Rate increase in flow_ipv6_disabled

L0 Member

Hi All,


Is there any way to check which source of this flow_ipv6_disabled?


Our monitoring tool keeps on alerting us due to these parse packet drops. 


When I run the command below, I don't see any logs on Palo Alto's monitor. 


debug dataplane packet-diag set log counter flow_ipv6_disabled


Thank you in advance.

Your firewall is receiving IPv6 traffic on an interface that isn't IPv6 enabled. You could enable IPv6 to view the source on the firewall in question, or you could setup a packet capture in front of the firewall to identify the source.
