How to recognise how many sessions are handled by a router?

Answered Question
Aug 4th, 2010

Is there any command etc available to find out how many concurrent sessions are via a Cisco2821 router? And if yes, is there also a option to find out what is/was the maximum during the day?

I have this problem too.

Netflow will display the number of sessions through a particular interface.


Int gx/x

  ip flow ingress


To display the sessions in real time use the following:


show ip cache flow


Keep in mind the information is in hex. Using a netflow collector is best if you'd like to keep statistical information vs. looking in real time on the command line.   Short of using a netflow collector the 'top talkers' feature in the link belowmay be useful.
