Hello

Thanks to lrmoore for helping out with my previous question.

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Routers/Q_21920121.html

imagine I have the same setup, people from the internet are connecting to my servers and uploading stuff.. all connections pass through my router and pix.
is there any way I could see which specific ip host on the internet connected to which server and transferred how much data?

the reason for the question is that sometimes my 2xT-1s get congested and I'd like to find out what kind of traffic is congesting it and which client is using what kind of resources etc.?

Nothing that is the best part.... you need to have a monitor port on a switch with the machine running NTOP listening to the monitor port or put a hub between the router and the network and the NTOP port into the hub...

NTOP works great in promiscuous mode on a SPAN port, or on a hub between the router and firewall, or you can also use NTOP as a netflow collector.
Enable netflow on the router, then export the flow to the NTOP station.
This can be tricky of the NTOP system is on the inside of the PIX, but it is do-able...
