Overview

For troubleshooting purposes it may be necessary to collect the PCAPs of the PIM and IGMP traffic that the Palo Alto Networks firewall is processing. The quickest way to troubleshoot is through the CLI.

 

Details

To start the capture, use the one of the following CLI commands:

> debug routing pcap pim on

> debug routing pcap igmp on

 

To stop the capture:

> debug routing pcap pim off

> debug routing pcap igmp off

 

To view the data on the device without the need to export:

> debug routing pcap pim view

> debug routing pcap igmp view

 

To view the data on the device in verbose, readable format:

> view-pcap verbose yes debug-pcap pim-vr-0.pcap

> view-pcap verbose yes debug-pcap igmp-vr-0.pcap

 

If needed, files can be exported:

> scp export debug-pcap from "file name" to username@host:path

> tftp export debug-pcap from "file name" to "tftp host"

 

To delete old captures:

> debug routing pcap pim delete

> debug routing pcap igmp delete
