Dataplane CPU Utilization (%)
Monitors dataplane CPU usage and measures the traffic load on the firewall.
Dataplane Packet Buffer Utilization (%)
Monitors dataplane buffer usage and measures buffer utilization. If you have a sudden burst in traffic, monitoring your buffer utilization allows you to ensure that the firewall does not deplete the dataplane buffer, which results in dropped packets.
GlobalProtect™ Gateway Active Tunnels
Monitors the number of active GlobalProtect sessions on a firewall deployed as a GlobalProtect gateway. Use this metric if you use this VM-Series firewall as a VPN gateway to secure remote users. Check the datasheet for the maximum number of active tunnels supported for your firewall model.
GlobalProtect Gateway Tunnel Utilization (%)
Monitors the active GlobalProtect tunnels on a gateway and measures tunnel utilization. Use this metric if you use this VM-Series firewall as a VPN gateway to secure remote users.
Monitors the new connection establish rate per second.
Monitors the throughput in Kbps.
Monitors the number of packets per second.
Monitors the total number of sessions that are active on the firewall. An active session is a session that is in the flow lookup table for which packets will be inspected and forwarded, as required by policy.
Session Utilization (%)
Monitors the TCP, UDP, ICMP and SSL sessions that are currently active and the packet rate, new connection establish rate, and firewall throughput to determine session utilization.
Monitors the percentage of SSL forward proxy sessions with clients for SSL/TLS decryption.
