What would cause the data plane that has been running aroun 25% start running at 35-40%? Is there away to track down the reason

Lots of things actually. Do you have more sessions going through the data plane for some reason, did someone install something that is chatting to another zone, are people streaming more media, software bug? I think the first thing to look at would be if your session count is higher than it normally is and go from there. 

so where is the best place to see if you session count has increased?

Automatic reports are good way to start. Traffic reports in particular.

I think I am going to have to create a custome report I don't see any of the premade report with what I need. They show total sessions but does not show how it increases over time

I am not finding a graph of any sort in the reports that show the increase of session unless I am missing something

If you have already been monitoring total bandwidth usage or application statistics you could get the same information in a more round-about way.

Can you give me an example?

If you have reports for application statistics along with sorting by the number of sessions then you can somewhat monitor the number of sessions on your network. I've included a screenshot of how I have mine setup. To the best of my knowledge you can't have a report for the number of sessions. We use the API to pull the output and save it to a text document so that we can somewhat manuanually monitor it if needed. app stat.PNG

So this is a custom report? Let me see if I can configure something similar thanks. I will let you know if it gives me what I need

Like what you see?
