Configure Key Limits for Scheduled Reports

Configure the maximum and minimum key limits for scheduled reports on the Panorama™ management server.
The Panorama™ management server and the PA-7000 Series firewall reports utilize keys (unique values on which you can aggregate) from one or more Log Collector to build and generate reports. To improve the accuracy of scheduled reports, you can now configurable the maximum and minimum key limits. By increasing the number of keys supported, scheduled reports can now include more data that can be aggregated, sorted, and grouped.
The default minimum key limit is based on the
Sort By
and
Group By
values configured for the scheduled report using the following calculation:
<Sort By value> x 100 x <Group By value>
For example, if
Sort By
is configured as
Top 25
and
Group By
is configured as
5 Groups
, the default minimum key limit is 12,500 keys. The
Group By
value is not factored into the calculation when set to
None
. The default minimum key limit is limited to and cannot exceed the maximum key limit.
You can only configure the key limits for the M-Series appliances and Panorama virtual appliances. The PA-7000 series key limits are not configurable.
The supported maximum and minimum keys are increased for the following Panorama models:
Panorama Model
Minimum Key Limit
Maximum Key Limit
PA-7000 Series
1,000 - Default, not configurable
25,000 - Default, not configurable
M-200
15,000
50,000
M-500
15,000
50,000
M-600
15,000
50,000
Panorama Virtual Appliance in Legacy mode
5,000
25,000
Panorama Virtual Appliance (all supported models)
15,000
50,000
  1. Configure the maximum key limit using the following command:
    You can set the maximum key limit between 0 and 50, where 50 equals 50,000 keys. In this example, we are setting the maximum key limit for the Panorama virtual appliance to 30,000 keys.
    admin@Panorama>
    request max-report-keys set limit
    <Key Limit>
    config-max-key-limit.png
  2. Configure the minimum key limit using the following command:
    You can set the minimum key limit between 0 and 15, where 15 equals 15,000 keys. In this example, we are setting the minimum key limit for the Panorama virtual appliance to 15,000 keys.
    admin@Panorama>
    request min-report-keys set limit
    <Key Limit>
    config-min-key-limit.png
  3. (
    Optional
    ) Set the minimum key limit to the default setting.
    admin@Panorama>
    request min-report-keys set limit 0
  4. Commit the new maximum and minimum key limits to Panorama using the following command:
    admin@Panorama>
    commit-all
