FirePlotter shows real-time Internet traffic on Cisco PIX, ASA, and Fortinet

I ran across this cool firewall tool called Fireplotter. It graphs and shows real-time Internet traffic going through your Cisco PIX, ASA, or Fortinet Firewall. You can use it to:

  • Find out why your internet connection seems to have slowed down
  • Identify unfamiliar connections
  • See Bandwidth Hoggers
  • Track down Virus or Malware infected PCs
  • Monitor undesirable Website Usage
  • Check that email is flowing in and out
  • Check that VPNs are up
  • Use Basic View Mode to summarize traffic, Advanced View Mode for details
  • Monitor network availability

I like that the free “watch only” version is available to be used at no cost! The commercial versions offer more features and are tiered per the size of your firewall.

You can download Fireplotter and read more about it at: www.FirePlotter.com
