traffic meter

A router (or Wi-Fi router) feature that will monitor the data consumption (upload and download) of all the devices on your network and notify you when you approach a predefined threshold. A traffic meter is useful if your ISP is enforcing a maximum monthly data transfer allocation (typically this is 250-GB).
