Hello All,

Can somebody tell me how can I get bandwidth value for Internet connection?

I need to see a Delphi source code for it... If it possible.

there was some code called  netmon, that calculates & displays bytes in/out per sec.,
total bytes in/out, and peak bytes in/out per sec.for each installed
network interface. You can easily adapt it to suit your needs.
Ill see if i can find it.

Thank you for reply,

but problem is: I need to know bandwidth before I will open sockets. I need to know for choosing best way for transferring huge array of data.

I dont believe that value is stored anywhere, since it is determined at server side?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I think Windows knows this value. And Windows gets it after connect to the Internet. I only need to get this value...
Probably somebody knows how to do it.
