How to Determine Log Rate on Panorama Devices with a Log Collector
This document describes how to determine the logging rate on Panorama with a Log Collector.
- PAN-OS 7.0 and above.
- Any Panorama.
When a Panorama Virtual Machine or M Series is configured in Panorama Mode with a Log Collector and is managing firewalls, the logging rate can be obtained using the Statistics link under WebUI: Panorama > Managed Collectors.
Clicking on the Statistics display Average Logs/sec.
When the Panorama server is enabled to collect logs, the same statistics can be obtained from the CLI, using the command:
Panorama> debug log-collector log-collection-stats show incoming-logs Last time logs received Sun Feb 2 17:54:47 2020 Incoming log rate = 125.85 Detail counts by logtype: traffic:1780676451 config:1126 system:98615 threat:28105597
The difference in the log rate between the command Line and Web UI is because:
- The Web UI displays the rate at which the logs are written to the M-100 RAID disks and is measured at 5 minute average intervals.
- The command line displays the rate at which the Log Collector has received the logs at any moment in time.
