Panorama Logging Traffic Flow

Hi All,

Does anyone have any indicative figures of the amount of data that flows from a PAN apppliance to Panorama?

Say a 4050 running at a consistant 50%, and logging everything = xMB/day of logs?

I'm trying to calculate what will be required to have Panorama remote to the actual appliances themselves

The logging rate is dependent on traffic mix, session duration, and other characteristics so it is hard to guess a number without measuring the actual data flow via CLI.

You can use the "debug log-receiver statistics" CLI command to take some measurements across the course of the day and average them out to calculate. Using 600 bytes as the average log size should yield a good approximation.

Can you confirm the correct syntax of the CLI command?  I am getting a syntax error when trying to use "debug log-receiver statistics" on a Panorama server running PANOS 4.0.4.

"debug log-receiver statistics" is only available on devices and not Panorama.

This is why I suggested taking measurements over the course of the day and computing averages.
