Install monitoring software and configure it. Look at mrtg.

Since you ask a very vague question, it's hard to give a specific answer. What kind of firewall? Running what OS? Do you want a separate monitoring solution, do you want to monitor the network ports on the router behind it, or do you want to see a port-by-port scan?

I am using Linux on my UTM device.... I mean that I have built UTM device and I am using Linux as OS on it.... My firewall has been established by using IPTables.... Now what I want to do is I just want to measure the overall firewall throughput performance of my UTM device....


My UTM has three interfaces

WAN
