Loss of connectivity when trasfering log to syslog server

L2 Linker

Hello Everybody!

Our PAN firewallls send their log to a central syslog server; in case there is a gap in the connectivity (e.g. satellite link down) what happens to the corresponding log entries?

Shall the remote firewall store them till the connection is available again and then send them to the central server?

Thanks and Regards


@mikand Correct, Panorama uses an internal acknowledgment mechanism over a TCP/SSL channel for log forwarding.

Panorama does not currently support forwarding any logs which it did not internally generate. Thus, logs from devices cannot be sent from Panorama to a syslog server.

Any ETA on when logs that has been forwarded to Panorama can then from Panorama be forwarded further to a syslog-server or such?

Please speak with your SE about setting up a call PM.
