How to generate traffic reports for a specifi interface

Hello Palo experts,

 

I want to create a report which tells me what bandwidth has been used on an outside interface, for say the past month. Something that can display the average bandwidth being used during a day would be good. I see on my PA-3050 that under Network>QoS, that live bandwidth stats can be displayed, but can't see where I can export monthly bandwidth stats.

 

Any advice or tips will be much appreciated.

 

Best regards,

 

Roberto

G means GigaBytes.

 

You can add same filters to Query Builder box that you use in

Monitor > Logs > Traffic

For example ( zone.src eq INSIDE ) and ( zone.dst eq OUTSIDE )

 

It does not give you average but you can add Day to Selected Columns and see amount for every day.

Hello Raido,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

I created a test report with the following settings, to see how much traffic was going out a particular interface (Ethernet1/10 is the interface I am interested in).

I get the following result when I do 'run now'.

Am I right that it gives me the total in bytes going out the interface? What does the 'G' mean when I look at 804.5G under bytes? It would be good if the report could tell the average bandwidth going out interface Ethernet 1/10 per day in a calender month.

 

Any further advice you could give is much appreciated.

 

Many thanks in advance.
