Traffic Analysis on ASA 5505

Unanswered Question

I am looking for a way to analyze the traffic coming from an ASA 5505 prior to implementing Priority Queuing for QoS. I have all of the solarwinds engineers toolkit applications available, however I cannot figure out how to configure my SNMP community string for both write and read access. I'm guessing this is a security feature on the ASA.

Is there anything I can use that will give me output similar to NBAR on a router on these ASA's?

Thank you!

You probably need a tool like firewall analyzer

You can try it out for 30 days. This time might help you in getting a good understanding of the traffic traversing your firewall.

The user guide will help you in setting it up.

I hope it helps .. please rate helpfull posts

Is there anything similar in the Solarwinds Engineer's toolkit? I hate to add another tool if we already have something that will work.
