Use External Services for Monitoring

Using an external service to monitor the firewall enables you to receive alerts for important events, archive monitored information on systems with dedicated long-term storage, and integrate with third-party security monitoring tools. The following are some common scenarios for using external services:
You can Configure Log Forwarding from the firewalls directly to external services or from the firewalls to Panorama and then configure Panorama to forward logs to the servers. Refer to Log Forwarding Options for the factors to consider when deciding where to forward logs.
You can’t aggregate NetFlow records on Panorama; you must send them directly from the firewalls to a NetFlow collector.
