Hide protocols from display in ACC?

L1 Bithead

Does anyone know of a way to hide protocols that would normally display in the ACC? Let's say there is an organization that generates a lot of ICMP traffic. This is all known good so they would like the capability to hide it from displaying in the ACC and Dashboard.

you can hide traffic from ACC by creating an accept (or deny) rule with logging ction disabled

Some of the ACC information is pulled from dataplane statistics and not traffic logs.  In some cases the only way to suppress protocol data from the ACC is to have a deny rule for that application in the Security policy.  This works well in a Tap mode environment, but may not be what you want to do in an inline deployment.



Thank you - we did this, and it works. It is not what we were looking for but will do the job for now.

Thank you - this explains why we are still seeing some traffic but not the levels that we saw before when it was all being logged.

All - it seems the best approach to solving this problem at this time is to create a rule for each protocol or application you do not want to display and disable logging and log forwarding. Not perfect, but it works.
