Re: IPSec-ESP No matching record

Hulk is correct where the ACC will show you active sessions information and the traffic log will only show traffic information based on security rule log at start or end(default)?

So you would not see logs in traffic till session ends(tunnel goes down).

Following document explains better what you are seeing.

ACC Data is not in Sync with Traffic Logs


To determine what source/destination is causing traffic would need to look at ACC with source/destination zone for VPN at times you are seeing spike in traffic.

Hello Clint,

If you see the session type, it is "TUNN". So, this is not the FLOW session, which actually passes traffic.

Thanks

Re: IPSec-ESP No matching record

Session type "TUNN" indicates an IPSec tunnel session. As soon as you will configure a VPN tunnel, the PAN firewall will assume a tunnel session for that address.

Re: IPSec-ESP No matching record

Thanks guys.  This clarifies a lot.

One more question.  When you say the tunnel going down to see the traffic do you mean completely down or does the Palo count the rekey as the tunnel going down even though it is just a moment or two?

While it will be completely down. Rekey is a part of the IPSec algorithm, hence it would not be considered for session end ( according to my understanding:smileyhappy:  ).

Hello Clint,

Rekey takes hardly couple of second, which will not turn down IPsec Session. Hence its not considered to be tunnel down.

Tunnel down means firewall has Network or Transport layer issues to reach peer or no interesting traffic for long time.
