I want to check the current throughout and bandwidth on the firewall, how can i accomplish that ?

I have Checkpoint running on Secure Platform.

Please advise.

Also, how do you constantly monitor this firewall's bandwidth and connections ?

It has the SmartView monitor but our license doesn't let us install that.

So, i was wondering about the commands on the console that can give me these stats . I tried fw ctl pstat, which gave me the number of TCP connections, but not the bandwidth.

Only the smartview monitor will meet your requirements.  The next thing I can think of is using a trial version of solarwinds engineer toolset for 30 days then use their bandwidth monitor.
