Globalprotect report generation on users

Is it possible to generate a report about the average logged in users in global protect

 

 

I can see who is currently logged in by going to Network>>gateway>remote user, but no reports on it. I also know the maximum number of users for that firewall PA3220 which is 1024 users

Seems like there will be many more people interested to graph GlobalProtect capacity due to COVID-9 and WFH

 

I checked past forum posts, seems like there is no simple option to do it onboard. Perhaps good old SNMP will be of help here. We are planning to try out panGPGWUtilizationActiveTunnels.0. Please share your progress in this post

Hi @RemusDV ,

 

There's an existing feature request for this.

Please reach out to your local SE and have him add your vote:

 

FR ID 2460 (GlobalProtect Reporting).

 

Until then you should be able to use the following workaround:

How to Run a Report for Previous Logged in GlobalProtect Users 

 

Cheers !

Just to confirm, we build report polling two parameters. Both are generating nice accurate graphs.

  • panGPGWUtilizationPct
  • panGPGWUtilizationActiveTunnels

Hi @RemusDV 

 

Aside from what's already been said ... the ACC might provide the data you're looking for:

This is actually a good solution. Even though it is available in 9.1(correct me if I'm wrong). I'll still advise the client. Thanks kiwi for the support
