I have recently checked out the ASDM package and I really like the information that you can see in it, speed / active vpn tunnels etc.
But is there anyway you can have "ASDM" on a already CLI configured ASA without messing it up? I just want the information, not configure the ASA from the ASDM.
I read the docs and they pretty much want a clean install and you have to pick ASDM
or CLI configuration and stick with it, or it gets messy.
I'm currently polling my ASA to a MRTG but I cant see active ipsec/vpn tunnels / specific host data flow.
Sure I could get this through commands in CLI but... well ASDM is nice :D
Iam using ASDM exactly in this way .. ASDM provide great service for monitoring but I have never used it for configuration.. I want control on my configuration so i trust only CLI (there are also few commands unsupported in ASDM)
You can install and use ASDM for monitoring without doubts - your CLI configuration is unaffected until you do configuration tasks in ASDM
