No logs in the monitor > traffic tab?

Hello All,

1.) I have just installed Palo Alto 7.1 in Eve-NG, and  made two interfaces as Vwire with zone Trust and Untrust.

2.) I am able to access access everthing (e.g. internet, ping, etc.) hence policies are working fine  as I have created a policy to allow everything from Trust to Untrust.


However I am not able to see any Traffic logs in the GUI it is blank.

Kindly see the below screenshot for your reference and let me know what's the reason please.

Thanks in advance.

This may sound obvious but make sure you are enabling the logging on  the security policies your traffic is hitting. you can log at session start and or sesssion end. 


Also the default intra and inter zone policies do not log so you have to set them to log as well.



Yes i agree with Okta.

Time App From Src Port Source
Rule Action To Dst Port Destination
Src User Dst User End Reason
admin@PA-VM> debug log-receiver statistics

I read that the VM needs to be licensed for monitoring, clustering and some other features to work. Not sure if it’s true

Yes the VM needs to be licensed, 

but you can still see some logs over 


Policies>security> "click on your rule" > usage 


Or-  from CLI 

> show session all 




did you find a solution, I have the same problem...

Palo doesn't log on VM PAN OS without license...

you PAN needs to be licensed to see logs 😃 

Agree if it is VM its need license.
