Configuring Priority Queuing

I have a question for the ASA ninjas out there.

I have a project to implement QoS on a large group of remote sites that use ASA 5505's for routing as well as a firewall and VPN. Now, I already know that I can only use PQ on these and they are ok with that. What I'd like to know is if there is an easy way to monitor traffic either through the ASDM or SNMP on these devices so that I can get more information about how the bandwidth is currently being used. If this was a router, I would probably go for NBAR to give me an idea of what's going through, but I'm not sure if that feature is available on the 5505's. What would you use to get a handle on bandwidth usage at a remote site with only an ASA?

Thanks again! icon_lol.gif

    Adventnet's Firewall Analyzer is excellent for PIX/ASA traffic monitoring, it parses Syslog to give a wealth of information.

    Is this freeware or at least with a free trial? Funding is an issue here. icon_sad.gif

    I'm also wondering if Solarwinds has something similar. I have the engineer's toolkit, so I'll start poking around there...

    It has a 30 day trial and pricing depends on the device numbers you want to monitor. It's not the cheapest but is an excellent piece of software, also their support is top notch.
