PAN System Based Reports

Hi,

 

I have question about some system reports requests. Can PAN firewalls provide config reports belonging to changes which users made? Also Can I get system resources report by historical?

 

Thanks

Hi @skucukgul,

 

The Configuration log should be able to provide you with config reports belonging to changes which users made. (Monitor tab > Logs > Configuration).

 

As for historical data on system resources ... SNMP can help you with that.  This is just one of many links on SNMP : https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/documentation/71/pan-os/pan-os/monitoring/monitor-statistics-using-...

 

Or maybe even the browser extension Pan(w)achrome can help you : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRP1MF76Aw0

 

Cheers !

Hi @skucukgul,

 

I believe you can email the config log as a PDF (Device tab > Log Settings > Configuration > Add > Email).

I hope this helps !

 

Cheers !

@skucukgul,

I'm not sure that the logs setings that @kiwi menitoned will show up as a PDF. However if you configure an alert like so

          <entry name="config-any">
            <send-email>
              <member>Alert-Brandon</member>
            </send-email>
            <send-snmptrap>
              <member>Solar-SNMP</member>
            </send-snmptrap>
            <send-syslog>
              <member>Splunk</member>
            </send-syslog>
            <filter>All Logs</filter>
          </entry>

You'll get alerts emailed to you that look like this

domain: 1

serial: 
seqno: 6561945734562709763
