DoS threshold per zone

Hi All,

 

What additional tool can l use to get CPS/SPS intonation hitting specific zone?

I found this KB with three wonderful MIBs:

Is there a way to get the same statistics for ICMP traffic? Are there any useful API calls to get similar or better statistics?

 

Thanks,

Myky

Hello there!

 

PANW recommends importing their SNMP mibs into your mgr app, and query for the information you see.

Everyone's network is different, so there is no single numbers that work.

 

I am including a link to 

https://docs.paloaltonetworks.com/best-practices/9-0/dos-and-zone-protection-best-practices.html

 

And on this page are other resources for you to use.

 

Hope this helps.

Thanks, @SteveCantwell. We are currently running 7.1.x release, so in order to use updated MIB that has per-zone CCP/SPS OID we need to move at least to the 8.1.x firmware release.

Agreed... 7.1 is close (if not already) considered to be an unsupported version of code.

When you upgrade, I would recommend that you get yourself into the 9.x version (as compared to 8.1), so that you will have some longevity to your solution.  

 

Thank you.
