Hi,

Yes i am unable to find a tool that can give me a detail report of the system resources(cpu and memory) of my pix/asa firewall. I have tried using firewall analyzer and netflow both of which do not seem to analyse on system resources of my pix/asa firewall. Thk you!

Hi Don,

ASDM can generate graphs of the firewall's CPU and memory utilization under the Monitoring > Properties > System Resource Graphs tab. However, you would need to generate these manually so I'm not sure if that helps. You can also use a script to SSH/Telnet to the firewall and run the 'show cpu usage' and 'show memory' commands to get these statistics as well.

You could also check out the MARS product, which may have a more automated approach to what you're looking for:

Hope that helps.
