Traffic consumption plays an important role when working with proxies. What is traffic, and how can you monitor and compare it with our metrics?

You'll learn from this article!

Traffic is the amount of information transmitted over the network. Traffic can be inbound and outbound:

  • inbound traffic is the information that you receive from the network to your device or server;

  • outbound traffic is the information sent from your device.

To properly control traffic consumption in real-time and compare it to our metrics, we recommend using NetWorx Bandwidth Monitor.
To check what amount of traffic is spent, you should follow these steps:

  1. Download NetWorx Bandwidth Monitor.

  2. Open Settings, and in the main tab, tick Ignore local traffic within the LAN:

  3. Open website to download a network test file.

  4. Open NetWorx Usage Report, and reset all the data before performing a test:

  5. Connect to SOAX proxies and download a 1 MB file from

  6. Turn off SOAX proxies, open your dashboard, and compare the metrics between NetWorx and SOAX:

That's it! The metrics are equal. Take care 🙌
