There is constant 10Mb outgoing traffic I can see it on ASA 5520.
Is there any command to find IP address of server/pc making that traffic?

Thank you

The router only passes traffic.  Put a computer on it and install Wireshark. Run Wireshark and see what packets are coming and going. That may provide the information you need.

I use CommView for this, but Wireshark is free to get started.

In ASDM, select the "Firewall" tab. In the lower right corner will be a window "Top Usage Status".  You can then select "Top Sources" or "Top Destinations" to see which hosts are sending or receiving the most traffic.
