Difference between making a report with "Run Now" and making it with the "Scheduled" option.

Hello,

 

I have created a custom report with the following settings in Panorama:

 

set shared reports "Threat Summary-Diario" type panorama-thsum sortby count
set shared reports "Threat Summary-Diario" type panorama-thsum group-by srcloc
set shared reports "Threat Summary-Diario" type panorama-thsum aggregate-by [ category-of-threatid threatid subtype src direction severity action app ]
set shared reports "Threat Summary-Diario" type panorama-thsum values count
set shared reports "Threat Summary-Diario" topn 500
set shared reports "Threat Summary-Diario" topm 50
set shared reports "Threat Summary-Diario" caption "Threat Summary-Diario"
set shared reports "Threat Summary-Diario" period last-calendar-day
set shared reports "Threat Summary-Diario" frequency daily


If you run the report with the "Run Now" option you get 750 lines.
If the same report is executed automatically when you have activated the "Schedule" option, only 30 lines are output.

 

Why this difference?

@sbprietoc It is because you are using the "threat summary" for base of the reports. Panorama tries to aggregate the data at 15 min intervals and  you get unpredicatble results. If you use the actual "Threat" database then the "run now" should be identical to the scheduled. 

 

"The firewall aggregates the detailed logs at 15-minute intervals. To enable faster response time when generating reports, the firewall condenses the data"

Hello @BatD 

 

Unfortunately, the result is a little better, but it's still different.
