From the firewall perspective how can i determine the amount of TCP users that are hitting the firewall.

Is there a command or debug that would allow me to see that.

I think the closest you're going to get is with show xlate count.

"show conn | i TCP" will give you all TCP conns through the firewall, but this won't give you a count.

You could always slap this into excel to get a count.

sh local-host | i TCP flow count

will show you the distinct TCP conns each host has. Adding them up will give you the aggregate.

I hope it helps.

Both show connection and show local host would povide you with output for tcp.

But this would be a huge output and diffucult to find a single ip in production network.

A good tool we use is fireplotter which poovides the output for about. Its good one.
