I'm not actually sure that this gives you the light levels, but the most detailed command that I've been able to find for individual interfaces is 'show system state filter-pretty' where X is the slot number and Y is the port number.  

Thanks for the reply. I have asked for someone to test the command you provided, but not sure how long it will take them. Will post when I know.

Still waiting on test of command

I was told by PA support that they do not have the feature and no plans to get it. So that means a physical dispatch is required to simply check light levels. Not good.


I would check with your SE if there is an active feature request to add this feature into PAN-OS. If there is post it here so that others can add their votes to it 😉 

Hi All,


We are also having the same situation, however I have raised a ticket with PA support desk. Will update you if I get some positive feedback.

It is good to have that feature as we will be using HSCI port on PA5220.

Hope PA will add this feature soon


How is this not added yet??
