Hey folks,

We run a number of webservers, database servers all on a windows 2000 network, situated behind a PIX firewall.
I would really like to know what our overall bandwidth utilization is and so, was wondering:

1. Can you recommend a toll/software for the job?
2. How would it be used in an environment like ours...some install/setup help would be a big help.

Thanks in advance.

Darrell

If you have a router in front of the PIX, you can easily get interface utilization statistics from it.
Else, you can use the web GUI to the PIX to monitor near realtime interface utilization, along with some historical stats.
