Bandwidth evaluation from PIX Device Manager

Hello All,

I am trying to determine if my current bandwidth is meeting my needs. I have 512K symmetric at a location, but they are reporting slowness.  I looked at the bit rate graphs from within the PDM, and looked at the input/output bitrates on both the inside and outside interfaces. My question is this - which graph represents my "upload" and which is my "download". The reason I ask is because I am considering moving to cable modem which is 1.5 down/256 up, and I need to know if I am exceeding my upload.

Thanks!

The output Bit Rate on the Outside interface should show you how much data you are pushing out - "upload"

Then is the input on the inside interface "download"?

input on the outside interface is download..destination is to the inside interface
output on the inside roughly equal to input on the outside = download

output on the outside roughly equal to input on the inside = upload

Keep in mind that the direction is respective to the actual interface, not the inside or outside networks. Each interface is like a door.  The PIX is like a room with a door on each side. Inside this room, the doors are marked "out", while the other side of the door is marked "in". What's coming in through the outside door will most likely exit the room through the inside door and vice versa...
