I have a query and need to understand. we have recently asked for a 16mbps mpls ip vpn link for business purporse. is there a way if we can see anywhere the total bandwidth alloted by the service provider or we need to configure it manually ? also how can we calculate actual link utilization on any given link/interface ?we are using a 2820 cisco router and cisco asa5505 .
You don't need to configure the bandwidth and Bandwidth command never limit the bandwidth on interface , the use of bandwidth command is to set the bandwidth on interface & that is used for calculation of metric in dynamic routing or it is user when you plan to configure QOS.
---- > how can we calculate actual link utilization on any given link/interface
So see the acutal usage , you can use bandwidth monitoring tools like PRTG , Solar wind, Whatsup, Cacti etc. & for that you need to configure SNMP string on router to pull data by this tools. ( Use PRTG Traffic Grapher is easy & good for actual bandwidth monitoring ).
And for more detailed you can use Netflow analyzer for deep inspection of traffic but for that you need to configure netflow in routers.
