URL Filtering Log shows FORWARD

L3 Networker

Hey All -

I have several URL-Filtering logs that come through with a category of FORWARD.  Everything else is blank (URL, From Zone, To Zone, etc.).  Can anyone shed some light on what this means?

Hi Matt,

What is the URL vendor that you are using? Could you please attach the snapshot of one of the logs that you are seeing. Thank you.

We are using PAN-DB.  And I stand corrected.  Source and Destination addresses are present.  I've attached a screenshot.


That image looks pretty broken - it seems to have the application in the "From Zone" column and the Source Country in the Application column!  I wouldn't trust that output very much...

Maybe he named the zone on the firewall web-browsing? That would be kinda weird though

Are your logs from a device or from Panorama?  Also, what version of PAN-OS are you running?


Well of course I don't trust the output, lol.. that's the purpose of the question.  Regardless of how accurate the output is, it is showing up in our logs and I'd love to find out what it is.

Doris - Those logs are from a device, which forwards all log to an M-100 Log Collector.  That being said, the screenshot was taken from Panorama.

Your firewalls are effectively providing you corrupted data. Personally, I'd resolve that first and then go from there...

If you look on the CLI; do you get the same output?

Do you know if the logs are displayed correctly on the device?  Also, what version of PAN-OS is running on Panorama?  I know that there was a similar bug that was fixed, so I'm curious as to whether or not this is the same issue or another variant of it.
