PAN Next Generation Firewall 3020 can't Forward Logs Properly to External Syslog Server

Hi,

 

I'm trying to forward all logs from PAN Firewall 3020 to an external Syslog server. I have followed the guide here and have tried to debug the problem by accessing the firewall through CLI but to no avail. However, I think I might have noticed an error from debugging.

 

By running this line of code, I get the following results:

I noticed that the send rate is 0 but the enqueue and send count is quite high, but I can't seem to find any logs that state the reason why it is not being sent to my external syslog server. Could anyone help me with this issue please? Thank you!

Hi,

 

I have found out the problem. It was that the service route was not configured properly and so the logs we not sent via the correct IP/Port. Thank you for your help!
