MRTG PIX and ASA

Unanswered Question
Mar 11th, 2010

Hi,

Can anyone guide me how to configure PIX and ASA so that I can create some graphs on MRTG for example interface utilization , cpu and memory utilization and established sessions. I have a PIX 515E and an ASA 5510 for which I need this. I am able to configure a 3560G switch for interface bandwidth utilization but not for the PIX and ASA.

If anyone has experience with MRTG ... Please help

Thanks

Zeeshan

I have this problem too.

Zeeshan,  personally have not used mrtg,   start on these pages  by looking into snmp  and MIBs supported for both PIX and ASA.

As for collecting  bandwidth utilization  you can simply monitor interfaces the PIX and ASA connect into, if they connect to any of your switches monitor that switch port  through mrtg.   If you want detail traffic   look into netflow  feature introduced in  code version 8.2

Hi,

You need to enable the SNMP on the ASA/PIX as below

snmp-server community community-name

snmp-server host outside/inside x.x.x.x community community-name [ASA]

snmp-server host x.x.x.x community community-name [PIX]


I hope this helps..
