HIP check report interval

HIP check report interval

1. What is the interval for HIP reports that the GP client sends to the gateway? 

2. Is it configurable?

3. What triggers HIP report sending?

The default HIP check interval is 1 hour or as seen in the PanGPS logs is displayed in miliseconds as 3600000 ms.  The following is what the default interval would look like in the PanGPS logs:


 (T11392) 10/03/17 14:16:54:277 Debug(6007): Hip check interval is 3600000 ms.


To change the default interval time this would be modified on the Portal configuration using the following CLI commands:


 debug global-protect portal interval <seconds>
 debug global-protect portal on
 commit force



- The new HIP interval will affect all users and all portals

- This setting will remain even after a firewall reboot

- To verify the settings change in the CLI use:


> debug global-protect portal show

cfg.global-protect.portal.debug: True
cfg.global-protect.portal.hip-report-interval: 60    ( here I changed the setting to update every 60 seconds )

I'm having an issue where GP HIPS appear to expire, rendering all my rules useless and the client gets blocked eveywhere I have the HIP profile enabled. It happens after an hour of connectivity and its not always consistent. It kills long term ssh/rdp sessions and it does not seem to be related to idle timeout (3hr) or max time out (12hr).   Will decreasing the check time help?

Got same issue as you. Did you fixed it  ? 


Traffic match rule based on HIP profile, this is working fine most of the time, and suddenly, that stop working for short period of time. I'm suspecting HIP "report" to aging out (or expiring), but no clue how to troubleshoot this... Worst, this is within Prisma
