Needless to say; I agree completely! Purchased, but unfortunately, don’t use GW.
@zeker, I feel your pain and have valued your contributions to this seemingly futile cause.
I just wanna know why most people don’t see the need? Has the Internet, App World and Dumbing-Down of interfaces and advanced needs really got so bad that simple functionality is lost forever?
Brave New World 2.0.!
This might get more traction if members Like the post where it is suggested in the main feature request topic - FYI, a continuation is at a later post:
Like the post on the link below
I just tried to “Like” the post, but it looks like I did that before…
For everyone that sees these messages looking for this “basic functionality feature”, please go to the link and “Like/Love” it also.
I like your message from ages ago that said:
“I guess we’ve got a catch 22 then, Ken. If I had found GW more useful and was using it, I may have frequented the forum more often and seen that [the survey/etc].” - My view exactly!!!, And I tried to say similar in one of my posts - i.e. how can one respond to a questionnaire locked away in a basement that one doesn’t frequent, behind a door that says “Not Working”.
It’s a strange world that makes it so hard to find/discover things and have to “like” something rather than it be common-sense/logic and “cool” added for creativity/functionality. One would hope that creators/developers would not principally rely on pure “social” suggestions/feedback ratings but would also have some gumption to create and steer without relying on the mass popular vote (isn’t that where politics keeps going wrong these days!)
I love the concept and looks of GlassWire… it’s inspirational, visual and attractive! But I won’t install it (or buy it) because, err, it’s not visual in a really really basic and fundamental way… - go figure ! … (somebody, please explain why I don’t get the GW methodology)
I’m really not sure why the developer(s) ignore or can’t grasp/add the (basic/fundamental) “feature” that I (and others) crave so much? It’s like GW were given some code from the future and don’t know what to do with it.
In so far as pandering to user’s needs and extrapolating future needs/development, if GW ignore advanced/basic requests/features/suggestions, then all I can say is: Garbage In/Garbage Out.
Sorry to sound so strongly, I’m not normally like that, but given a brilliant product, it’s so sad to see it fail.
I check the feature requests myself, and I did not notice that this feature was requested a lot as @Remah showed. So, perhaps I should have paid better attention.
We also have an Android app and I do all support and check all feedback for that app and I have never seen anyone request this feature there, and the functionality of that app is similar to Windows.
For me personally, if I want to see a less changes in the graph I will make the time period of the graph longer… then it changes much less. If we had a static slider it sounds really nice, but with real world usage it may cause the usage to get so large the graph is just completely filled up, or the network activity will be so small you can’t even see it. So you’re probably going to spend all your time adjusting the graph constantly… but I guess there are other apps that work this way so perhaps I’m wrong.
Anyway, I don’t recall anyone asking for this feature for awhile so that’s why we’re not jumping to add it but it’s like anything else on GlassWire, and if a lot of people request something we’ll consider it.
I take exception. I have written to Glasswire about this a few times (in the past 3 years.)
It is not difficult to fix the vertical axis.
It makes sense to immediately visualize what the bandwidth.
It does not make sense to keep looking at the scale to see if the large graph is in the KB or the MB or the GB …
Each time people ask for it, Glasswire gives an excuse not to do it.
I was a programmer and realize (as you would) that it does not take much to implement. All competitive products have it.
Please give us a 2019 present and implement it.
Thanks and a Happy new year
I’ve requested it several times over the past two plus years and have largely felt ignored. I’d given up until receiving notification when Remah tagged me in his post. The first time I am aware of this being requested was four years ago: Suggestion - fixed scale for graphs. And you said:
The thread we are now posting in alone has requests going back years. It even refers to and posts a screen shot of Networx (https://www.softperfect.com/products/networx/) from a year ago that works this way despite your claim that you had not been aware of any. (Networx is also what I now use for the graphical display.) So, perhaps more attention is warranted. It seems you rely more on bias of what you think things should be?
And, you encouraged use of the feature feedback thread for this. Take a look at the top liked posts (not that people have used this system reliably). Mine, referenced here, was among the highest number of “likes” among all the posts according the the system you initiated and encouraged and simultaneously seemed to disregard. Ironically, you were one of the people that “liked” my post in that thread!!
Please take a look at this feature request again.
I’ve not used the Android app.
It seems such a simple request, just make the vertical scale fixable at user chosen certain levels of unit and maximum peaks.
If there can be a simple toggle/click to zoom in on the details (as we see in GW now), then all the better.
For me, most of the time, I just like to see current performance right now to confirm everything is working as expected, not every minutia of what is happening bit by bit. Sometimes though, I do like to examine each thing going on in the way GW currently shows, but that’s rare and scary when one realises how much network activity is actually going on, but mostly can be ignored.
An easy to see current and consistent overview would be brilliant to see in GW that otherwise looks fantastic.
