The maximum and default WildFire file forwarding
sizes and rates are increased in PAN-OS® 9.0 to provide optimal
visibility and detection. Based on Palo Alto Network’s data analytics,
the new default capacities protect against the majority of threats,
and is a best practice to use the new default values.
forwarding capacities for Traps, Aperture, and Magnifier have not changed.
For additional information about the file forwarding capacity of
these products and other public/API integrations, refer to the product documentation.
As a WildFire best practice,
Palo Alto Networks recommends using the default file forwarding
sizes. These values are designed to include the vast majority of
malware that are likely to be encountered in real-world scenarios.
Very large files that are beyond the size limits are excluded.
