Hi,

Hi,

I dont totally understand your question but Netflow is the right thing to monitor traffic rates with source and destination IP's

Check this link out for it:

Hi James,

Hi James,

I need to get bandwidth monitoring tool which uses snmp protocol or like that,

As well kindly send me the link of net flow software name and link which you are refering.

If possible send me the open source netflow which can be work with Asa 5512 v9.0.1.

Hi, 

Hi, 


Solarwinds is definatly not free for life, not sure about ManageEngine though. Personally for small deployments I have found PRTG Network Monitor to be an excellent started tool that, after the 30 day one month unlimited trial will continue to work but with just 100 sensors (way more than you need for 1 firewall!)

It has both SNMP for general bandwidth monitoring and NetFlow sensors for more specific information such as top ten users. 

See the attachment for an example.

Experience wise, PRTG sucks

Experience wise, PRTG sucks as netflow monitoring. Imagine, we have multiple devices here that support netflow, note that we do not have any netflow configuration on the devices, not one. and PRTG displays freaking data on Netflow, hahaha

and no, this is not a bug since we have consulted the vendor of the devices, and we did try evaluation on Solariwnds, SOlarwinds reports better than PRTG>

Though the best thing about this one is the free 10 sensors.

The best thing that you can

The best thing that you can get out of the ASA is:

1. Interface bandwidth monotring through ASDM
    -Displays the current usage(bps) on an interface
    -Simply go to Monitoring Tab->Interfaces Graph->Select desired interface and graph


2. A very limited top 10 list of end-points with highest bandwidth in the Home Tab Dashboards


If you want granular, well then you need a 3rd party software for that.
Solarwinds NPM+NTA(NetFlow Traffic Analyzer) is one good example

You can do trial (30 days)

Heh, can't really argue with

Heh, can't really argue with using the ADSM for a quick 'n dirty view of whats going on on the ASA, no additional config needed and no 3rd party tools. You forget there is some value in that when you are 100% CLI! 

Silver

When it comes to ASA, it is

When it comes to ASA, it is always good to balance between ASDM and CLI
You get a better view on the access-rules you have configured, and better monitoring as well since it is able to at least show you historical data even if its just 10minutes or so.

HI,

HI,

I think you are not getting my question,Kindly tell me the way to divide total 30mbps bandwidth into chunks of 10-10-10 mbps that i can use as per my convenience.

I have two cisco devices asa firewall 5512 and SG-300, if any product can help me for solving the purpose,it would be a wonderfull service for from your end.

Silver

haha oh okay, you can do that

haha oh okay, you can do that on the ASA, using the service Policy Rules, QoS Feature

Using ASDM, go to Configuration Tab->Firewall->Service Policy Rule
It's all in there, just configure:
1. Source and Destination Networks
2. The QoS Tab  - this is where you police/control the traffic

Hi,

Hi,

You can use Netflow-9 for monitoring traffic of ASA Firewall 5512.

Dear Jerry,
