Custom traffic-to-destination report

I am having some trouble creating a custom report that to me seems like it should be a simple and typical report. I have a block of 10 destination addresses added into an address group and I need a montly report generated that just shows the total amount of traffic heading out to that address group. I have recently taken over the administration for our PA firewall and am very much a novice so any direction would be appreciated.

You can start from simple one like this one.

Re: Custom traffic-to-destination report

If you separate out traffic to those 10 destinations into its own firewall rule, then you could base your filter on the rule name.             (rule eq 'traffic to 10 destinations') 


This also has the added benefit of keeping up-to-date if you change the individual addresses within that address object group.  


@Raido's suggestion works great too.  Same data, just a different way of getting to it.  


Here's a link to the PAN-OS 8.0 reporting chapter:
