The process netlimiter.exe runs the software LockTime Net Limiter, created by LockTime Software S.R.O. The process netlimiter.exe is an internet traffic control tool to monitor applications which access the internet and actively control their internet traffic. The netlimiter.exe process can set download or upload speed limits for applications or even single connections and monitor their internet traffic.

Upon execution, the file netlimiter.exe allows you to share your internet connection bandwidth among all applications running on your PC. There is an icon on the taskbar next to the clock that pertains to the program. It also has a visible window that displays information, statistics and graphical charts since it has the capability to record inputs. The program basically gives its user very reliable data for controlling and monitoring internet usage.

The NetLimiter also offers a comprehensive set of internet statistical tools which includes real-time traffic measurements and long-term per-application internet traffic statistics.

A brand-new feature in the newer version of the process netlimiter.exe is the grant feature. It is similar to the regular limits, but works distinctively. When you set the Grant for an application or connection, then it means that you grant specified bandwidth for it. If other application or connections take too much bandwidth, then it is taken from them and is given to application or connection with granted bandwidth. The newer version of the netlimiter.exe application monitors and controls traffic separately on three predefined zones such as My Computer, Local Network and Internet. For example, you can limit the traffic rate of your browser downloading from the Internet and let it download from the intranet at full speed.


This is a safe process. There is no necessity to remove this process from your system or change it in any way.
