Monitor activity (bandwidth, VPN usage) on a Cisco Pix 515

I'm looking for a basic (at the least) program that can give me monitor Pix 515 Internet bandwidth load information (and show trends).

Yes, I am familiar with PDM..... I'm looking for a third party tool that gives me just the data without the power or security.

In addition (a separate problem is acceptable), I'd like to monitor VPN usage.  Bonus points if someone can suggest a VPN management program that interfaces to the Pix 515.  The suggested program would allow me to not only monitor VPN usage but also add/delete VPN clients as logging into the Pix to do this is time consuming.

These programs need to work in the Windows 2K or newer environment and be within the budget of a small business.


Thank you,
Shawn

Wow! Great find Yan_west!

It certainly shows a lot of information but the only part it doesn't seem to do is show real-time traffic status.  Unless I missed this.

You'll get full points for this!

In addition, I'd really (also) like a real time graphical display of traffic (bandwidth usage) and in addition, VPN usage and management; I'll offer double points for a solution.

It's not in real time, but you get the traffic between an certain interval of time, let's say i need it for the entire week, it will show it to me.

I'm still looking for a real-time traffic reporting s/w for the Pix.  Yan_west will still get full points (125) for this but I'll offer another 125 points to anyone who suggests a real-time monitor for the Pix (outside of PDM).
