Slow Traffic

Hi,
PA in vwire mode , zone client and zone servers

In zone servers there is a print server(windows) and the zone client users pc .

Users are trying heavy duty printing (50-100) pages .

How can I verify pa is bottleneck or making some issues

Re: Slow Traffic

firstly... have you checked the status of the print job on the print server.

it may give some indication..

 

i would imagine you are looking for some diagnostics on the PA. I would run wireshark on the print server or the printer port to see what the traffic is doing.

 

you could use the monitor/packet capture on the firewall and filter printer traffic.

 

somebody else may post with some clever CLI commands..

Re: Slow Traffic

Hi,

here is the summary of total connections  per day   from the printer to server  

bytes 15.91 G

sessions 29.39 k

Is it quite large in your experience ?

 

Thanks

Re: Slow Traffic

Sorry @simsim. I cant advise here because all of our clients, printers and servers are on the same Pan interface.
