We have a 3020 running 7.0.8 and are experimenting with MineMeld.
As soon as we get close to 5k IPs on the combined EBLs we get an error on a EBL refresh that it's been truncated as it's over the limit.
Palo Alto's own KB suggests that on an entry level PA-200 there is a limit of 50k items on all EBLs combined.
Support are telling me that the limit on 3020 is 5k which doesn't seem to make sense as a) why would a 200 support more than a 3020 and b) what's the point of something like minmeld if you can only have 5000 IPs?
Any clarification would be great.
For 7.0.x and earlier read this article. Specifically the 3rd entry down.
For 7.1 see this link.
Either way PanOS sets aside 300 entries so the number will always be 300 lower than the maximum. The limit on your 3020 running 7.0.8 will be 4700.
In addition to Greg answer about enanchements in 7.1, note that:
- you can limit the number of entries of MineMeld output feeds retrieved by PAN-OS using the 'n' URL parameter. Example: https://<minemeld>/feeds/inboundhcfeed?n=1000 will retrieve only the top 1000 entries of the feed
- output feeds by default in MineMeld are sorted by recency. This means that when you retrieve the 1000 topmost entries, the 1000 most recent entries are retrieved
I have a Pa-500 version 6.1.0
show system state | match cfg.general.max-address
cfg.general.max-address: 0x9c4 --> 2500 IP
cfg.general.max-address-group: 0xfa --> 250
cfg.general.max-address-per-group: 0x1f4 --> 500
I am confused with the limits of the lists. I can not predict how big the feed can become. If it's bigger than the limits, does the Palo Alto read the list as much as I can or can not read it?
With these values, how many lists can I have?
How many values can this list have?
In global, how many ip can I have?
Your PA-500 with PAN-OS 6.1 can have:
- up to 10 Dynamic Block Lists
- each DBL can contain up to (max-addresses-300) entries = 2200 IPs
Note: this has changed in PAN-OS 7.1, check @Greg_R previous post.
In MineMeld you can use the "n" and "s" feed parameter to slice a feed. Example:
https://<minemeld ip>/feeds/inboundhc => full list of indicators
https://<minemeld ip>/feeds/inboundhc?n=2200 => first 2200 entries in the list
https://<minemeld ip>/feeds/inboundhc?s=2200&n=2200 => entries 2201-4400 in the list
Note: feeds by default are sorted based on the update time, this means that when you retrieve the first N entries these will be the N most recent entries.
