I have to put a VPN from an ASA5505 to a Cisco VPN concentrator - no problem - however

In the documentation from the owners of the Concentrator they have asked that I set

IPSEC SA Lifetime
  460800 Kilobytes
  28800 Seconds

At the moment my VPN has the default policy of

 lifetime 86400

I can change that easy enough but I cant see how to set a data limit in kilobytes?

If you're using the ASDM GUI:
Configuration | VPN | IPSEC | IPSec Rules
Select the tunnel policy | Edit
 Tunnel Policy (Crypto Map) - Advanced tab
   Security Association Lifetime settings
   Time:    [  8 ] : [ 0 ] :  [ 0 ] hrs min sec  <== default
   Traffic Volume: 4608000  <== default

Default 8 hours = 28800 Seconds
Required Kilobytes is the default
Default settings don't necessarily show up in the configs.

Your IKE lifetime is not the same as the SA lifetime. The IKE lifetime default is 86400.
If the l2l tunnel is working, don't mess with the settings.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
