Monitor managed firewall health through Panorama™ to
baseline performance and identify hardware issues before they impact
your network security.
Monitor the health information of your managed
firewalls to identify and resolve hardware issues before they impact
your network security. Both Panorama™ and the managed firewalls
must be running PAN-OS® 8.1 or later releases but firewalls do not
need to be part of a device group or template stack to monitor their
summary session, logging, resource, and environmental performance.
Panorama stores the last 90 days of health monitoring statistics
of your managed firewalls so when you select a firewall, you can
view the time-trended graphs and tables for sessions, environmentals,
interfaces, logging, resources, and high availability performance. Panorama
calculates the baseline performance of each metric using seven-day averages
and standard deviation to determine a normal operating range for
the specific firewall. In addition to tracking the baseline and
comparing time-trended performance, you can view which firewalls
have deviating metrics and isolate performance-related issues before
they impact your network. When Panorama identifies that a metric
is outside the normal operating range, it marks the metric and populates
the Deviating Devices tab with the deviating firewall.
health monitoring data is stored on Panorama, and is preserved in
the event a firewall is removed. When a firewall is removed from
Panorama management, the health monitoring data no longer display
but are preserved for 90 days. After 90 days, all health monitoring
data of the removed firewall are removed from Panorama. If a firewall
is added back to Panorama management, the latest health monitoring
data from when the firewall was removed is displayed.
