Traffic Monitoring via SNMP CISCO ASA Failover Cluster

Hi!

I have a Problem Monitoring my Traffic on the created VLANS on a Cisco ASA Failover Setup. Traffic of every VLAN is monitored correctly as long as there is no Switch from the Primary ASA to the secondary ASA. In case of a Switch, there is a high traffic load on all VLANS (for example 10000Mbit) for some seconds.

I think every ASA has it's own Counters for traffic an they are not synched during a Failover.

Moinitoring of the VPN Connection is not enough for me, i need the traffic of every VLAN managed by the ASA.

Does anyone has an idea how to do this?

Thanks

Configure SNMP on both ASA´s and add the sensor called SNMP Traffic. When adding this sensor you will see a list of physical interfaces and VLANs, choose what you need on both ASA´s.

Hi!

That's exactly what we are doing. This ends in the problem in my question. So thanks but your answer is not really a help for me.

Dear happylein,

The SNMP traffic sensors uses the standard IF-MIB counters. Unless the Cisco device offers a global counter, it might not be possible to get the overall traffic.
