Real Time Traffic on PA Interface

L2 Linker

Hi All, 


I am stucked with  very basic requirement on Palo-alto firewall. 


Would like to know how to check the traffic statistics on PA Interfaces as requirement is to check the current live traffic on specific Interface. 


Followed some articles available on Internet. But none of them are correct or useful. They referring to Network -> QoS for checking the Interface statistics after adding them. But the outcome shown is not correct or close to reality (showing on Egress). 


Also tried to explore widget options in ACC tab. But no luck there as well.


Can anyone suggest the way (both GUI and CLI) to check the real time traffic flow on PA Interface.

There's an older Chrome extension that does this graphically really well called pan(w)achrome  that Luigi made that works really well for this. If that doesn't work for you and you aren't happy with a QoS graphs that you were able to get, the next thing would be to actually setup SNMP monitoring to graph it manually or through netflow.
