Wondering if it’s possible to get QoS (per queue) throughput stats via SNMP?

Unfortunately no. We don't have those stats in our MIBS. Please open a feature request with your SE.

Is there any other way to get historical throughput information for a specific QoS class?

We need to have some idea of how much traffic there is per QoS class, and most importantly if any classes are dropping traffic because they are hitting the PIR/CIR.


Isnt the stats available through the REST-api or such? This way you could at least as a workaround (until your feature request shows up in the PANOS Smiley Happy) create your own script to poll the PA-device and through the REST-api get the QoS figures as in cli/ssh.

Agree on luck of SNMP counters. CLI shows tons (show counter). I'll be interested in getting QoS stats as well. And most likely for the same reason (drops). Particular command might be:

show qos throughput <last 3 seconds of all classes>. I'm not sure how useful it'd be, if you want to see thruput per class. As for the poll itself ... Here's a small script that I use for the counter poll:


#!/usr/bin/env python
import sys
import pexpect

passwd = "password_here"
p=pexpect.spawn('ssh name@device')
p.expect("> ")
p.send("set cli scripting-mode on\n")
p.expect("> ")
p.send("show counter global name pkt_recv\n")
p.expect("Value: ")
result = p.readline().strip()
p.expect("> ")
print result


Looks somewhat like this (pic) . I probably need to add logic for showing just a difference and not the absolute valuegraphs.png
