Viewing VPN Load Information

Is there a built in tool for the PIX 515E to view VPN load information?  I am familiar with the PDM.  But was wondering if there was in a graph view or something like that to view VPN usage.  Didn't know if there was something I was missing.

Thank you!

The interface graph on the PDM will provide you information on the bandwidth usage of each interface but not for VPN unfortunately.

On the PDM, under Monitoring>VPN Connection Graphs>IPSEC Tunnels you will be able to create a graphical or table view of the current VPN usage or past VPN usage in terms of the number of VPN connection made to the PIX up to a maximum 5 days. However, it won't show you how much bandwidth was used.

When I try to go to VPN Connection Graphs, it's says that Easy VPN is not configured.  What exactly is the Easy VPN?  Should I configure that?

Thanks so much!!!

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

Easy VPN is a type of IPSEC connection using hardware clients instead of the Cisco VPN Client. It has a pretty simple configuration on the client side. Some example of devices that can be used as a hardware client are PIX Firewalls and VPN3002. You don't need to configure Easy VPN in order to use the Graph feature on the PDM.

Are you sure you are clicking on the right category? My guess is you are clicking on the category "VPN Connection Status" instead of VPN Connection Graph. When you click on  "VPN Connection Statistics" and you don't have Easy VPN configured you will ge the following information message:

"VPN connection status information is unavailable since "Easy VPN Remote" is disabled on this PIX".......

Is that the same error you are getting? If yes, then you are definitely selecting the wrong category. What you need to select is "VPN connection graph".

I was clicking in the wrong area, sorry about that!

So there is no graph that shows bandwidth used?  Or am I missing that too?

Thanks so much!
