What a great little program I've just found here with GlassWire. Like above I was about to switch from Networx but there's one major flaw as far as I'm concerned and I'm surprised to read on this forum of others asking the same thing about the confusing graph auto-scaling for at least the last two or three years.
I really do not want the scale jumping up and down to fill the program's window height, it puts everything out of context and I can't imagine it helping anyone. I need to see how things are performing at a glance and I need to fix the vertical scale according to units I decide and require.
I noticed a stock answer to this question/problem a couple of times which quite frankly doesn't really justify things, it is:
"Do you mean you want to change the scaling? GlassWire automatically scales and shows the most appropriate size for your current network usage, otherwise the graph would be too large or too small to be useful."
No, that is totally the wrong attitude and way to think. If I set my vertical scale to my needs, say 80Mbps, then if I have a low Mbps rate showing then I need it to show exactly that way down the bottom of the graph. It's the only way things can make sense and be properly represented and I just cannot understand why this is not possible.
As things stand, it's like having a car speedometer that always re-scales it's reading to somewhere near the maximum mark but changes the speed units. It (and life) just doesn't work like that and it tells me nothing. I need it to show low when it's low and high when it's high. Stop moving the goalposts, let me fix them in place. I need to alter and fix the scale (and the units used) - at least give me the option to decide for myself between your way and mine.
Sorry, but unless I've missed a setting somewhere, I'm flabbergasted that a fixed scale view is not possible and I'll have to give GW a miss. It can do everything I was looking for except show it. (Oh, and a small/minimal summary tracker view window would be handy too).
