Pinpoint data usage by website

We have had Exede 12/10 for about 4 years now and up until the last couple of months we usually only used 7 of the 10 gb's. Last month we hit 70% 2 weeks into the cycle and this month was a little better at 3 weeks before recieving the 70% notification.

What I would like to know is, is there any way to find out at which visited websites most of the data was used at? I looked at the esvt tool it's very nice and all but just gives categories of data that were used. If it said which site/sites I used most data at I would at least be able to recall going there and be better able to alter my browsing.

I heard reality ripple mentioned on the Wildblue/Exede world forums would that program be able to tell me data usage by website? 

Thanks, 
DS

David, Reality Ripple only gives you the same information as the Exede meter. If you would like a better breakdown of what sites are using your data, you need to install the free Glasswire software. This runs only on Windows machines, and must be installed on each Windows machine on your network. Another option is to obtain a wireless router that has robust data monitoring software. Several routers are available with this, the ASUS routers are some that do that.

The Glasswire software is free, and is available at https://www.glasswire.com/download/
