Unused rules

I know it is possible to get unused rules since last reboot, but it is obvious the data is in Panorama.  Is there no way to get a list of rules not used since a specified date?

It's an all or nothing feature. If the rule has been hit since last reboot then it isn't going to be shown as unused. I know that there is a manual way to reset this without actually restarting the thing, I can't think of it at the moment.

Hi @SSaady,


How about using the ACC feature ?

Add the rule usage widget and specify a custom timeframe ... any rule not showing up in the report is unused.

I hope this works for you.

I have a rule that shows unused in the ACC and on the traffic monitor but when I choose to highlight unused rules it show used and this was before and  after a reboot
