Cisco ASA 5505 - Maximum Bandwidth Usage
Posted on 2013-05-20
Managing a Cisco ASA 5505 connected to a DSL modem (10MB upload and about 850kbps download). Total of about 10 users plus three servers.
On Friday, all 10 users were in the office and the DSL connection was functioning as it should. Round trip ping times were where they should be and overall, the speed was good.
Today, there is latency when pinging outside hosts and the connection is slow. The ASDM is showing that the output value for the outside connection is between 850kbps and 900kbps continuous (going on 3+ hours now). Therefore it appears that I am maxing out the upload portion of my DSL connection. There are nine users in the office today and to my knowledge none of them are uploading any files that would take 3+ hours.
What could explain the drastic change from Friday to Monday?
