Analyze Log Data

The
Monitor
tab on Panorama provides access to log data; these logs are an archived list of sessions that have been processed by the managed firewalls and forwarded to Panorama.
Log data can be broadly grouped into two types: those that detail information on traffic flows on your network such as applications, threats, host information profiles, URL categories, content/file types and those that record system events, configuration changes, and User-ID™ mapping information.
Based on the log forwarding configuration on the managed firewalls, the
Monitor
Logs
tab can include logs for traffic flows, threats, URL filtering, data filtering, host information profile (HIP) matches, and WildFire™ submissions. You can review the logs to verify a wealth of information on a given session or transaction. Some examples of this information are the user who initiated the session, the action (allow or deny) that the firewall performed on the session, and the source and destination ports, zones, and addresses. The System and Config logs can indicate a configuration change or an alarm that the firewall triggered when a configured threshold was exceeded.
If Panorama will manage firewalls running software versions earlier than PAN-OS 7.0, specify a WildFire server from which Panorama can gather analysis information for WildFire samples that those firewalls submit. Panorama uses the information to complete WildFire Submissions logs that are missing field values introduced in PAN-OS 7.0. Firewalls running earlier releases won’t populate those fields. To specify the server, select
Panorama
Setup
WildFire
, edit the General Settings, and enter the

name. The default is

, which is the WildFire cloud hosted in the United States.
