create a security policy rule that has this one user in the "source user" column. in the "options" of this security rule make sure that you are not logging the user's traffic.

you can include as many or as few applications as you wish on this rule and thus log as much or as little traffic as you wish for any particular user.

If you configure the paloalto to exclude a user from monitoring, the paloalto count this sessions???

I have a problem with a paloalto 2050. we have more session that the paloalto permit. And I want exclude some traffic to reduce the number of sessions. It's posible?

Thank´s

Sorry but excluding the users from logging will not impact the number of sessions it will simply hide the sessions that user is creating.

Hi Alberto,

You can try to reduce the tcp timeout so that the session table will be freed up faster:

set session timeout-tcp <value>

Default is 3600s and you may to reduce it to 1800 and monitor. Some application maybe affected if the timeout value is too small. But if your no. of session kept on incresing dramatically you need to refill your ACC and other reports to find out the cause and decide if you need a bigger box to handle that capacity of traffic.
