Policy Based Routing Feature in ASA

Hi All

I know that the old versions of ASA does not support PBR, and as workarround we may use multiple contexts with different routing (not a good solution). HOwever do we have this feature available now in V9.0 and  are Cisco planning to have such feature.

Thanks in advanced

No, there is still no PBR as of ASA software 9.1(4) (= the latest as of this posting).

I have not heard of it being added to upcoming releases.

We steer customers with ASAs and PBR needs to use upstream routers with the full set of IOS features available on them.

I try to avoid anything but the most basic routing on an ASA the rare many limitations an ASA has as a router.

Update - PBR is on the ASA roadmap. Look for it in 9.4.

From the posted documents, the debug does not seems able to show the traffic been "NAT" through the ASA. Is there a way to show the PBR flow been "NATed" after the PBR-ACL capture the interesting traffic at the Interface? 

Or should we use "packet-tracer" to check it/

Thanks

Packet-tracer is the most reliable method (apart from capturing at an upstream device).

Hi Marvin,

thank you... just wondering if there is a packet process flow diagram to illustrate in ASA. It will help to understand and trouble shoot.

Thanks again.

You're welcome.

Sure - here is a current example (open image in new tab to zoom):

Policy Based Routing is now available in Cisco ASA software version 9.4(1).

See the New Features section in the Release Notes, under Routing Features:

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/asa/asa94/release/notes/asarn94.html#pgfId-116518

 

Policy Based Routing (PBR) is a mechanism by which traffic is routed through specific paths with a specified QoS using ACLs. ACLs let traffic be classified based on the content of the packet’s Layer 3 and Layer 4 headers. This solution lets administrators provide QoS to differentiated traffic, distribute interactive and batch traffic among low-bandwidth, low-cost permanent paths and high-bandwidth, high-cost switched paths, and allows Internet service providers and other organizations to route traffic originating from various sets of users through well-defined Internet connections.
