threat-detection configuration on ASA5520 Version 8.2(1)


I want to get statistics about how often I am under attacks and the nature of the attacks.

I read many documents about how to activate threat-detection in ASA v8. For this, I need to type the following command: threat-detection basic-threat. Unfortunately I don't have this command and I don't have "show threat-detection statistics port/protocols" either.

The only available commands are: "threat-detection statistics tcp-intercept ...".

I am in a ASA5520 in version 8.2(1) in configure terminal.

Do you have any Idea why these commands are not available?

Many thanks!

According to command reference link for 8.2.x, the command does exist.

Also  shows you what is default.

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I already saw this documentation.

As I said these commands should be available but for any reason, I don't know why they don't appear.

Here you can see that I have only the threat-detection statistics command available:

SPGLO0001FW/BACK(config)# threat-detection ?

configure mode commands/options:
  statistics  Keyword to configure statistics of threat detection

What could be the reason? Is a license needed?

If it helps, below the show version result:

SPGLO0001FW/BACK# sh ver

Is this multiple context?

If so it is not supported.

It says that in the table in that link that I posted previously.
