    NPM reporting ASA incorrect bandwidth


      the ASA interface shows a 1 minute input rate of 8540094 bytes/sec (8.5Mb) but NPM reports the interface is 86% utilization of 100Mb/s. why is that?

        • Re: NPM reporting ASA incorrect bandwidth

          In this interface,  is configurate a real bandwith ?

          My question is if the bandwith is 1 GB Or 10 GB for it. ?

                You can remove this image, have informations confidentials MAC address and IP address.


                You can see in percente utilizations, package per second, average packet size  but not show what time are this winformations. If are last 24h hours or 12h hours.


                And If Orion have configurate for defaul you can see estatistics for 1000mb/s but if your traffic is  2GB/s show informations error.


                Please look this inforamtions about managent interface  with NPM

                  • Re: NPM reporting ASA incorrect bandwidth

                    the ASA is a 1Gb interface but it is configured as 100Mb full duplex.

                    NPM is using the default setting which seems to pick it up as 100Mb. That seems correct but gives the wrong usage stats.

                    if i change NPM bandwidth to 1000Mb/s it seems to give the correct value. Is that the answer to the problem?


                    Thanks for your help
