Monitoring Inside and Outside Internet Connection of ASA




i want to monitor inside trafic and outside traffic in one graph with Netflow v9. I know i have to play with filter but i cant get it working.

What do i need to enter in the Filter section?

InboundInterface[????] and OutboundInterface[????]

I have tried the names of the interface which are configured on the ASA. But it seems no data are arriving at PRTG. I i add a Netflow sensor without Filter data is coming from ASA, so this is working.

How can i easily monitor inbound and outbound traffic in one graph?

thx in advance woischi

asa inbound outbound

do you want two lines (channels) to show traffic in & out separately? This would need a Custom Netflow Sensor actually. The filter will only reduce the traffic (to an amount matching the filter definition), but then in the sensor results you will still see the different traffic types (protocols like HTTP, etc.).

best regards.
