Hello,



I have a couple of questions on LMS 2.6 or VMS 2.2


1) Can it monitor a 2811 and an ASA5505?

2) If there is a 2811 and a 5505 on each side of a WAN can it tell me what the bandwidth utilization between the 2 sites is?




Thanks in advance.  All replies rated.

Both products are end of life, and VMS 2.2 is now end of support.  LMS 2.6 can manage both a 2811 and an ASA5505 in terms of inventory, configuration, syslog, and fault.  However, it cannot measure bandwidth utilitzation.  LMS does not provide any end-to-end bandwidth utilization measurement, but you can use the Internetwork Performance Monitor tool to look at latency and round-trip response time between the 2811 and the ASA.

Thanks Joe,



Do you have a recommendation for a Cisco product that can be used to managed the devices while giving stats shuch as bandwidth utiliization, delay, etc. between the 2 sites?

LMS can do most of what you want.  Though you should consider moving to 3.2.  For bandwidth used between two nodes, you would want to look at the Network Analysis Module which can sit in the 2800.  You could also look at NetFlow data from the 2800 using the Cisco Multi-NetFlow Collector.
