NAT Destination Port (natdport)
Post-NAT destination port.
32-bit field that provides details on session; this field can be decoded by AND-ing the values with the logged value:
IP Protocol (proto)
IP protocol associated with the session.
Action taken for the session; possible values are:
Severity associated with the event; values are informational, low, medium, high, critical.
Sequence Number (seqno)
A 64-bit log entry identifier incremented sequentially; each log type has a unique number space. This field is not supported on PA-7000 Series firewalls.
Action Flags (actionflags)
A bit field indicating if the log was forwarded to Panorama.
Source Location (srcloc)
Source country or Internal region for private addresses; maximum length is 32 bytes.
Destination Location (dstloc)
Destination country or Internal region for private addresses. Maximum length is 32 bytes.
Device Group Hierarchy (dg_hier_level_1 to dg_hier_level_4)
A sequence of identification numbers that indicate the device group’s location within a device group hierarchy. The firewall (or virtual system) generating the log includes the identification number of each ancestor in its device group hierarchy. The shared device group (level 0) is not included in this structure.
If the log values are 12, 34, 45, 0, it means that the log was generated by a firewall (or virtual system) that belongs to device group 45, and its ancestors are 34, and 12. To view the device group names that correspond to the value 12, 34 or 45, use one of the following methods:
Virtual System Name (vsys_name)
The name of the virtual system associated with the session; only valid on firewalls enabled for multiple virtual systems.
Device Name (device_name)
The hostname of the firewall on which the session was logged.
Tunnel ID (tunnelid)
ID of the tunnel being inspected or the International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) ID of the mobile user.
Monitor Tag (monitortag)
Monitor name you configured for the Tunnel Inspection policy rule or the International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI) ID of the mobile device.
Parent Session ID (parent_session_id)
ID of the session in which this session is tunneled. Applies to inner tunnel (if two levels of tunneling) or inside content (if one level of tunneling) only.
Parent Start Time (parent_start_time)
Year/month/day hours:minutes:seconds that the parent tunnel session began.
Tunnel Type (tunnel)
Type of tunnel, such as GRE or IPSec.
Number of bytes in the session.
Bytes Sent (bytes_sent)
Number of bytes in the client-to-server direction of the session.
Bytes Received (bytes_received)
Number of bytes in the server-to-client direction of the session.
Number of total packets (transmit and receive) for the session.
Packets Sent (pkts_sent)
Number of client-to-server packets for the session.
Packets Received (pkts_received)
Number of server-to-client packets for the session.
Maximum Encapsulation (max_encap)
Number of packets the firewall dropped because the packet exceeded the maximum number of encapsulation levels configured in the Tunnel Inspection policy rule (Drop packet if over maximum tunnel inspection level).
Unknown Protocol (unknown_proto)
Number of packets the firewall dropped because the packet contains an unknown protocol, as enabled in the Tunnel Inspection policy rule (Drop packet if unknown protocol inside tunnel).
Strict Checking (strict_check)
Number of packets the firewall dropped because the tunnel protocol header in the packet failed to comply with the RFC for the tunnel protocol, as enabled in the Tunnel Inspection policy rule (
Drop packet if tunnel protocol fails strict header check).
Tunnel Fragment (tunnel_fragment)
Number of packets the firewall dropped because of fragmentation errors.
Sessions Created (sessions_created)
Number of inner sessions created.
Sessions Closed (sessions_closed)
Number of completed/closed sessions created.
Session End Reason (session_end_reason)
The reason a session terminated. If the termination had multiple causes, this field displays only the highest priority reason. The possible session end reason values are as follows, in order of priority (where the first is highest):
Action Source (action_source)
Specifies whether the action taken to allow or block an application was defined in the application or in policy. The actions can be allow, deny, drop, reset- server, reset-client or reset-both for the session.
Start Time (start)
Year/month/day hours:minutes:seconds that the session began.
Elapsed Time (elapsed)
Elapsed time of the session.
Tunnel Inspection Rule (tunnel_insp_rule)
Name of the tunnel inspection rule matching the cleartext tunnel traffic.
Remote User IP (remote_user_ip)
IPv4 or IPv6 address of a remote user.
Remote User ID (remote_user_id)
IMSI identity of a remote user, and if available, one IMEI identity or one MSISDN identity.
Security Rule UUID (rule_uuid)
The UUID that permanently identifies the rule.
PCAP ID (pcap_id)
Unique packet capture ID that defines the location of the pcap file on the firewall.
Dynamic User Group Name (dynusergroup_name)
The name of the dynamic user group that contains the user who initiated the session.
Source External Dynamic List (src_edl)
The name of the external dynamic list that contains the source IP address of the traffic.
Destination External Dynamic List (dst_edl)
The name of the external dynamic list that contains the destination IP address of the traffic.
High Resolution Timestamp (high_res timestamp)
Time in milliseconds the log was received at the management plane.
The format for this new field is YYYY-MM-DDThh:ss:sssTZD:
The High Resolution Timestamp is supported for logs received from managed firewalls running PAN-OS 10.0 and later releases. Logs received from managed firewalls running PAN-OS 9.1 and earlier releases display a
1969-12-31T16:00:00:000-8:00timestamp regardless of when the log was received.
