Remote Networks

The Remote Networks dashboard gives you a bird’s eye view (health, and connectivity of your Remote Networks and the usage) of all your Remote Networks deployed in different Prisma Access locations. It shows you the real-time connectivity status and bandwidth consumption details, along with other deployment details. Mobile Users, branch offices and retail locations connect to Remote Neworks. This dashboard has three tabs:

Monitoring Summary Tab

This tab shows a summary of the health of your Remote Networks, such as top open alerts, Prisma Access Location status, site and tunnels status, and bandwidth utilization. The
Monitoring Summary
tab has the following widgets:

Top 5 Open Alerts by Severity

View the top five most severe alerts that are still open. Additionally drill in to the
dashboard to view of all the alert. Here you can click on a specific alert to go to the alert details page which gives you more information on the alert. This widget is empty when your system is healthy and there are no alerts to display. Drill into an alert by clicking on it in order to understand more context around it.

Deployed Prisma Access Locations

This widget displays the location of all the Remote Network sites and their connectivity status. It shows the status, where they are deployed around the world. Also, when you hover over an icon you can see the number of offices connected and the number of Remote Networks nodes that are up or down.

Site and Tunnel Status

You can see the Remote Network sites and the tunnels associated with them in this widget. The number of sites are typically less than the number of tunnels because a site can have multiple tunnels associated with it. The widgets also shows you which sites or tunnels are up, down, warning, inactive or not available. The following status are supported:
Up - the tunnel is up
Down - the tunnel is down
Inactive - this status indicates one of the following:
  • The tunnel was removed from the configuration and hence you cannot get the tunnel status
  • No tunnel status was reported for 4 consecutive minutes
Not available - The tunnel is in the init state or did not get initiated after configuration.
Warning - The site is up but one or more tunnels associated with it is down

Top 5 Most Active Prisma Access Locations

This widget helps you monitor the Prisma Access locations that have the most bandwidth consumption for your Remote Networks. See the trends of their bandwidth consumptions in a graph. Hovering your cursor over the trend lines shows you details of your bandwidth consumption at a specific time or lets you view the peaks and lows to better estimate the bandwidth capacity for your environment. Clicking on the legend will isolate (reflect its status) on the trend line.

Top 5 Sites Approaching Max. Available Bandwidth

This bar graph widget shows the sites that are approaching their maximum allocated bandwidth and so will need your attention. You can see at a glance which site is about to reach the maximum bandwidth based on its bandwidth allocation so that you can plan for additional capacity if needed. As a follow-up action, you could direct these sites to other SPN nodes or provide additional bandwidth capacity for these sites. Hover your cursor over the trend graph to see the bandwidth consumption for the site in Mbps. The bandwidth is reflected in percentage.

Top 5 Sites Trends with Peak Bandwidth Utilization Over Time

This widget shows you the trends in the the bandwidth consumption by the top five sites. It shows you the total bandwidth utilized for the top five sites. When you hover over the trend graph, it shows you bandwidth in Mbps.

Map View Tab

The Map View gives you an overview of the connectivity status of all the Prisma Access Locations where remote networks are deployed. Clicking on a marker in the map will give you an overview of the health and consumption metrics in detail. Drill into each of the locations on the map to get a better understanding of the current health of your networks and connectivity over time.

Site List Tab

This tab lists all your Remote Network sites and their details. The
Site List
tab contains the following widgets:

Status Distribution

View the number of sites configured to your Remote Networks and their real-time status in this widget. The widget is color coded to display the severity of the status. Click a color on the circle to filter the Site list table below. For example, clicking on the yellow portion filters the list to display all sites that have a warning status along with the details associated with the status. Click again to remove the filter. By default, the table displays the status for all sites and locations. Click a site name to drill down specifically into that site.

Aggregate Bandwidth Consumption Over Time

View the trend of
Aggregate Bandwidth Consumption
across all the Remote Networks. You can switch between the average tunnel ingress/egress and peak tunnel ingress/egress to understand the consumption against the threshold and maximum allocated bandwidth.

Total Sites

This table below displays an overview of all the sites. Click on a
Site Name
to go to its details page. The table below shows data when aggregate bandwidth is deployed.
Click on a
Compute Location
in the site list below to open the
IPSec Termination Node Utilization Details
window, which displays the bandwidth consumption details of each Security Processing Node (SPN) in the site.
Click on a site name to see additional details on the site.
In a Remote Networks environment where aggregate bandwidth is not deployed, the
IPSec Termination Node
Compute Location
, and
Aggregate Bandwidth Allocated
columns do not display as they are not applicable in this scenario.
