Before you get started with the Traps
management service, plan your deployment:
Use the Cortex Data Lake Calculator to
determine the amount of log storage you need for your Traps management
service deployment. By default, Traps management service includes
100GB of log storage when you activate Traps management service.
If you require additional log storage, you must purchase an additional
Cortex Data Lake license.
Determine whether you will forward both firewall logs and
Traps management service logs to the same Cortex Data Lake instance.
If you plan to forward both, you must first activate the Logging
Service from the
Customer Support Portal
instead of activating
the Cortex Data Lake from the Hub and then associate it with Traps
management service during activation. This sequence allows you to
associate the Auth code with Panorama and later associate the same Cortex
Data Lake instance with Traps management service.
Determine the region in which you want to host the Traps
management service and any associated services (Cortex Data Lake
and Directory Sync Service).
Calculate the bandwidth required to support the number of
agents you plan to deploy. For every 100,000 agents, you will need
to allocate 120Mbps of bandwidth. The bandwidth requirement scales
linearly. For example, to support 300,000 agents, plan to allocate
360Mbps of bandwidth (three times the amount required for 100,000
