Limits on a pan::xapi connection?

L1 Bithead

I'm working on a script to check several configuration options on a PANOS box.  It seems that after 10 actions or so, the api connection fails.  Is there a limit within the API that says a single instantiated api connection can only complete x amount of actions before a new connection must be established?  My code is fairly simple, I call the api and pass it to subs that complete various operations.

I have posted this query on your behalf :

Could you share with us some part of your code ?

As I understand, your script open a SSL connection to the FW and after that you send multiple request on this SSL connection ?

Have you tried to make call URL one by one ?

That is unexpected behaviour.  The http/https connections are handled by LWP::UserAgent.

Attached is a test program that works in my environment.  Try that and report results with error/warning output.
