Does statistics for appid ssl include other appid's using ssl such as gmail-base, facebook-base etc?

L6 Presenter

This is a fork of https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/General-Topics/Statistics-reports-on-how-much-SSL-traffic-you-g... but with a specific question.

 

Dealing with reports in PA I wonder if the counters/statistics regarding appid ssl includes other appid's who also use ssl such as gmail-base, facebook-base and the others?

 

That is lets say you got a report that says (in the below example both facebook and gmail uses https):

 

appid, port, bytes, sessions

 

ssl, 443, 10GB, 1M

ssl, 11111, 1GB, 0.1M

ssl, 22222, 2GB, 0.2M

facebook-base, 443, 2GB, 0.2M

gmail-base, 443, 5GB, 0.5M

 

Would the above mean that the total number of ssl-traffic during this timeframe was 13GB/1.3M sessions or 20GB/2M sessions?

I believe it's 20GB/2M (if you're not decrypting any traffic)

I'm pretty sure this report is drawn from traffic logs. In those logs each session is logged with one recognised application. So if a TCP session is recognised as gmail-base it will only count towards gmail statistics and not SSL. 

 

Not sure how it's logged and reported for decrypted sessions.
