Is there anyway to find out when a device was last shutdown?




I wish Palo had a cheatsheet for these useful commands. 

Hi Reaper,


Do you have a list? Or is there a documentation? For the list of "event types" on system logs.

I only know the basics like, ha/vpn/system-shutdown.

the query builder will help you with that kind of information:

so the list of 'types' in system log, at time of writing for PAN-OS 8.0 is:


  • dhcp - dhcp server or client messages
  • dnsproxy - dns proxy operations
  • general - general messages (auto updates etc. )
  • globalprotect - globalprotect messages
  • hw - hardware related alerts
  • ntpd - ntp update messages
  • port - link state messages
  • ras - RASMGR phase 1 & 2 messages
  • routing - route daemon messages
  • satd - globalprotect satelite messages
  • sslmgr - sslvpn messages
  • syslog - syslog forwarding messages
  • url-filtering - URL filtering database messages
  • userid - userID agent messages
  • vpn - site to site vpn messages

I never really used the query builder. Will try to use it more now. Thank you for this! Cheers!
