Great but stops after a while in MacOS high Sierra

Since upgrading MacOS high Sierra it freezes after a while and I need to restart it

Best network speed monitor on the App Store

This app should be built into OSX!

This small little application has been running on my Mac since more than 5 years now. I’ve been looking to it every single minute since.

Accurate speed. You can switch between bytes and bits in the app settings.
Eats very low system resources. If your Mac is built after 2010 you’ll be fine.
Amazing author support. In the exceptional occasion you do have issues the author will help you out.

If your work depends on your internet (or LAN) connection do not look any further. This is by far the best monitoring app on the market.
Mature app. I love it.

After a period of time it freezes

After a period of time it freezes and does not update any more.
I tried "Reset Data Stats” and it doesn’t work neither. The only way to fix this is to quit and reopen it.
