Panorama Logs Delay ~1 hour

L0 Member

Our Panorama is showing logs  (threat,url, etc...) about an hour after they occur on the firewalls.  

Is this normal behavior?  I'd like to be able to see the logs in near real time as they occur, otherwise the Panorama logs don't have much use if we have to wait for an hour for them to appear.


Any help would be appreciated.

have you verified connectivity between the panorama and firewalls is fast?


you could try jump-starting logging by stopping and restarting (try start-from-lastack first) log forwarding


from the panorama:

> request log-fwd-ctrl device <SerialNumber> action 
  latest               start log forwarding with  buffering, starting from the latest log
  live                 start log forwarding with no buffering
  start                start log forwarding with buffering
  start-from-lastack   start log forwarding with  buffering, starting from last ack'ed logid
  stop                 stop log forwarding

I've found that ours seem only like a few minutes delay but the firewalls and Panorama are on the same Layer 2 network.


On occasion, when we've need to reboot Panorama for various reasons, the time gap gets much larger but it seems to eventually catch back up as the firewalls sync up the backlogs.
