7000 series log forwarding card not forwarding traffic logs to collector

L3 Networker

Hey everybody,
I'm setting up a 7050 with a log forwarding card to a dedicated log collector.  On the log collector, I have it set to device log collection and collector group communication on ethernet1/5.  I have log settings configured as well as a log forwarding profile.  With traffic running through the firewall, I'm seeing hits against rules on the 7050, but when I run "show logging-status device <SERIAL>" I see the destination IP of ethernet1/5, and I'm seeing logs received for system and config, but I'm not getting any traffic logs.  In the panorama manager, I can see the system and config logs, but I'm not seeing any traffic logs.  Any ideas what could be the issue?

Thanks for the suggestion.  In PAN-OS 9.0 I don't have an option to turn on high speed log forwarding.  I did enable send to all collectors in the preference list, but that didn't seem to change anything. 



It turned out to be an issue with the optics being used in the log forwarding port.  Once we used a supported optic, everything worked as expected.

The Log Forwarding Card (LFC) is a high-performance log card that forwards all dataplane logs (traffic and threat for example) from the firewall to one or more external logging systems, such as Panorama or a syslog server. Because the dataplane logs are no longer available on the local firewall, the ACCtab is removed from the management web interface and Monitor > Logscontain only management logs (Configuration, System, and Alarms).


There is one LFC model used for both the PA-7050 and PA-7080 firewalls. On the PA-7050 firewall, you must install the LFC in slot 8 and on the PA-7080 firewall you must install the LFC in slot 7.
