Dear Palo Alto Networks:

Your firewalls are generally okay.

But, the fact that you cannot get an interface bandwidth graph without configuring some QoS hack to only show an ingress interface traffic graph is stupid.

Every firewall vendor in the world has this feature. Except you.

Please fix this idiocy.

Re: Dear Palo Alto Networks:

While I do agree with you, my guess is they rely on their customers using something else for this (PRTG, LibreNMS, Obersvium, other). You can also use the Pan(w)achrome extension in your browser which will use the API to generate the data/charts/graphs.

@MP18,

Assuming that you are talking about pan(w)achrome, you can close the GUI and still receive updated stats in the extension without issue.

Re: Dear Palo Alto Networks:

Hi BPry,

 

Yes i was talking about pan(w).

Seems when i close the web gui i can still access the stats.

 

curious to know how does this work in background to pull the stats from PA?

Is there any way we can see the logs in PA that shows us chrome extension pan(w) is pulling stats from the PA?

 

Regards
