Section 8.4: Monitoring Network Connectivity

Windows XP Professional also has a Networking tab in Task Manager that you can use to monitor statistics about network connections currently in use. Monitoring the activity of network connections will enable you to determine if a network connection is functioning properly. The Networking tab has three parts:

  • Menus that enable users to configure views and options;
  • Charts that show bytes per second through the network interface as a percentage of available bandwidth; and
  • A table that lists measures for each network card.
