Debug a single ip address on ASA 5515

I need to debug/monitor traffic from a specific IP on a Cisco ASA 5515.

I want the terminal to display information about traffic from a certain IP address in the terminal monitor of my ASA

I assume it something like debug ip

Is this possible?

The debug comand is for processes, an IP address is not a process, so "debug <ip address>" will not work.

ASA firewalls have a packet capture capability (like tcpdump) which can be configured to only capture specific packets, but I would guesss from your question that you are more interested in what the ASA does (allow/deny etc) to packets that involve a specific host.

if you were instead interested in what the ASA does to traffic that involves a specific adddress, you could set the log output to debug, and then filtered the log on the IP address of interest.

As pointed out you need  packet capture

Petes-ASA# configure terminal
Petes-ASA(config)# capture capout interface inside match ip host any

Then to see the capture

Petes-ASA(config)# show capture capout
