Mrtg+Cisco PIX


hi

i would like to monitor my bandwidth using MRTG

but i have some constraints here

1. Net connection goes via PIX firewall
2. i dont have access to that pix

but still i want to monitor whether any bottlenecks from LAN to internet?

Not going to get very far if you dont have any access to the pix firewall. At minimum you would need the SNMP read community name to even get the info about the port you're connected to.

If you're wanting to watch your bandwidth tell MRTG to track usage of your PC's NIC instead of the Pix...

We'll all you could do is put a inexpensive linux box between that port on the pix and your network. You'll need 2 nic's and just use the box as a gateway for your network..

Also your lan obviously runs to a switch before hitting the pix so what is the switch?

Yes i am trying the same way,
redirecting all the users gateway address thru the linux box and bringing up mrtg over there..
