forwarded logs not deleting after processing

L2 Linker

I have Panorama configured as a device in Expedition. Devices managed by Panorama have been imported/retrieved into the device within Expedition. Some stuff I've done/is configured:

  • crontab is set to fix permissions on imported logs daily at midnight. It runs successfully and resulting files look like they have the right permissions:
    -rw-rw---- 1 expedition www-data 184G Sep 17 17:56 PA5220_traffic.....
  • My daily scheduled log processing is set for 4AM
  • The M.Learning component in the device (Panorama) is set to "auto process CSV log files" and appears to do this. I've been able to analyze rules in a project using this info.
  • I have "after process: Delete" configured, but it doesn't appear to work

I've also got another thread out there regarding the "process Enabled Files" option that is greyed out in this context. The only way I can process these logs is by letting the daily processing schedule catch up to them, or manually changing that schedule to be 2 min from now, for instance.


In any case, the server quickly fills up with space as logs aren't being deleted after processing. My thinking is that logs are uploaded at 1600, ACL changed at 0000, then auto processing kicking off at 0400. So far it seems to all work except the deleting part. Any tips?


I only have Panorama set in devices, but the managed firewalls have been retrieved within it. Goal is to take rules from panorama device groups and use ML on traffic.


There is no place to set "after processing" action for the firewall themselves in expedition when panorama is the device in question. Am I missing something there and this isn't supported in the first place?

Even you received the traffic log form Panorama, The ML setting you to need to check is on the FW device not on Panorama, you will make sure the ML setting is set to delete the file after processing.
