Below are some commands (with brief description) which can be useful in troubleshooting Management or Traffic related issues. The issues can vary from persistent to intermittent or sporadic in nature. 

 

 

NOTE: This document is a general guideline and should not be taken as the final diagnosis of the issue.

 

 

show system info - This command will provide us a snapshot of the model, PAN OS, dynamic updates (app, threats, AV, WF, URL) versions, among other things. The 'uptime' mentioned here is referring to the dataplane uptime. This will reset if the dataplane or the whole device has been restarted.

show system resources <follow> - This command provides a real-time usages of Management CPU usage. The 'up' mentioned here refers to the uptime of the Management plane. This command can also be used to look up the memory usage and swap usage, if any. Ideally, the swap memory usage should not be too much or degrade, which would indicate memory leak or simply too much load. This command follows the same format as running 'top' command on Linux machines. If the commits are taking too long (longer than an established "baseline"), high management CPU can be one of the causes.

show session info - This command provides information on sessions parameters set along with counters for packet rate, new connections, etc. Session parameters include, but not limited to, total and current number of sessions, timeouts, setup. The first section of the output is dynamic, meaning it'd yield different output on every execution of this command.

 show system statistics session - This command shows real-time values for the count of Active sessions, throughput, packet rate and (dataplane) uptime (Dataplane uptime). This output window will refresh every few seconds to update the values shown.

debug dataplane pool statistics - This command's output has been significantly changed from older versions. It now shows the packet buffers, resource pools and memory cache usages by different processes. If the pools deplete, traffic performance will be affected corresponding to that particular resource pool. Regarding pools, the number of the left shows the remaining while the number on the right shows the total capacity. The total capacity can vary based on platforms, models and OS versions. Likewise, if a certain process uses too much memory, that can also cause issues related to that process.

show running resource-monitor - This is the most important command in getting dataplane CPU usages over different time intervals. Usually, if the CPU stays high (>90), traffic would feel sluggish, latency would also rise. The best strategy is to determine a regular 24-hour usage ("baseline") and then compare it to the times when spikes are experienced.

show counter global - This command lists all the counters available on the firewall for the given OS version. For every packet that arrives, traverses or even gets dropped, we should see one or more counters go up. These are extremely powerful in troubleshooting traffic related issues when combined with packet-filter.

admin@anuragFW> show counter global

Global counters:
Elapsed time since last sampling: 491.920 seconds

name value rate severity category aspect description
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
pkt_recv 57490275 67   info packet pktproc Packets received
pkt_sent 1402176 44 info packet pktproc Packets transmitted
pkt_sent_host 359410 0 info packet pktproc Packets successfully transmitted to host interface
pkt_stp_rcv 1085307 0 info packet pktproc STP BPDU packets received
session_allocated 375497 1 info session resource Sessions allocated
session_freed 375449 2 info session resource Sessions freed
session_installed 375019 1 info session resource Sessions installed
session_discard 85940 0 info session resource Session set to discard by security policy check
session_unverified_rst 1034 0 info session pktproc Session aging timer modified by unverified RST

...cut for brevity...

Different filters can be set to narrow the focus on the relevant counters.

admin@anuragFW> show counter global filter severity drop

Global counters:
Elapsed time since last sampling: 13.407 seconds

name value rate severity category aspect description
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
flow_rcv_dot1q_tag_err 46215426 13   drop flow parse Packets dropped: 802.1q tag not configured
flow_no_interface 46215426 13   drop flow parse Packets dropped: invalid interface
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 We can also use 'match' sub-command to look for results based on string matching to the argument of 'match'.

admin@anuragFW> show counter global | match deny
flow_policy_deny 23905 0 drop flow session Session setup: denied by policy
flow_rematch_parent 10 0 info flow pktproc number of rematch deny for parent sessions
flow_host_service_deny 1871180 2 drop flow mgmt Device management session denied
