Traffic vs Threat Logs

L1 Bithead

I am searching for the reasons behind the relatively large disparity between traffic logs and threat logs for specified traffic searches in splunk. Redirected sessions cant be a contributed factor when the firewall is set to "log container page only"

The threat logs compliment the traffic logs and have some different fields. Hope that helps.

What exactly are you asking here?

Traffic logs and Threat logs are completely independent of eachother as far as size goes. I might have a single traffic log due to long-running sessions that can generate dozens/hundreds of threats in its lifetime depending on severity. 

Thanks for the reply. Actually I am seeing the exact opposite, many more traffic logs versus threat.
