We have two Juniper SSG 5 firewalls which setup by a resigned engineer.
Firewall 1 had enabled bandwidth monitor and firewall 2 don't.
I want to setup firewall 2 to have bandwidth monitor as same as firewall 1(refer to the screenshoots), and i do not want to use external server to collect snmp data, just simple local bandwidth information is good enough to me.
could someone show me how to do it?
Thank you.

Have you looked at the configuration file?  It should give you an idea.  I don't have access to our firewalls right now.

There are folks stating that you can see that only if you have set up the max. interface bandwidth, but Juniper KB says it just works.
But keep in mind those stats aren't acculumulated or collected in any way, they are about just that second, so very volatile. It might be that you do not have any traffic.

Not using SNMP doesn't really tell you anything about the used bandwidth, because you at least needs some sustained data for say 5 seconds to have something useful.

JNet sources are a bit confusing, some articles state that you only get non-zero results if there's traffic shaping configured on the firewall.
As @giltjr says, comparing the 2 config files (and possibly the OS versions) would be a start.

Do either of your firewalls have this command in their config?  And are they running the same OS version?

Get traffic-shaping interface

eeRoot's posted command will only display momentary interface statistics; it does not tell whether traffic shaping is active. If anything, get traffic-shaping mode might tell, and be different between the devices.
