ASA Equivalent to show interface summary on a router

Hi All,

 

What is the equivalent to the Cisco router command "show interface summary" for an ASA?  If you are not familiar, this commands prints current TXD/RXD bandwidth usage in a concise, neat & charted manner.  Example is attached.

 

Thanks.

As far as I know there's no equivalent command on an ASA.

We have to run a couple of commands to get a similar data set and even then it's not nice and tabular.

1. get the interfaces you care about (e.g. that have an IP Address), and

2. Grab traffic statistics for each.

sh ip adr

sh int <int number> stats | b Traffic

Output of the second command looks something like this:

ASA# sh int e0/0 stats | b Traffic
  Traffic Statistics for "inside":
176390317 packets input, 40380592616 bytes
198978813 packets output, 144870043968 bytes
428718 packets dropped
      1 minute input rate 68 pkts/sec,  12997 bytes/sec
      1 minute output rate 64 pkts/sec,  24225 bytes/sec
      1 minute drop rate, 0 pkts/sec
      5 minute input rate 63 pkts/sec,  8693 bytes/sec
      5 minute output rate 56 pkts/sec,  12316 bytes/sec
      5 minute drop rate, 0 pkts/sec

How about for a PIX?

The commands I mentioned have been around since at least PIX 7.0.

Please tell me you're not running anything that old still. ;)

Hi, others command are:

ciscoasa# sh run ip   
!
interface GigabitEthernet0
no nameif
no security-level
ip address 10.1.1.10 255.0.0.0

ciscoasa# sh run int

!
interface GigabitEthernet0
no nameif
no security-level
ip address 10.1.1.10 255.0.0.0
!
interface GigabitEthernet1
shutdown
no nameif
no security-level
no ip address
!
interface GigabitEthernet2
shutdown
no nameif
no security-level
no ip address
!
interface GigabitEthernet3
shutdown
no nameif
no security-level
no ip address

Good luck!

Hello,

I do not know if this thread is still active, but this command gives me very useful statistics about current interface bandwidth on ASA:

show traffic

HTH!
