Looking through a log on a Cisco PIX, when it's disconnected from the network I can see this line:

%PIX-6-302010: 7 in use, 128 most used

Is there a command I can run that will give me this info? (without pulling the network cable out of the firewall!) It's useful to see the number of current, simultaneous connections and also the peak figure. Thanks.

Are you looking for just connections or VPN users?

Just connections, log in to the device in enable mode and run:

sh conn count
