If you configure log forwarding on a PA-7000 Series firewall, you must configure one data port as type
Log Card. This is because the traffic and logging capabilities of this firewall model exceed the capabilities of the management (MGT) interface. A log card data port performs log forwarding for syslog, email, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Panorama log forwarding, and WildFire™ file-forwarding.
You can configure only one port on the firewall as type
Log Card. If you enable log forwarding but do not configure an interface with the
Log Cardtype, you get an error when you attempt to commit your changes.
To configure a log card interface, select an Interface that is not configured (ethernet1/16, for example) and configure the settings described in the following table.
Log Card Interface Settings
Select the slot number (1-12) of the interface.
The interface name is predefined and you cannot change it.
Enter an optional description for the interface.
Log Card Forwarding
If your network uses IPv4, define the following:
If your network uses IPv6, define the following:
Select the interface speed in Mbps (
1000) or select
auto(default) to have the firewall automatically determine the speed based on the connection. For interfaces that have a non-configurable speed,
autois the only option.
The minimum recommended speed for the connection is
Select whether the interface transmission mode is full-duplex (
full), half-duplex (
half), or negotiated automatically based on the connection (
auto). The default is
Select whether the interface status is enabled (
up), disabled (
down), or determined automatically based on the connection (
auto). The default is
