to extrapolate it's numbers. Without researching the code directly I'd tend toward trusting the system monitor more than vuze.
