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.
The reports are grouped into sections (types) on the right-hand
side of the page:
