Recommendations for AnyConnect VPN usage reporting?

Unanswered Question
Jun 29th, 2010

I am implementing AnyConnect VPN in my organization.  What are recommendations for reporting tools?  For administration and support, it would be useful to have reports of things like:

  • Average & peak user counts
  • Most recent log-on by a given user

I know that ASDM has live data, and that I could use a tool like MRTG to produce my own graphs, but is there an existing, popular software package that is designed for the ASA or AnyConnect VPN to do this?

I have this problem too.

For non cisco product   you can look into Firewall Analizer from Manage Engine excellent reporting tool brakes down  traffic traversin  the firewall VPN  or regular traffic  in a very nice graphical fasion , including VPN users logins reports . .. it support  Cisco  firewall devices ,  you can try their demo.  There may be other products out there that may be free , Im not aware of one ,   do a google search. 

Cisco Security manager  seems to be  good solution  personally have not used it

Use logging for a simple monitoring tool:

Every event in the ASA is monitored, so create a list and monitor only the events that you want: user connection, user disconnection, etc

Go to the "advanced syslog" section of the article and check the example, also check "Capture VPN Traffic Syslog Messages" change the class to webvpn or SVC I think...

if you want to know the syslog messages that you want to watch go to the document "Cisco Security Appliance System Log Messages"

Of course logging is not a monitoring tool it is just an information tool, but at least you can monitor simple events.
