QoS Reporting

I've deployed QoS on a PA-3050 and currently have 2 profiles that I'm specifically rate limiting at different bandwidths (class5 and class6). I've looked through all of the reports as well as App Scope but can't find anything that shows me bandwidth usage by QoS profile. Essentially the customer is looking to have a line graph that shows bandwidth utilization based on the QoS profiles we've assigned, in relation to the rest of the bandwidth that's being used.

They were previously using Packet Shaper to do this same thing, and were able to get those reports and were looking for something similar from PA.

Does PAN have a similar function that can report on actual usage by QoS profile?

Thanks for any information!

QoS statistics graph shows you the usage of realtime bandwidth. If you want to monitor the bandwidth usage, you will need to use third party tools like Netflow or the templates listed here: https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/thread/4367?tstart=0

Hi,

Yes, QoS and more reporting based on QoS is not really developed in Palo. If you are looking for something close to the shaper you will be really disappointed.

I think the best way to do that should be to use Netflow and send all traffic to NetFlow collector (There is free one under linux)

Thanks for the helpful responses, I had also submitted a support ticket on this issue and they came back stating it would have to be submitted as a feature request.

Thanks again

Did anything ever happen with this?  Would still be useful...

@RISI

I am absolutely with you but this still isn't possible out of the box. But there are ways to monitor the qos values and then do reporting there ... for example something like this: https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/Automation-API-Discussions/QoS-Monitoring-for-PRTG-Network-Moni...
