Objective
  • When looking at the output from the command 'show session info' in multiple dataplane platform, the command displays the aggregated values for all dataplanes on the firewall.
  • Users are able to select a specific dataplane and check the values from the CLI.
  • This article shows how to view 'show session info' of the specific dataplane from the CLI.


Environment
This article is applicable for multiple dataplane platform as followings.
  • PA-5000 Series
  • PA-5200 Series
  • PA-7000 Series
Note: PA-5220 is not applicable for this article.


Procedure
We can select the desired dataplane to run 'set system setting target-dp' command.
 
> set system setting target-dp ?
  none     none
  s1dp0    s1dp0
  s1dp1    s1dp1
  s1dp2    s1dp2
  <value>  target dp for operational commands


  
Note: This is an example of PA-5260. If platform is different, some outputs might be different.  


Here is an use case.

1. By default, the CLI starts in None. We can check the value to run 'show system setting target-dp'.
 
> show system setting target-dp 
none



2. 'show session info' shows that Number of sessions supported is 33000000. This is the aggregated values for all dataplanes and slots on the firewall.
 
> show session info 
target-dp:                                       *.* 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Number of sessions supported:                    33000000



3. Change the dataplane to s1dp0 and check 'show session info'. The output shows that 'Number of sessions supported' is 11000000. This is the s1.dp0 value.
 
> set system setting target-dp s1dp0 
Session target dp changed to s1dp0

> show system setting target-dp
s1dp0

> show session info 
target-dp:                                       s1.dp0 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Number of sessions supported:                    11000000



4. Change the dataplane to s1dp1 and check 'show session info'. The output shows that 'Number of sessions supported' is 11000000. This is the s1.dp1 value.
 
> set system setting target-dp s1dp1
Session target dp changed to s1dp1

> show system setting target-dp
s1dp1

> show session info 
target-dp:                                       s1.dp1 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Number of sessions supported:                    11000000


5. Change the dataplane to s1dp2 and check 'show session info'. The output shows that 'Number of sessions supported' is 11000000. This is the s1.dp2 value.
 
> set system setting target-dp s1dp2
Session target dp changed to s1dp2

> show system setting target-dp
s1dp2

> show session info 
target-dp:                                       s1.dp2 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
Number of sessions supported:                    11000000
