"source user" empty in monitor log

I'm looking at an old version 7 PA3000 which uses a user-id agent to map users (active directory) to IP addresses.

When i log onto the firewall CLI  a "show user ip-user-mapping-mp all" command returns what looks to be a valid list of user mappings.  However 90% of the traffic log entries have 'source user' blank.  There doesnt seem to be a reason why the remaining 10% are displaying correctly. Some clients from a given subnet passing through a rule are identified and others arent.  Any troubleshooting suggestions would be appreciated.

@JimMcGrady , Hi.

what is the identification timeout set to... you may need to increase it if not much domain activity is going on....
