Re: new sessions and max sessions

Hello,

 

Max sessions would be the maximum supported sessions that the device can concurrently sustain, new sessions would be either new sessions since boot up or rate of new sessions established per second.

 

You can use this command to find out all that information:

 

> show session info 

 

You'll get an output like this:

 

show session info

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Number of sessions supported: 65534
Number of active sessions: 134
Number of active TCP sessions: 105
Number of active UDP sessions: 29
Number of active ICMP sessions: 0
Number of active BCAST sessions: 0
Number of active MCAST sessions: 0
Number of active predict sessions: 0
Session table utilization: 0%
Number of sessions created since bootup: 282139
Packet rate: 30/s
Throughput: 96 kbps
New connection establish rate: 0 cps

Additionally you can see live stats by using this command:

 

> show system statistics session 

 

hope this helps,
