View Reports

The firewall provides an assortment of over 40 predefined reports that it generates every day. You can view these reports directly on the firewall. You can also view custom reports and summary reports.
About 200 MB of storage is allocated for saving reports on the firewall. This limit can be reconfigured for PA-7000 series and PA-5200 series firewalls only. For all other firewall models, you can Configure the Expiration Period and Run Time for Reports to allow the firewall to delete reports that exceed the period. Keep in mind that when the firewall reaches its storage limit, it automatically deletes older reports to create space even if you don’t set an expiration period. Another way to conserve system resources on the firewall is to Disable Predefined Reports. For long-term retention of reports, you can export the reports (as described below) or Schedule Reports for Email Delivery.
Unlike other reports, you can’t save User/Group Activity reports on the firewall. You must Generate User/Group Activity Reports on demand or schedule them for email delivery.
  1. Select MonitorReports.
    The reports are grouped into sections (types) on the right-hand side of the page: Custom Reports, Application Reports, Traffic Reports, Threat Reports, URL Filtering Reports, and PDF Summary Reports.
  2. Select a report to view. The reports page then displays the report for the previous day.
    To view reports for other days, select a date in the calendar at the bottom right of the page and select a report. If you select a report in another section, the date selection resets to the current date.
  3. To view a report offline, you can export the report to PDF, CSV or to XML formats. Click Export to PDF, Export to CSV, or Export to XML at the bottom of the page, then print or save the file.
