I have a Cisco 1760 running IOS 12.2 w/Firewall services connected to another PIX 506 Firewall for VPN.

The router has 3 cards: T-1, 100 MB Internal LAN, 10 MB LAN (used for DMZ).

I want to know how much of my T-1 line's 1.5 MB bandwidth is being used.

I'm looking for something like this:

Approx 20% of the T-1 is used for VPN.
60% is used for the DMZ
10% is used for the internal LAN internet access
10% is not used.

I expect I'll get some sort of raw counters and have to compute the %s.  I don't really expect the router to provide the data in exactly this format.

How do I get the data I need?

I have a syslog server setup for monitoring the access rules, if that is useful I can send data to the syslog, if I can mark it with a different souce tag or otherwise sort it out of the other noise at the syslog server.

Thanks,
Brad

You can enable SNMP on the router and collect the stats via MRTG or Solarwinds Network Performance Monitor:
