ASA unfortunately can hold data for 5 days maximum.

You would need to use a third party monitoring product to monitor the FW resources via SNMP.

Re: monitoring firewall resources

For CPU and memory utilization, you can use SNMP to monitor the ASA.

The command if you would like to check it on the ASA itself:

show cpu usage

show mem

To check the number of vpn connections:

show vpn-sessiondb summary

Hope that helps.

Hi Jennifer,

Thk you for your response, but i would like a monitoring tool that can generate report to tell me the utilisation of the cpu/memory of my asa5510 on a daily/weekly/monthly basis so that i can know during which time period there is high utilisation of memory and cpu on my asa5510. Pls advise.
