Interface Throughput via API



i'm trying to use the firewall Rest API Browser to get interface information such as its throughput, but no matter how i try to do it im unable to send a correct request, it always gives me some kind of error.


Here's the URL of the request:




from what i understand the interface name i wanna get information should be between the the tags <interface></interface>, but when i put the interface ethernet1/1 there i keep geting this error:


<response status="error" code="17">


         <line> show -> qos -> interface has unexpected text.</line>

         <line> show -> qos -> interface is invalid</line>



Can someone give me a help?

Re: Interface Throughput via API

Sounds like a dumb question, but do you have QoS configured on interface eth1/1 or do you only want the normal throughput and not the QoS values?

And if you really want QoS values, try it with this operational request:

<show><qos><interface><entry name='ethernet1/3'><throughput>0</throughput></entry></interface></qos></show>

As far as I know this silently changed with PAN-OS 8
