Question [Q] wireless traffic.

been looking all over. is there an app or anything that will give me a run down of what apps are accessing my wireless (wifi or mobile) data and how much they use? my battery life has been really low over the last 3 weeks (6 hours on standby) and all of a sudden I'm only down 15% overnight with wifi on.

there was a nice app that did all that and locked out what you wanted but that seems to be gone and I heard it was bricking phones.

or am I totally way off the beam here.

not sure if this will help but there is an app built in to settings-data usage. it shows what and how much an app has used. gives an option to restrict background data. if you hit the menu button you can pick to show wifi and mobile data. as far as a stand alone app from market, not sure, never looked for one.
