  • Firewall Top Talkers BETASecurity

    Manage,Product Support

    Tool helps to determine which connections passing traffic through an FWSM or ASA might have the highest bit rate during a certain period of time.The tool takes two separate outputs of 'show conn', taken a few seconds apart, and compares them. It finds the individual connections and does a diff to see how much traffic each connection passed between when the two outputs were taken based on the 'bytes' value. It also lists any new connections found in the second list, but not the first (indicating that the connection was newly created before the second show conn was taken ) or connections that passed some traffic. It then displays a list of the connections of interest, sorted by amount of traffic passed by each connection.Access: All Users
