@ebonjour I was to quick answering you without reading that you have already tried rebooting the device. It worked at least for me... Regards.

If you are having the same problem I am, then the commit queueing will occuring again.  Usually this takes about 5-10 minutes, but sometimes longer.

I'd be curious to see if you pulled a snapshot and reinstalled Panorama from scratch on the same version if this continued to happen.  Perhaps some residual garbage from the upgrade process?  I know that sounds painful.

After 3 months of this I would try anything, but this does sound really painful.  The worst part of this is that diffs fail, these actually timeout after 4 minutes and 30 seconds, unlike commits that do not have a failure timer (kinda scary!).

After 4 months I asked for esclation and after a couple days received a request to make a simple change.

Panorama -> Setup -> Logging and Reporting Settings -> Buffered Log Fowarding from Device - enable it.

It took 3 hours to impact one set of HA firewalls and 6 hours another another set.  Not enabling this requires the firewalls ACK every single log sent to Panorama which increases mgmt CPU usage and causes issues like I had. 


Not sure if this setting is default in later releases, it should be.  I've had this panorama install since 5.1 and upgraded since then, issue starting happening after upgrading to 8.0.x.

I can confirm this is the default on newer installs.  Here is a screenshot from a new install from a few weeks ago in the lab.  Glad you figured this out!
