How to monitor and alert on sessions


I was wondering if anyone has done session monitoring on the network and management interfaces and then alerted as of when a threshold was breached?

I would like to do this for TCP and udp sessions

If you have what network monitoring solution did you use?

L4 Transporter

You can get this information using SNMP. OID . will show the number of active TCP sessions while . shows the number of active UDP sessions. Below are the links for the PAN MIBs:

PAN-OS version 5.0: Enterprise SNMP MIB 5.0

PAN-OS version 4.0: Enterprise SNMP MIB 4.0

There are a lot of other values in the MIB you can monitor as well.
