Dedicated Logging Export Interface on PA 5220?

By default, I know that you can send all of your logging messages out the onboard management interface, on a platform like the 5220.  However, I would like to avoid the extra noise on my management network, by configuring separate, dedicated interfaces to handle and offload the logging operations, to remote systems.

 

Ideally, I would like to pair several interfaces together into a port channel (link aggregation) for this logging purpose.

 

My understanding is that you can do this on the PA-7000 platform.  But I am wondering how to do this on 5220. 

 

Specifically, how can this be done via the CLI?

 

Thanks.

You can configure the Custom "Service Route configuration" on the device for log forwarding to use the source interface as the Aggregated interface.

Re: Dedicated Logging Export Interface on PA 5220?

the PA-7000 can do this if you insert the Log-Forwarding Card and then you have a dedicated log forwarding blade

 

on the PA-5220 you can either reuse an existing dataplane connection (single interface or AG) or create a new interface (or aggregate) that connects to your log collector, and then set up Service Routes [Device > Setup > Services] to have syslogs etc egress out that interface(group)

 

there's 2 ways to accomplish this through CLI

 

setting the 'service' (in this example all management outbound 'syslog' is pushed to the new source interface)

>set deviceconfig system route service syslog source address 10.193.82.164/23
>set deviceconfig system route service syslog source interface ethernet1/3

setting a 'destination' (in this example all outbound connections for a specific management-plane destination are pushed out of a new source interface)

>set deviceconfig system route destination 10.15.15.15 source interface ethernet1/3
>set deviceconfig system route destination 10.15.15.15 source address 10.193.82.164/23
