Get Started with the Cortex Data Lake
Get up and running with the Palo Alto Networks Logging service quickly and easily.
Welcome to the Palo Alto Networks Cortex Data Lake! The Cortex Data Lake provides cloud-based, centralized log storage and aggregation for cloud-delivered services such as the Traps management service and for your on premise, virtual (private cloud and public cloud) firewalls and for the GlobalProtect cloud service.
For the firewalls, Panorama provides the interface for the logs stored in the Cortex Data Lake. From Panorama, you can see an aggregated view of all logs stored in the Cortex Data Lake, and you can view reports and perform log analysis and forensics on the log data.
For the Traps management service, you need to use the Cloud Services Portal to view your logs. Refer to the Traps Management Service Administrator’s guide for more information.
