Re: PANOS 6

This is not mentioned in the release notes.

PANORAMA 5.1 introduced 64-bit mode VMWARE machine. I believe - based on these forums - that it also improved the way that the log indexing worked, in that it replaced the genindex.sh route that is called every 15 minutes with a python script. At the moment 4.1 and 5.0 management plane slow down every time genindex.sh runs,

Assuming my understanding is correct :-), and its real, has this improvement been rolled into 6.0 for Devices and Panorama?

I know logging performance is not very exciting but it becomes important when it impacts performance on a busy device.

Thanks

Re: PANOS 6

You guys can go ahead and find the bugs... I'll be waiting about a year until PANOS 6.0.10 is out before we will move anything critical to 6.0

Or maybe we'll wait for 6.1.10... hmm. Decisions decisions.

Hithead I believe you found a bug in the WebUI already didn't you? Self fulfilling prophecy there, no? :-)

Re: PANOS 6

It was clear for me, there are bugs. But I'm really interested to get a stable version of PANOS AND GP...

So i'm using my LAB device firstly, before I will enroll version 6.0.10 :smileygrin::smileygrin: on all devices...

Re: PANOS 6

I have to admit I have installed 6.0 on a couple of lab devices myself, so I can't say I'm not helping finding the bugs.

Hithead - why in the world are you using IE though? Is this some draconian thing at your work? Chrome or Firefox for PA all the way man... :smileyhappy:

Re: PANOS 6

IE is our default browser at work... With FF it works.... And the same issue we had with the release of PANOS 5... nothing learned..?!

I hope you're correct on this one - the biggest complaint I have about 5.x is this slowdown when the genindex.sh process runs (every 5 minutes, not every 15) on the firewall.

I have graphs of the management CPU usage which show it going up and down, up and done, ad-infinitum every 5 minutes.

I'm not rushing out to install 6.0 (too much experience with the QA - or lack of it - on PA's .0 releases), but if 6.0.1 comes out I'll jump into it.

I see I'm not the only one with a healthy scepticism about PA's .0 releases, Eric. :-)

darren.g yep, this whole thread is basically "preaching to the choir" for me
