Hi @clyde.franklin


The criteria used depends strictly on your design, how many firewalls in the environment, model of each appliance, and what logs you are ingesting.

Because you have a very mixed environment with many HA pairs, I advise that you take a look at the following design document, and run some of the suggested tools in the article to get to a conclusion.


I hope this helps

With SNMP you can monitor the global log rate as well as also the log rate per device which is sending logs. Locally you could do it as in the link provided by @Willian but this is not the same as constantly monitoring and storing this history on an snmp monitor server.


I don't know how much traffic your firewalls need to handle and if you log everyrhing or just a few connections but using one M-100 seems to me a little undersized compared to the maximum log rates that all your firewalls support.
