Hello Satish,

Are you unable to see logs under Monitor > traffic....?

You may check with below mentioned CLI command, to confirm that the PAN firewall is generating traffic logs:

admin@31-PA-3020> debug log-receiver statistics

What log settings are enabled in the security-policy:



Hi Hulk,

I have not try with CLI but In GUI i m not able to find out. if any log comes in Monitor Tab its take around 20-30 mint gap.

Hi Satish,

Lets say if you are browsing, then you are supposed to close the page in browser. So session is terminated and firewall generates log.

If not, it waits till session timeout and then generates log.


Hardik Shah

As Hardik said, you need to close the browser or connection to generate traffic logs ( assuming that, you have only enabled "log at session end" on security policy). Otherwise, it will keep the session active till default session timeout value.

Default timeout values are given below:

Session timeout

  TCP default timeout:                           3600 secs

  TCP session timeout before SYN-ACK received:      5 secs

  TCP session timeout before 3-way handshaking:    10 secs

  TCP session timeout after FIN/RST:               30 secs

  UDP default timeout:                             30 secs

  ICMP default timeout:                             6 secs

  other IP default timeout:                        30 secs

  Captive Portal session timeout:                  30 secs

  Session timeout in discard state:

    TCP: 90 secs, UDP: 60 secs, other IP protocols: 60 secs

Hope this helps.
