Monitoring Cisco PIX Firewall

eG Enterprise offers a 100% web-based Cisco PIX monitoring model (see Figure 1) that monitors the status of the hardware and connections to the Cisco PIX firewall, and in the process, reports abnormalities (if any). 

Figure 1 : The layer model of a Cisco PIX firewall

Every layer of Figure 1 is mapped to one/more tests that execute on the firewall, and extract critical performance statistics from the SNMP MIB of the firewall.
