Hi Joseph

ASDM 6.0 has the top talkers monitoring option which fits your scenario. Also Adventnet Firewall Analyzer is a goo 3rd party software for achieving what you want and more

thank you for your fast response, adventnet is kind of big and costly, and does ASDM 6.0 work with ASA 7.2 or should i upgrade to 8.0 ?

any other software suggestions ?

You should upgrade to 8.0

I used CSM (Cisco Security Manager) and Manage-Engine Firewall Analyzer as I suggested. But CSM is much more expensive. I used to try some other softwares in past, cant remember names really but they were useless. Best are above I mentioned.

IOS 8.0.3 and ASDM 6.0.3 rocks so far. Perfect improvement in SSL VPN and monitoring abilities of ASDM

AdventNet is ok, not that great. I used CSM in

the past and it is a horrible product from


I would use Sawmill. It's a cheap product

and can do what you need.
