7050's filtering/searching logs much slower than other models, is this normal?

L1 Bithead

I have worked on all Palo Alto models and it seems to me the log search takes much more time on 7050's than on other models. Currently we do not expiration timeframes set for logging, only for the extpcaps file. Sometimes the log screen will refresh multiple times when using filters in my log search.

smaller chassis store their logs on their 'main' system harddisk. the advantage is this allows for fast log access but limits the amount of log that can be stored


the PA-7000 platforms have a dedicated logging card that acts much like a panorama log collector: it allows far greater log capacity and incorporates redundancy to safeguard logs against loss, but is a bit slower to the user because in the backend, the management plane needs to transmit user requests to the log card, have it start a query and return that information to the management plane
