PanGPS vs PanGPA logs on globalprotect

What is the main difference in between these log files? - I had read that one was more for the agent/gui - and one is the actual service?   I do know that most of the helpful logs tend to show up in the PanGPS logs file - or so it appears.   Does anyone have good feedback on this?  - As far as troubleshooting the actual agent - which is better and what the main difference is?

Re: PanGPS vs PanGPA logs on globalprotect

This was asked a while ago but i cannot get the docs...

PanGPA is described as the GlobalProtect UI program

PanGPS as the GlobalProtect service/daemon program

 

GPA seems to just note whats going on but the GPS details exactly what it has or is doing to achieve this.

 

I only ever use PanGPS.  although i often cross ref with the local PA system logs as these logs display user configs, actual seen name (for username modifier), source IP, source region etc.

Thank you Mick.  I noticed that those docs had an EOL on them.  So really what you are saying is the PanGPS logs is where to look?
