Which isakmp policies are being used?

I have 30 or so ipsec crypto maps that peer with mixed vendor equipment to set up ipsec/isakmp vpns using psk. I also have quite a few crypto isakmp policies that are weak (des) and some that aren't probably used at all.

Is there an easy way to tell which crypto maps (peers) are using which isakmp policies? I want to consolidate both phase 1 and phase 2 to use the more secure isakmp policies and ipsec transform sets.

I first wanted to map my crypto map section to particular isakmp policies after running isakmp debugs to see which ones were being used, but this doesn't seem possible. How do network administrators gain the information to consolidate the isakmp policies?
