Palo Alto Networks firewalls provide Zone Protection and DoS Protection profiles to help mitigate against flood attacks,reconnaissance activity, and packet based attacks. As denial of service attacks can originate from many sources at extremely high rates, the firewall will log these types of attacks differently from other logging events to ensure that the firewall’s resources are not depleted by the attack.

This tech note identifies and describes the key log events and counters of interest related to these log types.
