View and monitor traffic and link characteristics for an application
The Monitoring tab is a dashboard that displays summary widgets of all your SD-WAN firewall and Prisma Access health metrics. This tool provides actionable intelligence about the activity on your SD-WAN network by enabling you to quickly identify applications or links experiencing performance issues. You can view path quality and link performance for all VPN clusters—for a specific VPN cluster—within a specified period of time.
At a glance, you can view the total number of VPN clusters with branch or hub firewalls that are experiencing impacted application performance and those that are healthy. You can view the following application and link health states for VPN Clusters:
  • App Performance
    • Impacted
      —One or more applications in the VPN cluster for which none of the paths have jitter, latency, or packet loss performance that meet the specified thresholds in the Path Quality Profile in the list of paths from which the firewall can choose.
    • OK
      —Applications in the VPN cluster are healthy and experiencing no or below the specified thresholds for the jitter, latency, or packet loss performance in the Path Quality Profile.
  • Link Performance
    • Error
      —One or more sites in the VPN cluster have connectivity issues such as when a tunnel or a virtual interface (VIF) is down.
    • Warning
      —One or more sites in the VPN cluster have links with
      bandwidth (supported in PAN-OS 11.2.0 with SD-WAN plugin 3.3.0 and later releases),
      jitter, latency, or packet loss performance measurements that compare unfavorably to a moving seven day average value.
    • OK
      —Links in the VPN cluster are healthy and experiencing no or below the specified thresholds for the
      bandwidth (supported in PAN-OS 11.2.0 with SD-WAN plugin 3.3.0 and later releases),
      jitter, latency, or packet loss performance in the Path Quality Profile.
    Beginning with PAN-OS 11.2.0, SD-WAN plugin 3.3.0 and later releases support 'bandwidth' which is the primary measure of the link performance.
If a hub or branch firewall have an application configured with Forward Error Correction, an
Error Correction Initiated
message is displayed to notify you that the hub or branch firewall detected and corrected errors in transmitted data.
