Is there any software to monitor the bandwidth of Cisco pix site-to-site VPN? Basically we need to know the bandwidth

utilized by each tunnel. Interestingly, the Cisco Secure Policy Manager is geared mainly towards managing site-to-site VPNs rather than remote-access client VPNs. It might not be within your budget for a VPN monitoring tool, but it does the job okay.

There is a MRTG based monitoring tool that has the beginnings of being a good tool to monitor VPN in a PIX. Please go to the following site: http://garnel.com/mrtg/pix-vpn.html. I haven't used it personally but I reviewed it for our corporate VPN purposes and seems okay for our IT group.
