PA2020 Web monitoring

Quick question that may have an even quicker answer. Is there any functionality to monitor users web browsing history through a Palo Alto 2020 box?

And if the answer is yes then is there any functionality to perform traffic shaping? And I don't just mean block/allow, but I mean throlling if say for instance it is a youtube video or hotmail, then it would give that data a lower priority for instance?

You can in the ACC filter based on userid.

Userid can be obtained by several methods depending on how your environment is setup:

- TS-agent (citrix and such)

- PAN-agent (AD, Novell eDirectory and such)

- Captive portal (if no automated method is available)

Check out the Knowledge Base (click on Home in the upper left in this forum and then the Knowledge Base link to the left) for more info on userid.

Regarding QoS you can setup QoS profiles based on source user and/or appid.

For example if you want to throttle a specific user or a specific user using youtube (or for that matter youtube no matter which user it is):
