I recently purchased a PA-3020 and just fired it up for the first time. The first thing I have noticed is how loud this device is. It is almost deafening and can be heard in the hallways behind a door in my server room. Is this typical behavior? I check the fan RPM speeds and all four are registering around 14k. I called support but they stated that this is the default behavior of the device. I find this very hard to believe. Can anyone else with a 3020 weigh in on this? Are the fans in your device running at the same RPM as mine? Is yours extremely loud?
Once you will power up the PAN firewall, first few minutes the fan will rotate at a high speed. But after that, it would come to a normal state.
Output from a PAN 3020 FW:
Slot Description Alarm RPMs Min RPM
S1 Fan #1 RPM False 14361 2500
S1 Fan #2 RPM False 14313 2500
S1 Fan #3 RPM False 14312 2500
S1 Fan #4 RPM False 13729 2500
