  • Analyze Network Traffic on PIX

    Hi there,

    I have several question about analyzing the network traffic from a Cisco PIX 515E.

    The first thing I am doing is to fetch the 'a value' via SNMP:

    snmpwalk -v2c -c public firewall .
    IF-MIB::ifInOctets.2 = Counter32: 1689381836
    # snmpwalk -v2c -c public firewall .
    IF-MIB::ifOutOctets.2 = Counter32: 733047276

    What is this value, how can I calculate this in kb? Can I just calc Octets/1024/1024 to get a valid kb value? Or is there any other (better) value?

    My other question is: how can I measure the used bandwidth on all used interfaces on the PIX? I want to generate a weekly (or daily) report so I can how much traffic is used and so on. So any 3rd party tool which generates their own graphs is not enough for me (I have already ASDM installed).
