How to Determine Log Rate on VM Panorama or M-100 with a Log-Collector

Printer Friendly Page


This document describes how to determine the logging rate on Panorama with a Log Collector.

Note: For Panorama 7.0, the Panorama Administrator's Guide describes how to Determine Panorama Log Storage Requirements.


When a Panorama Virtual Machine or M-100 is configured in Panorama Mode with a Log- Collector and is managing firewalls, the logging rate can be obtained using the Statistics link under Panorama > Managed Collectors.


Check to see the Average Logs/sec under Statistics.

When the Panorama server is enabled to collect logs, the same statistics can be obtained from the CLI, using the command:


Note: There is a small difference in the log rate between the CLI and web UI because the Web UI displays the rate at which the logs are written to the M-100 RAID disks and is measured at 5 minute average intervals.

While the command line displays the rate at which the Log Collector has received the logs at any moment in time.

The article above is ONLY true if you are using log collectors (which is not mentioned in the article).

Edit: Just tested, there is a difference between Panorama VM (no default log collector) and the M-100 (the M-100 is also registered as a log collector)
