Re: how to monitor throughput on pix

You can see this by doing a "show traffic". Take the data transmitted/time and you have your throughput for a given interface.

Pls rate.

Re: how to monitor throughput on pix

Hi, please can you confirm what i am meant to read:

transmitted (in 2533900.146 secs):

17494202977 packets 19217806815234 bytes

6000 pkts/sec 7584001 bytes/sec

Re: how to monitor throughput on pix

Basically, the 6000 pkts/sec has already done the division of 17494202977packets/2533900.146 secs. The 6000pkts/sec is your throughput on the outside interface... Or you can do the same thing for bytes.

17494202977 divided by 2533900.146 gives you 6000pkts thanks

Re: how to monitor throughput on pix

So if i was to do it in bytes:

transmitted (in 2533900.146 secs):

17494202977 packets 19217806815234 bytes

6000 pkts/sec 7584001 bytes/sec

total is 7584001. This firewall can handle 188Mbps. am i correct in saying my reading is 7mbps

Yes. That is correct (according to Cisco's documentation at least).
