Need software for complete bandwith monitoring and control


Hi everybody. I use Idea netsetter for internet access and it costs Rs 250 for 1GB. At such rates I cannot afford to let Windows 8 waste away bandwidth in the background. It isn't setting the connection as metered connection either.
Is there any application to monitor bandwidth usage, with alert function to notify when an app in background starts hogging it all, and which can be used to allocate bandwidth and kill culprit apps. Is there any app for debian (mint) too?

Networxx is a very good freeware but there's better commercial alternatives are available such as NetLimiter Pro or NetBalancer.

Agree. I have used the trail version. Don't remeber Net Limiter or NetBalancer but it has option ot limit or block bandwidth consumption of a particular software.
