Are you looking for total bandwidth utilization, or individiual connections?

If total bandwidth, set up MRTG to read the SNMP counters off of the pix.

If individual connections, you will need additional hardware and/or software

- a managed switch with a port mirroring the outside interface of the pix, and a pc monitoring that mirrored port running ntop

- a software package reading the pix's logs and monitoring its connection creation and destruction

Hi ,

You can use ' Capture ' command in PIX to capture analyse the traffic patterns.

Please refer the below link
